Find the Perfect Second Vehicle for Your Family

With jobs, school, extracurricular activities, and family outings on the schedule, life can get pretty busy. If you and your family have been sharing one vehicle, it might be time to add another. These comfortable, practical family haulers from Toyota are two of your best options for a second vehicle. Both models are available to test-drive here at Midwest Superstore.

Toyota Sienna

The Toyota Sienna is an impressive minivan packed with everything a family needs on the road. Its roomy cabin offers seating for up to eight people, along with fold-flat seats that make it easy to load a wide variety of cargo. Available all-wheel drive and advanced driver-assist safety features make the Sienna a secure family transportation option, too.

Toyota Highlander Hybrid

Saving money is always a good thing, and it’s easy to do so when your second vehicle is a hybrid model. The Toyota Highlander SUV comes in a hybrid trim that delivers up to 30 mpg on the highway.* On top of that, this seven-seat SUV comes with a standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P suite of driver-assist features, along with an available rear-seat entertainment system that will help occupy children (and adults) on your long family trips.

If you have any young drivers in your household, they are probably getting ready for a new school year to start. Send them off on the right track with a new car for a new year. Here are some of the best used cars for going back to school.

Chevrolet Trax

The Trax is a subcompact SUV that will be a perfect fit on any campus. Even with its small size, it offers plenty of interior space and lots of technology. Its good fuel economy will also help you save money on fill-ups.

Toyota Corolla

The Corolla has been an American favorite for decades. Recent model years come with bold, new styling. You can find many advanced driver assist technologies, even on the lower trim levels.

Nissan Versa Note

If you are looking to spend as little on a car as possible, the Nissan Versa Note hatchback is one of the least expensive vehicles on the road today. Even still, it offers lots of available features and has a surprisingly spacious cabin.

Kia Soul

You can’t go wrong with the spunky styling of the Kia Soul. Even with its small size, it comes with lots of cargo space and a roomy back seat.

Helpful Tips for Car Shopping for your College Student

car shopping for your college student

 

As a parent, sending a child off to college can be both exciting and challenging. While it will come with some added financial burden, making sure your college-bound kid is equipped with a good car can have many benefits. Here are some things to consider when car shopping for your college student:

 

Costs

 

When you account for tuition, meals, books, and housing, the costs of college can quickly add up. That’s why it’s important to shop smart when picking out a car for your college student. We highly recommend finding a car that won’t add too much to the already high cost of sending your child to college.

 

Luckily, buying a certified pre-owned car combines many of the perks of a brand new car with the more affordable price of a used vehicle. When you shop certified pre-owned, you can rest assured that your child is behind the wheel of a good, safe car without the burden of high monthly payments.

 

Needs vs. Wants

 

When shopping for a college student, it’s important to consider what your driver really needs from a car. While they might love the idea of a big SUV or pickup, smaller cars are easier to handle, make parking easier, and generally get better gas mileage than larger cars.

 

Our lot is filled with a diverse range of incredible vehicles; discover which one is right for your college-bound kid when you visit Midwest Superstore.
