Whether you are a student or have a student in the family, you may be in the market for a great back-to-school car for college. If so, the 2016 Subaru Impreza is one of your top choices according to Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com.

“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 of 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.

Impreza stood out in several of the areas mentioned above and more. It landed on KBB.com’s 10 Best Back-to-School Cars list for 2016 not only due to its youthful styling and updated technologies but also its affordable cost. The Impreza’s excellent safety scores also stood out. The model earned a Top Safety Pick title from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel drive, among many other safety features.

In addition, the Subaru Impreza’s 148-horsepower 2.0L BOXER engine achieves the best fuel economy of any gas AWD car in America. EPA-fuel economy estimates stand at an impressive 28 mpg city and 37 mpg highway (with CVT).
