How to Find the Best Vehicle for a Young Driver

Finally allowing your teen to drive on his or her own can be a nail-biting experience. It’s not that they are incompetent but you can’t control all of the other drivers out there.

One thing that you can do to help is to get them a great car, one that has all of the important features to keep them safe and sound. The best vehicle for a young driver should have the following features.

Mild Horsepower

A lot of horsepower may tempt your teen to test the limits of the vehicle. On the other hand, healthy acceleration is actually essential to safety. In those rare times you need it, it should be there.

No Minicars

Just as you would imagine, cars that are extremely small simply do not perform as well as their larger counter parts.

Safety Ratings

By far the most important feature is safety. Both the IIHS and NHTSA test all of the vehicles on the market. You should look for top-scoring vehicles. In fact, the IIHS compiles a list of the Best Used Vehicle Choices for Teens every year. Check it out here!
