What Vehicle Is Safest for Your Teen Driver?

Your kid just got a license. It's time to find the all-important first vehicle. You want your teen to be safe out on the road, while your teen just dreams of being behind the wheel. Which vehicle is the safest choice for your teen? Here are a few things to keep in mind.

Look for a larger, heavier vehicle. You might be thinking small and light for fuel economy. However, an analysis of insurance data found that teens crash less often in larger, heavier vehicles. Avoid vehicles with too much horsepower. You know your teen will be tempted to hit the gas and go speeding down the road. You know the potentially dangerous consequences.

Choose a vehicle with a high IIHS or NHTSA safety rating. The better the rating, the safer your teen will be. Stop by Hatfield Kia today to test drive used vehicles with the best safety ratings.
