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 ranked by you, the public. What are the best cars for teenagers? 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 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!
