Top three Hyundai models for teen drivers in 2019
If your teen is ready to drive in 2019 or 2020, we have good news; there are three Hyundai vehicles that have been chosen as good vehicles for teens by the U.S. News and World Report. They are the 2019 Hyundai Accent, 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe, and 2016 Hyundai Tucson. Below, we will go into detail about why these three vehicles are great choices for your teen driver.
Is the 2016 Hyundai Tucson a good choice for a teen driver?
You probably noticed that the 2016 Hyundai Tucson is the oldest model on the list. That is because it was chosen as a Best Used Car for Teen Drivers as opposed to a Best New Car for Teen Drivers. The used car category was judged on the same thing as the new cars, but also on price. The Hyundai Tucson is a great car for teen drivers because of its ample safety features such as Automatic Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection, Lane Departure Warning System, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross-traffic Alert, Lane Change Assist, Backup Warning Sensors, and a standard rearview camera.
Best new Hyundai vehicles for teen drivers
In the Best New Cars for Teen Drivers category we have both the Hyundai Accent and the Hyundai Santa Fe. The Hyundai Accent was picked for its high safety rating. Like many Hyundai vehicles, the Hyundai Accent was named a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety), which means that it achieved good ratings in crash tests. The Hyundai Santa Fe got a Top Safety Pick + rating, which is a step above that. It has the first Safe Exit Assist system for a Hyundai vehicle, which monitors traffic to warn passengers who are trying to safely exit the vehicle.
