Safety features draw many car shoppers to specific models. When buying a vehicle for a teenager, high safety ratings are vital. New drivers, especially young ones, don't have the luxury of 10 years of driving experience. So, high ratings for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for roof and side strength mean a lot.

And look carefully at a particular vehicle's safety features. Airbags and anti-lock brakes help, and so does electronic stability control. If the roads become slippery, this feature can lend an assist. Read up on how the safety features worked on the road tests to be sure.

Bulkier vehicles may be better choices as their frames provide more crash protection. Stay away from models with high amounts of horsepower, though. You don't want the teen to "test out" the power.

You will want to take a car, truck, or SUV out on the road for a test drive. The team at Braddock Motors will help you do so.
