KBB: Top 10 Back-To-School Cars

With a new school year right around the corner, many parents are considering what vehicle to buy the new teen driver in the family.  To help narrow down your choices, the editors at Kelley Blue Book are out with this year’s 10 Best Back-to-School Cars of 2015.

Here’s the criteria. Each of the new-car recommendations cost $20,000 or less, according to Kelley Blue Book’s Fair Purchase Price.  Updated weekly and based on current market conditions like vehicle availability, local demand and seasonal buying trends, the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price shows shoppers what others have been paying for a new car recently and is included in’s Price Advisor tool, which provides range-based market pricing.

“Every parent believes that a good back-to-school car is practical, functional, safe and affordable, and every student believes it’s far more important to have something fun and stylish.  Our annual 10 Best Back-to-School Cars list has something for everyone, including cars that both parents and kids can agree on,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s “The 2015 Honda Fit came to the head of the class once again as our No. 1 Back-to-School Car this year.  The Fit might just be the most versatile vehicle on this list, able to carry as much gear as a small crossover, yet boasting a much smaller footprint and better fuel economy.  The list also contains other terrific choices that are as fun-to-own as they are affordable to own.”’s 10 Best Back-to-School Cars for 2015
