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.
