The Best Car to Buy for Back to School!
Every year around this time two momentous things happen. First, the kids go back to school! Second, Kelly Blue Book (KBB) releases its list of the best back to school vehicles!
So KBB has been releasing this list for the past few years and it’s become pretty popular with consumers. Why? Well it’s the best time to buy a new car and most families are looking for larger vehicles to take the kids, teams, and friends to all the activities, meetings, and gatherings associated with the new school year. Koons represents over 22 manufacturers in 16 locations and all of them are here to help you find your new car for whatever time of year it is.
Couple that with current Koons offer of 125% KBB value on your trade-in and you can see why getting a new car now for the school year is so great! So not only do you get the best vehicle for your little ones but you also will get the best price on your trade-in!
Here are some of the vehicles that made the list:
This year’s wide-ranging list includes a small SUV, a 50-mpg hybrid and an all-wheel drive option, and every car here starts under $20,000.
#7. 2014 Chevy Sonic – 26/35 MPG:
The well-rounded Sonic is one of the most fun-to-drive and most comfortable sub-
compact cars out there. Available in sedan and hatchback flavors, the Sonic was also one of the first cars to offer next-level iPhone integration via Siri Eyes Free. As a bonus, it’s also the most affordable car on this list.
#5. 2014 Toyota Prius C – 53/46 MPG:
The easy-to-park and amazingly fuel-
efficient Prius C is an ideal choice for
students living far off campus. Likeable
looks, hatchback versatility and Toyota
reliability make its combined fuel economy
(both city and highway driving) rating of
50 mpg even more attractive.
#4. 2014 Mazda 3 – 30/41 MPG:
The stylish and sporty Mazda3 isn’t just a smart choice for students; it’s also one of this year’s 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000. Available in sedan and hatchback versions, the totally redesigned 2014 Mazda 3 is also more efficient, more tech-savvy and more comfortable than ever.
#2. 2014 Kia Soul – 24/30 MPG:
The redesigned-for-2014 Soul is loaded with personality, yet at its core is wonderfully
practical. The fuel-efficient hatchback seats
five comfortably and has a large and impressive cargo volume to ace a trip to IKEA for dorm room furniture.
The list has been fairly consistent over time and has been a helpful guide to base your buying decisions on. In the coming years the list will become more and more popular and we’ll keep an eye on it here. But, just remember you’ll get the best deal around from Koons no matter what you buy or when you buy it. ♛
