Top Back-To-School Cars From Honda

It’s just about time for many of us to head back to school for the fall and for some of us that also means getting a car for school. Kelley Blue Book recently narrowed down the search for us, creating a list of the top 10 best back-to-school cars. Unsurprisingly, two Honda vehicles made the list. Both the Honda HR-V and Fit are great options for students, with the Fit topping the list on KBB.

We weren’t too surprised to see the Fit at the top of the KBB list. Young drivers and students will particularly appreciate this mixture of affordability and different capabilities. The engine sips gas with an EPA rated mileage rating of 33 city and 41 highway while offering a sporty 130 horsepower. Similarly ideal for students, the fit is efficient with its space thanks to the standard Honda Magic Seats. This offers ample flexibility for moving days. It also reads your texts for you so students can pay attention to the road.

The HR-V is the more off-road ready cousin of the Fit with each trim offering the option for all-wheel drive. The best part is that it is still an affordable vehicle with plenty of ideal aspects for students. Also coming with the magic Seats, it is easy to fit gear for the outdoors or even pack everyone in for a road trip on spring break. The engine that produces 141 horsepower is nearly as efficient with a rating of 28 city and 35 highway mpg.
