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.
