Honda Fit Tops KBB’s '10 Best Back-to-School Cars’ List


Right in time for the start of the new semester, Kelley Blue Book1 has released their annual “10 Best Back-to-School Cars” list. Topping the list for the third consecutive year is our very own star pupil, the Honda Fit. A fun little charmer, the Fit establishes itself once more as a perfect choice for young drivers.

When building the list, KBB considers both the perspectives of parents and kids. While parents’ main concerns are safety, affordability and practicality, their high school and college-aged children understandably want a car that is cool and fun. The Honda Fit charms the pants off of parents and students alike and doesn’t require either side to compromise.

KBB’s editors were once again pleased by the Fit’s multitude of great features, describing the compact car hatchback as having an “unmatched mix of affordability, efficiency, versatility, reliability and fun.” The Fit proves itself to be a practical and efficient choice by offering excellent fuel-economy, loads of cargo space and a standard multi-angle rearview camera. The Fit also boasts a 5-Star Overall NHTSA safety rating2. Factor in the trendy styling and well-equipped interior, and it’s no surprise that the Fit spends so much time in the spotlight.

Also on the list is the Honda HR-V and the Honda Civic, both stylish choices also guaranteed to exceed the expectations of parents and students. As the nameplate with the most appearances on the list, Honda offers a stellar reputation of quality and reliability.

At our dealership in Arlington, we have a great selection of 2016 and 2017 new Honda cars. Visit us today to learn more about our finance and lease specials!
