Best Cars For Teens - We have compiled a great list of the best cars for teens. Parents have the tough decision to put their teens behind the wheel and there are so many cars to choose from. A vehicle can expand a student’s educational horizons, allowing them to take advantage of opportunities like off-site classes and internships.
Here are the best picks.
Ford Fiesta - It comes with a long list of standard safety equipment. You will also like the low price and outstanding fuel economy. Other parent-friendly features include SYNC, which allows voice control of cell phones and iPods and helps keep young drivers’ attention focused on the road, not their portable gadgets.
Honda Insight - Take it so and easy. The Insight’s video-game-like dash. It’s designed to coach drivers into getting better fuel economy — the Insight is, after all, a hybrid — but it also reinforces good habits for young and inexperienced drivers.
Kia Forte - Young folks will like the style, space and spunk, but it’s also safe bet. It comes with six airbags, antilock brakes and electronic stability control all standard, and an IIHS Top Safety Pick award to show for it. Good visibility, simple controls and clearly-marked instruments make it a great match for inexperienced drivers.
Kia Soul - The Soul’s box-car body provides lots of back-seat space and a cargo bay that’s well suited to bulky cargo. Like the Forte, the Soul comes with a full complement of safety equipment and an IIHS Top Safety Pick award. The Soul is offered with both 1.6 and 2.0 liter engines; both are good, but I’d probably stick with the 2-liter, if only to make highway merges a little less dramatic.
