Top Cars For Teenagers

List Criteria: Vote on the car you think is a safe, affordable, practical first car for teenagers

A list of top cars for teenagers, based in part on results provided by US News, but also ranked by you, the public. What are the best first cars for teenagers? This list of good first cars will help you feel better about sending your kid off into the world. All types of cars have been included.
 
Parents and teenagers may often differ on car choices, but with so many vehicle makes and models available, a compromise can be found. What are the best first cars for teens? Teenagers are new to driving, so they're also at a higher risk for automotive incidents (aka crashing). Teenagers are also known for not having much money as well as moving to and from school. With that in mind, safety, affordability and practicality are all important. The automobiles on this list balance all three criteria. If you have any suggestions please feel free to add them to the list below!

From the most popular cars for teenage drivers to more obscure (but still safe and cool) vehicles, this list should help you decide which car to shell out for when your teen finally gets their driver's license. Teenage girls and guys may differ in their first car choices, but at least you'll have some peace of mind after taking a look at these options. Check out this list of the cheapest cars to insure for more details.
