Honda Cars Deemed Great for Teen Drivers
Your first car is an important piece of your life. It will be the centerpoint of tons of memories and learning experiences, whether you realize it or not. But what many people probably don’t think about when buying a first car, is that the most important thing you can think about when putting a teenager behind the wheel, is safety. Recently, several Honda cars have been deemed great for teen drivers. Specific model year Accord, CR-V, Element, Odyssey and Pilot vehicles were rated as some of the best pre-owned vehicles for teen driver safety.
The IIHS, Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, has just recently created its very first list of used vehicles that are much safer for teen drivers. The IIHS determined that fatal vehicular collisions are the leading cause of teenage death and believe that by getting teenagers behind the wheel of more appropriate cars, this statistic might be corrected. Obviously an important feature of these vehicles has to be a relatively low price tag, so the list of vehicle includes safer choices of vehicles under $20,000.
Honda vehicles on the list include the 2012-14 Accord Sedan, 2013-14 Accord Coupe, 2012-14 CR-V, 2007-11 Element, 2011-14 Odyssey. And in a separate list of good choices under $10,000, the 2006-14 Pilot and 2005-10 Odyssey were included as well. These are some of the safest used vehicles on the road, and definitely much better choices for you teenager’s first vehicle. So if you have a young adult in your family that is about to turn 16, start looking for one of these great used Hondas to give them for their super sweet sixteen!
