What cars are good for teen drivers?
Consumer Reports recently completed a review of cars best suited for teens in preparation for back-to-school.
When picking a car for a teen — whether new or used — Consumer Reports "recommends picking cars with safety features such as electronic stability control and curtain air bags and good crash-test results."
Here are some of Consumer Reports' top suggestions for "good models for teen drivers."
• Small sedans: Hyundai Elantra SE (2008-2010), Mazda3 (2007-), Scion xB (2008-).
• Midsized sedans: Acura TSX (2004-), Honda Accord (2008-), Kia Optima (2007-).
• Small SUVs: Honda CR-V (2005-), Nissan Rogue (2008-).
