10 Best Cars for Teenage Drivers

With school out for your summer, we may see more and more teenage drivers out on the roads in Ann Arbor, Michigan. For many reasons, teenage drivers tend to be more accident prone compared to their older counterparts. We have identified the 10 best cars to help your teenager, along with other drivers, safe:

  1. Chevrolet Sonic: The Chevrolet Sonic is one of the safest cars out there. It is equipped with collision warning and lane departure and scored remarkably well on crash tests.

  2. Honda Fit: If your teenager needs a car with a lot of space for equipment and school supplies, but won’t break the bank, we recommend the Honda Fit. This car is equipped with the blind spot monitor and excellent crash test scores.

  3. Kia Soul: If your teenage driver is conscientious and focused, the thought of them behind the wheel can still cause your heart to race a little bit faster. The Kia Soul is linked with the UVO system, which can inform you of when your son or daughter drives outside a preset geographical area, go faster than the speed limit, drives after curfew, or practices any other dangerous driving habits.

  4. Mazda3: The Mazda3 has both excellent cargo space and fuel economy, along with it being incredibly safe. It excels in crash tests and tons of safety features, including blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, low-speed automatic braking, rear cross traffic alert, and parking sensors.

  5. Honda Civic: Like the other cars on this list, it is equipped with a wide array of safety features. It is also Top Safety Pick+ award from IIHS.

  6. Hyundai Sonata: This car is equipped with a system similar to the UVO system. It lets you know of when your son or daughter drives outside a preset geographical area, go faster than the speed limit, drives after curfew, or practices any other dangerous driving habits.

  7. Chevrolet Malibu: This Chevrolet is equipped with the latest in teen technology called Teen Driver. This type of technology encourages teen drivers to adopt safe driving habits, such as a muted radio until seat belts are on or a warning for exceeding the speed limit.

  8. Ford Fusion Hybrid: This car is not only safe, but it also has excellent gas mileage. It is equipped with the latest in driver-assistance features and technology, similar to Teen Driver, that encourages safe driving habits.

  9. Kia Optima: Like the other cars on the list, technology is what makes the Kia Optima stand out from other options for your teenage driver. Like the Kia Soul, it is equipped with the UVO system.

  10. Nissan Murano: This vehicle offers the best of both worlds. It is big enough to drive your entire family, while still possessing an array of driver-assistance programs suitable for your teen driver.
