When your teen gets their license, it’s a time to celebrate. But it’s also a time when you’re going to, well, worry. A lot. Not just about their safety and the safety of everyone else on the road, but what it’s going to cost you!
Your new driver will want a car to begin with. You may have an old jalopy to hand down, but let’s be honest: You don’t want your kid driving an old and potentially unsafe car. In addition, it’s going to cost a bunch in insurance, maintenance and gas. Cars are expensive! Luckily, the frugal folks at Hyundai of Nicholasville found that the 2006-2014 models of used Hyundai Sonatas start at $5,450! You’ll see why the choosing a Hyundai Sonata for teen drivers is practically a no-brainer:
With the practical four-cylinder engine getting up to 27 MPG, your wallet won’t be hurting when your teen asks for gas money. It’s also one of the safest cars on the road, so your insurance won’t be taking too hard of a hit, either.
But let’s get down to what’s really important to your teen: Style. I can pretty much guarantee that whichever year Hyundai Sonata they’re gifted with, the clean lines and classic styling will be a hit. Hey, they’ll just be happy you’re not making them drive the minivan anymore!
Let’s talk about the safety of the Hyundai Sonata. The 2014 model carries a five-star rating, but the 2011 model is still holding steady at 4.5 stars! Here’s a list of the standard safety features you can find on a 2011 Hyundai Sonata, making it an easy choice for your sixteen-year-old driver:
