Slideshow: In Pictures: Best Cars for College Students

8 of 9

The Ford Fusion may look buttoned up, but car reviewers say it’s one of the best-driving affordable midsize sedans you can buy. Available all-wheel drive make it a good choice if campus is in a snowy area. Inside, the Fusion can be equipped with Ford’s SYNC system, which uses voice commands to control the phone, radio, and climate systems. Ford’s MyKey system, which parents can program to limit speed and radio volume, as well as sound alerts when certain speeds are reached, is another way the Fusion keeps college students safe.
