1. Scion tC
Impressively, three of Scion’s models made it on the list of top ten cars for teens with the tC topping the chart. It’s a little more expensive than the rest of the cars on the list with a starting MSRP of $19,305 for a manual but offers plenty of fun thanks to the 2.5-liter, four-cylinder with 180-hp and 173 lb-ft of torque. It’s also a very attractive and sporty car while still getting 23-mpg city and 31-mpg highway.
The most surprising part of this list is the complete lack of an American automaker. Japanese and Korean automakers are apparently doing a great job building vehicles for teenagers, at least ones that parents feel safe to purchase for their kids.
