Apart from buying used, the Impreza is the second more affordable choice only the list, only beaten by the Kia Soul on cost. However, it comes with standard all-wheel drive, like none of the above, and its arguably a lot more stylish than the Soul.

One of its main characteristics one should highlight is that, according to Consumer Reports, this model’s reliability is 53% above the average car sold today, so your teen is less likely to find themselves stranded needing roadside assistance. Its engine is perfectly sized; a 2-liter 4-cylinder generating 148 horsepower.
