U.S. News & World Report has unveiled its list of Best Used Cars for Teens.

Used car rankings are based on model categories, rather than price.

  • Large car category: 2016 Buick LaCrosse
  • Midsize car category: 2016 Toyota Camry/Camry Hybrid
  • Small car category: 2016 Toyota Prius
  • Small SUV category: 2016 Hyundai Tucson
  • Midsize SUV category: 2015 Chevy Traverse

To be named a Best Used Car for Teens, U.S. News required that a vehicle be from the 2014 through 2016 model years, as cars from earlier years don't have enough advanced driver assistance technology to be considered the best for inexperienced drivers.

Also considered were high dependability, safety ratings, ownership costs and positive reviews, as well as available tech that can help prevent crashes or lessen their severity.

The 2019 Hyundai Accent topped the list of best new cars for teenage drivers, according to U.S. News.
