We stumbled upon some interesting information today from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety which conducted a study that revealed that many parents do not buy cars with the best safety equipment and crash protection when shopping for their teens. So, to lend all of the moms and dads a helping hand the research company has given us a list of the safest used car options for teens and we are very proud to say that three Chevrolet models were recommended!
It can be unsettling to learn that vehicular collisions are the leading cause of death for teenagers, especially alarming since South Dakota is among the highest in reported fatal motor vehicle crashes, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t let your young driver get behind the wheel. Instead, along with teaching your kids safe driving habits early on, you should make sure you purchase the right vehicle.
The Chevrolet vehicles that fell in the “Best Choices” (under $20K) category, which mean they have
earned top scores in all of the IIHS’ crash tests and at least four out of five stars in crash tests performed by the federal government. Having standard Electronic Stability Control was also a key factor in earning spots on the list because the technology helps drivers keep control on curves and slick roads.
There isn’t a parent out there who wants to put a price on the safety of their young drivers and passengers. When teens graduate to the drivers seat the Malibu, Equinox and Traverse models recommended by the IIHS are affordable and offer parents the safety features they want and need.
