Get a Load of Kia’s Best Back-to-School Vehicles
September is here, and the new school year is in full swing. If you have a younger driver who has just gotten their license or needs a new ride, don’t entrust just any car with the responsibility of getting your student to their studies. Kia’s best back-to-school vehicles offer the style and technology that will give them confidence in making new friends, as well as the safety and substance that will help you rest easier when they leave the house every morning.
For all the consideration that you will give potential back-to-school vehicles, from perspectives like safety and reliability, there is still the matter of helping your student make a strong and lasting first impression. Fortunately, the Kia Soul—J.D. Power’s “Highest Ranked Compact Multi-Purpose Vehicle in Initial Quality, 3 Years in a Row”1—is a bit of everything you need and the unmistakable style you want. Kelley Blue Book® named the 2017 Kia Soul No. 2 on its “10 Best Back-to-School Cars 2017” list, calling it “a practical, feature-filled, respectable small car.”
If the unique styling of the Kia Soul is not your young driver’s forte, perhaps they would be better suited with the traditional-yet-dynamic styling of the Kia Forte. The 2017 Forte provides the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your teen’s vehicle is equipped with cutting-edge safety technologies like Blind Spot Detection, Lane Change Assist, and a Rear-Camera Display—technologies that helped the Forte earn both the IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK+ Award and NHTSA’s 5-Star Safety Rating. And as J.D. Power’s “Highest Ranked Compact Car in Initial Quality”2, you can be certain that the 2017 Kia Forte is built to last well into grad school and beyond.
Your child will probably bristle every time you make a joke about how strange it is that their car is named Rio but it does not dance on the sand. That’s okay; with standard SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and available UVO eServices Infotainment System, you can turn your teen on to the music that defined your childhood. Beyond that, your young driver will love the sportiness of the 2017 Rio’s 1.6-liter GDI engine, not to mention the money they’ll save at the pump with its upwards of 37 highway mpg.3 Adding further to the enjoyment factor is the 2017 Rio’s revamped exterior styling and a comfortable interior that exudes personality. In a word, the Kia Rio is all about being FUNctional.™
Give your student the encouragement they need heading into the new school year—and provide yourself with the confidence that they will get there safely—by gifting them with one of these fine Kia vehicles. They’re all available right here at Crown Kia of Tyler, where you’re certain to get an A+ shopping experience.
