| August 21, 2019

Many college graduates are in the market for a vehicle to get them to interviews or a new job reliably. While there’s a vast selection of vehicles to choose from, important considerations like safety and affordability can help narrow your search.

Vehicle safety should be a priority when making a purchase decision, as it helps ensure you’re protected in the event of a collision. Many newer vehicles are equipped with technology like lane departure warning, blind spot information systems, and braking assistance technology to help prevent a collision or lessen its severity. 

Choosing a vehicle that’s within your budget will also impact what you ultimately decide to buy. Mercury’s research and development team examined model-year vehicles from 2015-2018 that received a 5-Star Safety Rating from NHTSA and a Top Safety Pick+ or Top Safety Pick from IIHS to come up with a top-10 list of the safest and most affordable vehicles to insure for college grads:

  1. 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe
