Mr. Cheah,

First I would like to say you are such a Great Dad
to buy a car for your son !

I would recommend a Hyundai Accent
VFM (Value for Money)
It is economical, reliable, safety features and price wise $$$

The Extra $$ save can be used for his studies or
for your ownself/Family.

Other points to consider

Will he be using it for long ?
College is 1 - 2 year study before going overseas ?
Doing a 3 + 0 program. Will he use it for work after that ?
Frequency of usage. Just college and back ?
Will other family members share it ?
The cars you listed. Skip the sporty ones because you don't
want kids driving fast and with a sporty car they tend to
do that.
An economical in terms of FC as you know prices of gasoline is
going up, low FC saves $$$ (unless $$ is not an option) (just being
Low maintenance cost saves $$

Just my 3 cents.
