Best Cars for Teenagers
Is there a perfect first car for teens? Deciding on the best car for teenage drivers depends on who is doing the deciding — the teen or their parents.
Teenagers and their parents tend to have different objectives and priorities when it comes to cars, although it's often not difficult for the two parties to come to a mutually agreeable decision, especially when each party is willing to compromise a little. In this article, we'll try to look at the subject of first cars from both points of view.
What Teens Want
Most teenagers place considerable importance on a car's style (sporty), appearance (cool), performance (fast), size (room for friends), and accessories (customization). Girls also like "cute" cars.
An automobile is a projection of a teen's personality, sense of freedom, and desire for peer approval — as well as possibly serving a practical need for getting back and forth to school and job.
What Parents Want
Parents want safe cars for their teens. Parents also place importance on economy (low purchase cost, low operation cost, and low maintenance cost), reliability/dependability, and low insurance cost.
Teens who are expected to pay their own way may also place importance on many of these factors.
Cost is a Factor
The first issue that most young drivers and their parents usually struggle with when deciding on a first car is that of cost, which typically leads to the issue of used-versus-new.
