Best Cars For Teen Drivers in 2019

US News and World Report recently released a list of the best cars for teen drivers in 2019. The list, comprised of cars ranging from $20,000-$40,000, is made for parents with a teen getting ready to start driving. The safety of all drivers is important, but for inexperienced drivers, such as teenagers, it’s especially important. The cars on this list made it due to their safety features, expert ratings, reliability, and crash testing. 

Alarming, But Not Surprising

Before we dive into the list, it is crucial to highlight a few things about teen driver habits. According to AAA, %57 of teen driver accidents are due to distracted driving. Additionally, a recent survey asking teen drivers about their driving habits found that 78% of respondents have texted while driving. They also found that 90% of teen drivers talk on the phone while driving. 

Trading Style And Luxury For Safety And Value

So, clearly, there is a need and reason for safety features and advanced technologies in cars that may be operated by inexperienced drivers. It also may help you save on auto insurance if you buy your teen a car with a great safety rating. The thought of something happening to your teen while driving is all the more reason to take a good look at this list. The cars may not be flashy, but I’m sure your teen will take a car over nothing.

This list is provided by US News and World Report along with Business Insider. 

They also provided a list of used cars for teen drivers, a more affordable and practical option. 

Take-Home Message

Keeping teen drivers safe is a priority for families, the state, and automakers. This list helps parents navigate the market for the safest picks in terms of actual safety, expert ratings, reliability, and value. A 2019 model may not be in the budget right now, so there is an additional list of used cars that performed well in the previously mentioned areas.
