With the kids heading back to school, you may be thinking about putting some of your older ones on wheels. But what are the best cars for a teen driver?
Coming up with the right model can be a challenge, but there are some important factors to keep in mind, safety first and foremost. So, while your teen might have a BMW M3, Ford Mustang or Volkswagen Golf R high on their list, you're likely to look for something a bit more practical.
And affordable. You don't want to strain your household budget or stretch the thin wallet of a teen heading off to college. And affordability involves more than just the up-front price. You also have to consider fuel and insurance costs. Teens typically get socked with hefty premiums, though you can bring that down with the right car.
