Kbb Lists Back-to-School Favorites


Kelley Blue Book - August 8, 2012

Kel­ley Blue Book real­izes teenagers are headed back to school and want proper ‘wheels’ to get there (what’s wrong with walk­ing or tak­ing a bus?). So kbb.com lists the “10 Best Back-to-School Cars” for parents.

Can you guess which vehi­cle made it to the top of the list for 2012?

2012 Kia Soul
With a low price tag, roomy inte­rior and sin­gu­lar looks, the Kia Soul charms with a prac­ti­cal but youth­ful exu­ber­ance.  And it gets even bet­ter for 2012, gain­ing direct injec­tion tech­nol­ogy and six-speed trans­mis­sions that yield bumps in power, respon­sive­ness and fuel econ­omy.  Stir in taste­fully refreshed exte­rior and inte­rior bits, and the Soul con­vinc­ingly grabs the top spot on our list of Best Back-to-School Cars for 2012.

For the remain­ing vehi­cles, includ­ing full edi­to­r­ial com­men­tary for each of the edi­tors’ picks and the rank order, (plus infor­ma­tion on car-shopping and buy­ing tips for par­ents and teens) please visit http://www.kbb.com/car-reviews-and-news/top-10/best-back-to-school-cars-2012/.
