There are quite a few best-selling small cars and medium-sized used sedans to pick from. The best cars in this category have always been the Toyota Camry, Corolla, and the Honda Accord, but we chose the Civic because it’s a sublime car whether you buy new or used, and it’s interesting.
The Honda Civic is here for all the right reasons, including stellar safety ratings, good fuel economy, a spacious interior for friends, and favorable reviews from various consumer reports.
The same is also true of the other sedans mentioned here, but there are other factors to consider when searching for the top cars for teens.
Teens want to be cool, and a Corolla just isn’t. Older generations of the Corolla are just generic older vehicles with zero style and loads of substance. At least with a Civic hatch or sedan, you get a sharp-ish design. We’re not saying a Civic is as cool as a modern compact SUV, but it’s a big step up from the humdrum Corolla.
If your child isn’t the least bit interested in cars and only sees it as a device to get from point A to point B, you can buy any of the sedans mentioned here.
