In order to be named to the 10 Best Back-to-School Cars List, a vehicle must offer great safety features and capability, practicality and reliability, and style that young drivers will appreciate. Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst of Kelley Blue Book, explained that this is what helps a vehicle earn a spot on the 10 Best Back-to-School Cars List:

“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. The kids involved also prefer to have a car they’re happy to be seen in, which suggests that style is a 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 have something for just about any returning student.”

The 2016 Subaru Impreza earned the prestigious TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It also features the Subaru brand’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology. It features four-wheel antilock brakes, vehicle dynamics control, a rearview camera, and more!
