Best Cars for Teens has always been a popular article on this site, and in the latest revision, I've made some big changes: Five of the ten cars on the list are new.
That got me to thinking about how much the scene has changed. Just a few short years ago, cars with electronic stability control (ESC) were rare; in fact, the Subaru Impreza was a staple on the list because it was the only car that had ESC and all wheel drive, making it virtually impossible to make the car not go where you pointed it. Today, ESC is manditory and there are cars on the list with ten airbags. (The Impreza is still there, by the way.) Say all you want about the evils of legislation, but I'm glad to see that cars are getting safer.
Okay, enough throat-clearing -- check out my updated list of the Ten Best Cars for Teens. -- Aaron Gold
