DETROIT (WWJ) – With the 2013-2014 school season right around the corner, many parents and students will be taking a trip to the car lot as part of their back-to-school shopping.

Editors from Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com hand-picked a selection of new cars they recommend for students who may be considering their MPG as well as their GPA.

Criteria for selection included earning high grades in not only fuel economy, but also safety, style, versatility, and of course, value. Each of the new-car recommendations start below $20,000, with a few even available for less than $15,000.
