    The 2011 Hyundai Elantra is also a good car for teens. It gets great fuel economy and is not a speed demon to help regulate teen drivers. http://hyundai.com

    "Data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety suggests that the newer safety systems do a better job of protecting drivers if they get in an accident. From 2013 to 2014, in certain Honda Crosstours and Accords that have forward collision and lane departure warnings, there was a 12 percent reduction in the frequency of claims for property damage liability, a 27 percent reduction in bodily injury liability, and a 22 percent reduction in medical payments compared with cars that lacked the equipment but were otherwise the same."
