Best Back to School Cars for the 2016-2017 School Year

It definitely isn’t too late to look at back to school cars, even if school has already started for you. Labor Day weekend is the Black Friday of auto sales, so save your car shopping for that weekend and get a great deal on one of these perfect cars for students!

Chevy Spark Is Among the Best back to school cars
Head Back to School in a Chevy Spark!

A favorite for students is the 2016 Chevy Spark. A tiny subcompact car with great fuel economy, parents will be happy for their teen to drive something easy to maneuver and comes with a small sticker price. The Chevy Sonic also tends to pop up on back to school lists thanks to its small size, cool styling, and safety-oriented features like Siri Eyes Free.

Chevy is also integrating “Teen Mode” into some of its cars, so keep an eye out for that. The 2016 Chevy Malibu has Teen Mode, which lets parents use a PIN to give information to parents about how teens are driving as well as muting the sound system until seatbelts are buckled and even lowers the maximum speed the car can go.

If you want to spring for something a little more pricey, the Buick Encore is a fun choice for students. It’s spacious and has plenty of room for your athlete’s gear, but it’s still compact and easy to maneuver. These are just some of the great cars parents and teens can agree on, so if you’re still not sure, ask us more at Bradshaw Automotive!
