Did you know that what your teen drives also affects how they drive? Of all the worry-less things you can do before sending your teen out on the road, choosing the safest car possible may be the single most important.

Not only do they hold up better in a crash than smaller cars, but their longer wheelbases and stable handling are more forgiving when young drivers make mistakes. Some experts recommend a minimum weight of 3,300 pounds, which eliminates compacts and most small cars.
