10 Best Cars for Teenage Drivers

Waving your teenager off as they drive away for the first time can be nerve wracking. However, watching your teenager drive away can be less stressful, if you know they are in a safe and reliable vehicle. When looking for your son or daughter's first car, we recommend keeping an eye out for a few certain features.

Cars equipped with safety features, such as blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, low-speed automatic braking, rear cross traffic alert, and parking sensors, provide an extra set of eyes for your teen driver. When you aren’t there to watch over them, these safety features will step in for you. If your son or daughter is heading off to college in the fall, you especially won’t be able to sit shotgun, reminding that they are too close to the car in front of them or to check their blindspot. If the car is equipped with safety features, you can rest easy, knowing your teen’s car will do it in your place.

Technology plays a huge factor in the safety of your teen’s car, and vehicles equipped with the latest in technology often have the highest rankings on safety and crash test results. There are several programs, such as UVO, that monitor your son or daughter’s driving habits and will alert you if they are driving too fast, outside of a preset geographical range, or too late at night. Another form of technology installed in newer vehicles actually instills positive driving habits. The radio will be muted until are seat belts are on, and you will hear a warning if you are driving recklessly, like speeding.
