New cars aren’t always in the plan for a college student, but whether you are a first year undergrad or starting your graduate degree, the 2011 Ford Fiesta is worth a look. The best part is that a Fiesta could save you a bunch of money with its best-in-class 40-mpg highway fuel economy and a starting price near $14K. The Fiesta also has no less than 15 class-exclusive features that include the SYNC® system, Push Button Start, heated seats and premium metallic paint colors.

Bottom line—the 2011 Ford Fiesta is a compact, but roomy entry-level car that is changing the rules for what a small car means here in the States. With a low base price and good manufacturer warranty, the Fiesta might be worth a look instead of a used car that might cause you more headache than fun.
