When teenagers get to a certain age, one rite of passage that they look forward to is being able to drive. Not only is it the most exciting time in their lives, but also it’s about the type of car that they can get. Teens don’t want to be seen in a struggle buggy, but they do want to be grateful whatever their parents are able to give them. If they have a part-time job that they work after school it might be wise to chip in a few bucks so that they can drive something nicer. Otherwise, their parents will have to find a car that safe and reliable for them to drive that’s not going to give them a lot of problems. There are so many different makes and models, they will have to sit down and see what’s in the budget and figure how to get them their first car. If it’s possible to pay straight cash without doing a monthly payment, then that is what will go for. So what are the top five cars to look at?
The Toyota Corolla is the most popular choice among parents because it’s just right in terms of size and dependability. It is considered the most lasting vehicle on the road. That means parents don’t have to pay a lot out of pocket and buy it new unless they choose to. Also, if they do buy it new, their teenager will have this car forever and possibly end up passing down to their own teenager. Basically, you are getting a car that will last for generations to come.
This car is one with length and plenty of space. Any teenager that drives one knows it makes it easy when trying to back out of a parking space. A tall teen would benefit from having this car because of space and legroom. Plus, it will make them pay attention because they need to know how much space to put between them and the next vehicle when backing out of a parking lot. There are other great sedans that offer the same space, but the Chevrolet Impala offers a more luxurious look that a teenager would appreciate.
If parents are wanting to gradually get their teenager used to driving an SUV, then the Nisan rouge offers a crossover that will give them that comfortable feel to it. Once they get used to the size and width of being in a huge vehicle, then they can make a smooth transition on over. Driving an SUV does come with its dangers, especially if too sharp of a turn is made at the corner or if the driver loses control on the freeway. So there is plenty of time to practice.
Not only is this car practical and simple to drive, which is a huge plus, but parents are going to love the price tag. A brand new is well under $15,000. So one could definitely find a used one and just pay cash for it. It’s a nice four door that offers some room, and it’s a decent vehicle that they would love to drive, especially if it’s a girl.
This is the car that grows up with the family just like a Toyota, except it cost less and is practical. There are no fancy features in it other than the standard stuff that comes in most vehicles. However, parents will love the fact that it does comes with plenty of impressive safety feature. This one would truly be considered a starter vehicle.
These five cars offer their own experiences as to why they should be chosen as the first car. Parents will be satisfied with these selections. Teens everywhere will be very grateful to have anyone of them.
