Top 10 Best Cars for Students Going Back-to-School

 

 Back To School

With the new school year soon approaching, many students and parents are considering the transportation needs of getting to class, home and various other activities. To help students and parents narrow down their choices, U.S.-based Kelley Blue Book has announced their picks for the 2016 Top 10 Back-to-School Cars.

Each pick was chosen with safety, affordability and practicality in mind and Kelley Blue Book believes this list has something both parents and students will like. "Safety is the paramount decision when it comes to back-to-school cars, practicality and affordability are also high on the list of desirable characteristics, at least according to parents," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com. "The kids involved also prefer to have a car they're happy to be seen in, which suggests that style is part of the equation too. Our 2016 list of the 10 Best Back-to-School Cars addresses all of these wants with an array of cool cars that has something for just about any returning student."
