Cars for First Time Drivers

You probably wouldn’t let a novice driver—perhaps your freshly licensed teenager—take out the Mercedes or BMW for the night out with some friends. Unless your kid showed some serious car driving prodigy potential, there are plenty of other vehicle options for first-time drivers. What makes a good first car? Teenagers will focus on the look of the car (obviously) with an emphasis of style, color and cool factor—throw in a decent sound system with some electronics to dock their smart phone and their set. Parents however, look past the look of the car (obviously) and focus on miles per gallon, safety, and price. Here are some cars that both parties can agree on.  

The Ford Fiesta is an extremely popular first purchase for plenty of reasons. As the first ‘minicar’ named Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in America, parents can be at ease that this car will get their teen drivers safely from point A to point B. Loaded with cool tech for the modern young driver, the Fiesta is a great pick.

Fiat’s Grande Punto is also a great option for new drivers. Not only is the vehicle a steal, paying for a good sized vehicle equipped with a powerful engine, the Punto comes with safety features anyone can appreciate. And it’s cute.
