Get Your Teen an Auto with the Best Value for Money

When looking for a car for a first-time driver, you have to consider three factors. The first is the vehicle’s safety features. Since new drivers need to familiarize themselves first with the nuances of driving, the car must rate high in safety tests to protect their lives and limbs.

The second factor is performance. This is especially important for parents gifting their children with their first cars. Since parents want their kids to be as comfortable as possible while driving, they want a car with a good performance record.

The third factor is fuel efficiency. Getting a car that has a great fuel economy is obviously better than one that consumes a lot of gas.

If you are looking for a car for a first-time driver, this list could help you decide on the best auto to buy:

  • Ford Fiesta

The Ford Fiesta is a favorite among parents getting their kids their first car because it packs a lot of safety features. It has a MyKey system, which allows parents to restrict the maximum speed of the car as well as the stereo volume when their teen is behind the wheel. It also has a seatbelt reminder and seven airbags, with an optional auto brake. The diesel model also boasts of the lowest fuel consumption. 

  • 2012 Toyota RAV4

The RAV4 may not be a new model, but if you’re looking to purchase a secondhand vehicle for your teen, this is a good choice. This model was one of the first to introduce an optional third row. It also has a spacious interior and a host of outstanding standard features. It also has a high predicted reliability score as a testament to its superb performance. 

  • 2016 Hyundai Tucson

This car was awarded the 2016 Best Compact SUV for the Money, both for the brand-new and used versions. It has excellent scores on predicted reliability, safety, and total cost of ownership, a spacious interior, and a great entertainment setup to boot.

  • 2017 Kia Soul

This car can be categorized as a compact, an SUV, or a crossover because of its sleek and stylish design. Its external and standard features reflect the value for money you’ll get. This model performed well on safety tests and also ranked high on predicted reliability.
