These are the best cars to buy your teen in 2022

The organizations put forward several excellent choices, but we’re going to focus mainly on vehicles that have received recommendations in both the new and used categories. Unsurprisingly, the list includes countless Subaru, Honda, and Mazda models. Both the new and old Legacy and Outback models are covered and frankly we are not surprised.

Subaru has an excellent reputation for reliability and its track record of safety is something to brag about. Mazda also did well, with the now-discontinued CX-3, 3 (hatch and sedan), CX-30 and CX-5 all getting a spot on the list. Naturally, Honda is well represented, with the Odyssey being the only new minivan featured. The CR-V is endorsed as both a great new and used purchase.

There are plenty of “best” second-hand choices to choose from. Sensible vehicles like the 2014-15 Ford C-Max Hybrid make an appearance, but the IIHS and CR also recommend more interesting vehicles like the 2016-19 Audi A6 and the 2016 BMW 3 Series sedan – the latter just gets a “good” rating well.
