Buying a Car for Your Young Driver

Did you know that U.S. News & World Report has a whole section on recommended vehicles?  They have lists by style, by brand, by cost, ones for families, new vehicles, used vehicles…  For parents with young drivers, we thought the 2019 list of best cars for teens might be of interest.

There is a reason young drivers are expensive to insure.  According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, drivers age 16 to 19 have a higher risk of being in an accident than any other age group and are almost three times more likely to be in a fatal crash.  We all want to protect them as best we can and finding a safe, affordable vehicle is a good start.

Below is a list of their recommendations, but you can find more details on their website at: https://cars.usnews.com/cars-trucks/best-cars-for-teens
