2018 Toyota Corolla

Teenagers need a car that will be safe for newer drivers. They also need one that can be operated on a budget, since most will not have any income. Of course, teens want a car that has personality and today's leading dash tech. There are many choices, but only a few offer cutting-edge safety tech and excellent fuel economy at affordable prices. Many of those cars are available now from Toyota.

Yaris iA Sedan

The Yaris iA sedan is less well-known than the Yaris hatchback, but it has a similar sporty attitude. Parents will like its affordable price. They will primarily like its standard low-speed pre-collision safety system. During city driving, the car may slow itself to avoid hitting another vehicle or a pedestrian. Teens will love the roomy cabin. Its premium amenities include a full dash tech system. A voice recognition system makes it safer to use. Among its secure apps, you will find Aha™, Stitcher™, and Pandora®. Young drivers will especially like the car's agile moves and high-spirited 1.5-liter engine. This car earns 32 mpg* city / 39 mpg* on the highway.

Corolla iM Hatchback

Another stand-out for teens in the Toyota pack, the 2018 Corolla iM Hatchback has its premium-feel interior. Like the Yaris iA, Toyota offers it in one basic package, meaning you won't have to haggle to get all of the features that your teenager wants, which includes a Pioneer audio display system with streaming audio. HD radio and Aha are on board. Young drivers will like how the sophisticated chassis responds to their handling cues. They can start out with a manual or utilize the Corolla iM advanced CVTi-S automatic transmission with 7-Step Shifting. Fuel economy is 28 mpg city and 36 mpg highway. Parents will like the fact that this car comes with a lane departure alert. Drivers will hear a signal if the Corolla iM strays from the lane lines. A pre-collision system helps reduce the chances of an accident or, at least, minimize impact. Automatic high beams can overcome the difficulty of driving at night, keeping the teen from stressing out. A rearview camera shows the way during reverse maneuvers. Teens will like the exterior style with its piano black grille treatment. Colors include metallics in Barcelona Red and Spring Green Metallic. Another colorful favorite is Electric Storm Blue. The standard aero body kit makes this car especially sporty.

Prius Hybrid

The Prius has earned its spot in history as the best-selling hybrid of its time. JD Power and Associates placed it tops in its class for dependability. Going forward, this is one car that parents can count on to keep its value and to earn its keep. Students on a budget can make their money go much further with affordable gas mileage, and, in this case, fuel economy is a record-setting 54 mpg city and 50 mpg highway. Parents can choose the basic Two edition, and their teens will have everything they need to stay entertained and to make safer choices. For entertainment, it has the Entune audio system. For safety, it has a lane departure alert with an assist and a forward collision alert with an assist. A pedestrian watch and adaptive cruise control are part of the standard package. For curb appeal, there are some fun colors like blue crush metallic and hypersonic red.
