Students and parents don’t always agree on what makes a great car for a teenager. Parents are more concerned about safety and practicality; kids want something that looks good to impress their friends. However, Kelley Blue Book recently sought to close the gap by seeking out the best back-to-school cars that combine style and practicality – and the Ford Fiesta was ranked among them.
The Ford Fiesta is a subcompact car, which means it’s small and lightweight. This means it is both fuel-efficient and easier to maneuver. You won’t have to worry about navigating into tight parking spaces in the Fiesta, and you will save your teen (or you, if you’re the one who gives out gas money) plenty of cash in the way of fueling up with its 37 mpg highway. Plus, with a bold, modern style and fun driving dynamics, the Fiesta is stylish, too.
Another thing that earned the Fiesta its spot among the best back-to-school cars is its incredible price. The Fiesta can typically be found for under $15,000, making it a great, budget-friendly option for kids looking to buy their first car. And if you’re a good student, maybe you can even convince your parents to opt for the more powerful ST model.
