Honda’s modern lineup of vehicles includes a versatile selection of fuel-efficient and stylish cars that are perfect for college graduates concerned with saving at the pump.

All 2023 Hondas provide recent college grads with a plethora of advanced safety features and the opportunity to get $500 toward their favorite model through the Honda Graduate Program.*

To qualify for the offer students need:

  • Proof of employment or proof of commitment from an employer
  • Graduate date within the last 2 years or will graduate within the next 6 months
  • Standard credit and documentation requirements from your Hampton Roads Honda Dealers

The $500 offer can be used toward the down payment -- so the additional money can be used on gas, insurance, or any monthly payments on award-winning, fuel-efficient Hondas like the 2023 CR-V and Civic. 

2023 Honda Civic 

The Honda Civic offers young drivers a sporty, sleek design combined with quality performance and gas mileage. With 4 different available trim options, there’s sure to be a Civic model for every young driver’s needs. 

The Civic LX is an affordable and dependable sedan for college grads that averages 31 MPG** in the city and 40 while on the highway. Honda Sensing features help to mitigate the risk of an accident while on the road or listening to loud music and will even take corrective actions to avoid danger. 

Whether you’re going to a Virginia beach or taking off on a summer road trip, it’s important to have a reliable and safe vehicle that records good gas mileage. 

2023 Honda CR-V

Another fuel-efficient and exciting car to drive is the 2023 Honda CR-V. The CR-V also gives environmentally concerned drivers the option for two different hybrid trims. The more affordable Sport Hybrid records 43 MPG*** in the city and 36 on the highways.

All CR-V trim models comfortably fit 5 passengers with adequate space for camping equipment and extended adventures. 

The 2023 HR-V is a more affordable and compact SUV option that can also be an ideal driving choice for young grads.
