Ford Fusion I4 S

Starting car price: $19,850

Fuel economy: 23 city and 33 highway mpg

The Fusion is another IIHS Top Safety Pick. This midsize sedan has dual front air bags, front-seat side air bags, and side air curtains in the first and second rows. In addition, all models come with electronic stability control and a four-wheel, disc antilock brakes.

The Fusion also has Ford's MyKey system, which is designed so parents can program speed and audio controls for the vehicle. The entire Fusion line has 10 colors to choose from. Teen drivers might try to convince parents to spring for Red Candy or Steel Blue for their first car.
