U.S. News & World Report unveiled the Best Cars for Teens.

"The winners of the Best Cars for Teens awards all have active safety features that can help teens safely develop their driving skills while lowering the risk that they'll be involved in a collision," said Jamie Page Deaton, executive editor of U.S. News Best Cars. "The winners also have strong crash test ratings, so if a collision occurs, there's a better chance of occupants being protected."

 

Hyundai won the most awards in the Best New Cars for Teens categories, with three. Across the eight new-car categories, five of the winners are hybrids, which should appeal to climate- and budget-conscious teens.

 

In the used car categories, Toyota won four of the five awards.

 

All 2021 Best New Cars for Teens are available with forward collision warning and forward automatic emergency braking, as well as lane departure warning and lane keep assist.

 

All winners also have teen driver controls or available smartphone apps that send parents alerts when the car goes over a set speed or is driven outside a set geographic area or time period. These features allow parents to set limits for teen drivers and have an ongoing conversation with their teens about responsible driving habits.
