Best New Car for the Single Person

Read up on any new car review and you're sure to find one consistent theme. Family, family, family. Is it a good fit for the family budget? Does it seat two and a half kids and a dog named Spot? Can the rear hatch squeeze in a stroller while leaving room for that monthly Costco run?

Sound familiar? Heck, we're guilty of it too. But we also know that many of you roll solo, free from attachments and the responsibilities of a family unit. Sure, you've got different needs but that does not mean they are any less important than those found behind the latch of the white picket fence down the street. That's why today we are dedicating an article to you and you alone, those of you in no rush to sign up for match.com, those of you who embrace the freedom of single life. We salute you. Now let's find you a four-wheeled companion.

3 Top Toyota Cars for Those Living (and Embracing) the Single Life

2018 Toyota Corolla iM

Best New Car for the Single Person - Corolla IM

This is not the Corolla you're already familiar with. Sure, it's just as reliable as ever, but you can also add the word to "aggressive" to the adjectives used to describe this impressive new addition to Toyota's tried and true brand. 

The sporty hatchback's aggressive body kit is complemented by a black honeycomb grille, spoiler, chrome-dipped exhaust pipes, and vortex-designed 17-inch alloy wheels. But don't worry, the exterior design is no smokescreen, as the vehicle performs on the road like a beast too. The Corolla iM is delivered (standard) with a sport-tuned MacPherson strut front suspension and double-wishbone rear suspension, so when you feel the need to escape the city (what's holding you back?) you can hit the highway, hit the Sport Mode, and bend those corners like a man/women without constraints. And you'll be able to control your on-road destiny at a glance, thanks to the iM's sport gauge cluster with a 4.2-inch color Multi-Information Display that tells you what you need to know the second you need to know it, be it your average mpg or current playlist song selection.

The new vehicle also comes with some pretty sweet color options, including Electric Storm Blue,  Spring Green Metallic, Barcelona Red Metallic, and more. The best part? You don't have to ask anyone else what color they prefer for your car. Isn't the single life grand? View more on the 2018 Corolla iM.

2018 Toyota Prius c

Best New Car for the Single Person - Prius c

You're not attached, but that doesn't mean you can't go on some amazing adventures with your crew. In fact, your lifestyle encourages exactly that! And with the new 5-door access Prius c with  available 60/40 split fold-down rear seats you can fit in friends and gear with ease. 

Always the most hip of the Prius line, the updated version of the Prius c comes standard with  15-inch (16-inch available) 8-spoked machined alloy wheels with dark-gray-painted accents and the sportiest exterior to date. The Prius is also known for its tech, and this edition does not disappoint. For starters, you've got standard Bluetooth wireless technology to ignite it all, allowing you to keep your playlist running without missing a call about the opening of a new club downtown. Of course, it's not all fun and games, as integrated technology includes a backup camera and available integrated navigation. The interior is also packed with comfort and style, which most notably includes available three-toned SofTex-trimmed seating that you won't want to get up from.

As the industry's first name in sustainability, the Prius is also as economical as it gets, something someone with a single-income budget will appreciate. With a balance between ECO and EV Mode you've got an EPA-estimated 48 mpg city that minimizes your carbon footprint while keeping money in the bank. And in case you like reminding of that fact, you can always reference the integrated Energy Monitor that delivers information on your real time Eco Savings. View more on the 2018 Prius c.

2018 Toyota Yaris Hatchback

Best New Car for the Single Person - Yaris Hatchback

The Yaris is probably the quintessential "singles" vehicle. In 2018, Toyota stripped out the unnecessary and stuck to the goods, the ones that matter most to you. In the process, the manufacturer upgraded key accents to set the tone for the most exciting year the Yaris has seen to date. The available 16-inch allow wheels feature sleek dark accents while the available LED Daytime Running Lights showcase a unique accent light bar to brighten things up and balance out the whole look and feel of the athletic hatchback. 

The interior is packed with what you need, including a USB port, Bluetooth connectivity, advanced voice recognition, and a 6.1-inch touch-screen to help you manage it all on your solo excursions. The new Yaris also includes other conveniences you will find you can't live without, such as available remote keyless entry and convenient storage compartments. Everything inside is enhanced by the interior design, with available sport fabric-trimmed seats, metallic interior trim accents, and satin chrome interior door handles.
