Drive to your new job in a new car
Bankrate recognizes that when you finally land that first job, you'll probably want to upgrade your ride. So, we picked the seven best new cars under $25,000 to begin your career.
The only criteria considered in making these picks were that they provide value as well as better-than-average fuel economy.
Because fuel economy continues to be a prime driver of car purchases, only cars with superior mpg ratings in city and highway driving qualified for consideration.
Compare The Best Auto Loan Rates
Prices are manufacturer suggested retail prices without delivery charges. Because most drivers prefer automatic transmissions, the listed prices include the automatic transmission cost if optional. Every 2014 car on the list has power windows, outboard mirrors and door locks, as well as safety features like stability control, traction control, anti-lock brakes and at least six air bags.
Even if you don't love that new job, you'll love driving to it in one of Bankrate's picks.
