Before the student in your life settles on a new car for the next school year, make sure they’ve taken the time to explore all their options! The Honda vehicles that were recently highlighted by Kelley Blue Book’s list of the Best Back-to-School Cars* provide an excellent starting point. Compared to other vehicles in their respective segments, Honda’s best back-to-school cars stand out for their low starting prices, their flexibility, and their sharp looks.

Choosing the Perfect Honda

The 2018 Honda Fit, the 2018 Honda HR-V, and the 2017 Honda Civic each provides plenty of passenger and cargo space, tons of top technology features, and of course, incredible fuel economy ratings. In addition to all this, they’re each as affordable as any vehicles in their respective classes, so you won’t have to break the bank to send your student back to school in style. Drivers would also be wise to consider the 2017 Honda CR-V. Although it wasn’t named on the KBB list, it did earn a spot on the U.S. News and World Report’s list of the Best New Cars for Teens!
