5 of the Absolutely Worst Car Choices for Beginner Drivers

  1. Big SUVs

Some parents think that putting their kid into a big modern SUV is the solution for a beginner’s car problem. But, they are wrong. The only good thing about this scenario is that modern SUVs are full of safety features, which is good. All other aspects of this purchase are bad and here’s why. A big and over comfortable SUV will restrain the novice driver from experiencing different road surfaces, traffic sounds, vibrations and other sensations.

And that is an integral part of the driving experience. All the infotainment systems, TV screens and Wi-Fi connectivity are big problems since the average teenager will spend more time browsing their playlist than paying attention to the road ahead. Also, modern SUVs with their rugged looks but family sedan underpinning suggest they are capable of crossing the desert. But in fact, they cannot cope with the modest off-road trail.

These are five of the absolutely worst car choices for beginner drivers. If you are the parent of one, avoid these vehicles at all cost. Instead, look for a newer used car that is safe, dependable and economical for your new driver.
