600 × 450

When you're shopping for a new car for an inexperienced young driver, there's a lot to consider. You want to make sure that the model you choose is easy to maneuver, budget-friendly, high on safety features, and low on distractions. Finding the perfect vehicle might seem like a daunting task, but we're here to supply some insight regarding the best cars for new drivers.

Choosing a Body Style

Generally speaking, new drivers benefit from having a vehicle that is easy to drive. Larger vehicles tend to perform better in crash tests, but something like a truck or SUV may prove to be too unwieldy for one who is inexperienced behind the wheel. Bigger vehicles also mean more passenger capacity, which can be a distraction.

We also don't recommend sports cars for new drivers as they often encourage speeding and typically come with higher insurance premiums.
