While getting a first car is an exciting time for teens, it can be a time of worry for parents or caregivers, who want the safest and most reliable car for their teen. Choosing a larger car like an SUV will help parents and teens avoid the biggest pitfall when buying a car for a new driver, a high horsepower rating. Avoid cars with peppy acceleration in favor of safer cars that offer plenty of protection in their larger body design.

Many larger cars will also offer electronic stability control, which is excellent for helping new drivers navigate slippery roads and tight corners. You'll also want to check to see if the vehicle you're interested in has had any safety recalls.
