A recent study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that 83% of cars bought by parents for teenagers were pre-owned. For this reason, the association compiled a list of their top safety picks for used vehicles for young drivers. IIHS President Adrian Lund President says, "[These] used vehicles can help consumers factor in safety, in addition to affordability."
To make the cut, each of the vehicles listed below had to receive an overall four or five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. They were also required to have a “Good” score for the moderate overlap front test from the IIHS.
