2018 Toyota Corolla

As a parent, when you’re choosing a car for your teenager, there are essential things that you focus on, such as budget, safety, and reliability. However, typically, the car selection process involves the input of a teenager, which is usually image-driven.

Although the considerations of a teenager are essential, there are compromises from a parent for practicality that are as important. The purchase needs to be the most practical with the best safety equipment to transport a parent’s most precious cargo.

1. Toyota Corolla

The 2018 Toyota Corolla is an excellent compromise since it allows both the parent and teenager to get what is wanted and what is needed. The Corolla is available in six models, L, LE, LE ECO, XLE, SE, and XSE. With a variety of selections, the compromise becomes easier. In each model, the 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine produces efficient gas mileage, which will help your teenager get more out of their car and spend less money at the gas pump. The Corolla comes with eight standard airbags, including driver and passenger seat-mounted airbags. It’s all part of the Advanced Airbag System to provide your teenager with the kind of safety they need. The Corolla is part of ToyotaCare, which includes a no-cost maintenance plan and 24-hour roadside assistance, giving you added assurance as a parent.

2. Toyota Prius

Since 1997, the Prius has ranked among the highest fuel-efficient cars in the U.S. and is responsible for more than 61 percent of all hybrids purchased worldwide. With an astounding 48 mpg city and 46 mpg highway, your teenager will save more than a few dollars at the gas pump. The Prius handles exceptionally responsively and provides an extremely comfortable ride. Although it’s considered to be a more sensible car, the Prius does have its enjoyable benefits for a teenager. Your teenager will merely love the refreshed sporty exterior and available eye-popping colors. With standard features such as an integrated backup camera for avoiding objects out of view, push-button starting, heated seats and mirrors, there are plenty of perks for the discriminating teenager.

3. Toyota Yaris

The 2018 Toyota Yaris is an exceptional sub-compact car. As teenagers gain more confidence on the road, they need to be able to become more independent. The Yaris is superb at helping to assist a teenager in building their confidence, while also providing safety assistance with the Lane Departure Alert (LDA). When driving at 32 mph or faster, LDA delivers an alert for a driver to navigate back into their lane if the system detects any form of deviation from clear markings on the road. Additionally, the Automatic High Beams (AHB) feature is a textbook example of the assistance a teenager needs during nighttime driving. When your teenager reaches 25 mph, AHB is designed to detect the headlights and taillights of other vehicles to automatically regulate the appropriate lighting (high beam or low beam) for improved nighttime vision.
