Honda Fit Tops Kelley Blue Book Back to School List*

October 3rd, 2016 by

Honda FitThe 2016 Honda Fit has taken top honors when it comes to the Kelley Blue Book Top Ten Back To School Cars*. The Honda Fit has been ranked number one for the past three consecutive years, making it a leading pick for any young driver heading to school in the Elgin area. You can find the Fit right now here at Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake, or find out more about how the Fit is near the top of its class.

The Fit Wins with Kelley Blue Book

In its back to school rankings, Kelley Blue Book has picked cars that are good picks for students heading back to school. These cars are all priced under $20,000, so they’re affordable, but that’s not the only factor Kelley Blue Book takes into account.

“Safety is the paramount decision when it comes to back-to-school cars, and practicality and affordability are also high on the list of desirable characteristics, at least according to parents,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. “The kids involved also prefer to have a car they’re happy to be seen in, which suggests that style is part of the equation too. Our 2016 list of the 10 Best Back-to-School Cars* addresses all of these wants with an array of cool cars that has something for just about any returning student.”

The 2016 Honda Fit topped the list*, and it should come as no surprise to families here in Chicagoland that the 2016 Honda Civic and the 2016 Honda HR-V both made the list as well, coming in at numbers three and four respectively. No other automaker had three cars on the top ten list.

In awarding the Honda Fit the top honors, Kelley Blue Book reviewers wrote that the Fit is, “Still an unmatched mix of affordability, efficiency, versatility, reliability and fun.” In addition, they noted that the Fit is, “Positively cavernous inside, the Fit’s flipping/folding second-row Magic Seat makes it the most flexible car in its class.”

It’s easy to see why the Honda Fit is a pick that both parents and students can get behind!
