Ford Fiesta S Sedan

Starting car price: Around $13,000

Fuel economy: 29 city and 38 highway mpg

Engine specs: 1.6-liter, four-cylinder

The Fiesta has the smallest engine in this group, but it is the most fuel efficient of all of our top 10 choices for a teen's first car. The Fiesta is also the most affordable; it has the lowest manufacturer's suggested retail car price of the group.

The 2011 Fiesta received an IIHS Top Safety Pick award in the minicar category. The vehicle's features include electronic stability control and seven standard air bags, including one for the driver's knees.

Teen drivers will love the color selection, with nine choices that range from a funky lime squeeze to a sharp tuxedo black.
