5. 2008 Subaru Forester: $2,750
The Subaru Forester is recognized around the industry as a great, fun to drive crossover. It’s also known for being quite safe, which is likely why you’ll see it right here at number 5 on our list. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Forester a perfect rating for frontal offset and side-impact crashes and named it a top safety pick in the compact SUV class. Additionally the Forester also earned a perfect five stars in all front- and side-impact testing by NHTSA. These ratings must have been easy for the Forester to come by with its traction and stability control and active front head restraints and front-seat side airbags. All these elements help make Forester an affordable vehicle to insure a teen with.
