Consumer Reports picks Best Cars for Teens and Seniors

 

Honda Accord is the right fit for the young, old, tall and small

Consumer ReportsYonkers, NY — With the fall semester just around the corner, Consumer Reports offers its best choices for parents and teens out shopping for a car to bring back to school.

When looking for the right car for teens, including used models, Consumer Reports recommends picking cars with safety features such as electronic stability control and curtain air bags and good crash-test results.

“Often parents think that putting their child in the biggest car is the safest thing they can do, but that’s not so. Teens are the most inexperienced drivers on the road, so you want to make sure they’re driving something that handles well, is agile and has as many safety features as possible—especially electronic stability control,” said David Champion, senior director of Consumer Reports Automotive Test Center in East Haddam, Connecticut.
