Whether your grad just finished high school or college, a new Nissan model can help them tackle the road ahead. A new vehicle offers a great way to explore the world, cultivate responsibility, commute to work, and more.

Here's what we recommend for your new grads:

2018 Nissan Versa

The 2018 Nissan Versa (pictured above) is perfect for young drivers due to its compact size, safety features, and affordability. Not only does it start out at an MSRP of just $12,110,1 but the Versa handles its 109 horsepower well thanks to fuel-efficient aerodynamics, speed-sensitive electric power steering, and variable valve timing. Making it even easier to take out for a drive, it boasts an EPA-estimated 31 city/39 highway mpg.2

Inside, a host of available tech features awaits, including a Bluetooth® hands-free phone system. It's roomy, too, with a ceiling height of 39.8 inches and the most rear legroom in its class. With the Nissan Versa, graduates can go anywhere.

2018 Nissan Kicks

If your grad would prefer a compact crossover, take a look at the all-new 2018 Nissan Kicks (though they'll need to be a little patient—the Kicks doesn't arrive until June). With a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter engine, this crossover offers the style and performance that synonymous with the Nissan name. 

The Kicks is ready to provide plenty of fun while getting your grads where they need to go. And one of the best benefits? They'll spend less time at the pump, thanks to fuel-efficient technology and an estimated 33 combined mpg.3

Apart from improving fuel expenses, the Nissan Kicks continues the Juke's reputation as one of the most versatile and appealing crossovers around. It offers a split folding rear seat as well as available features like a surround-view camera system and heated exterior mirrors, and thanks to a spacious 25.3 cubic feet of interior space, we're confident the Kicks has enough room for whatever your grad wants to bring on their next adventure.

Nissan College Grad Program

Nissan also offers a special program, reserved for college graduates, called the Nissan College Grad Program. This program is designed to help young people start their adult lives successfully behind the wheel of a Nissan. The program offers convenient savings and easy approval for young people buying or leasing a new car. An excellent way to build credit with flexible and competitive finance and lease packages, the Nissan College Grad Program is a great choice for any new grad.
