  • Price: $23,005
  • Fuel economy: 31 mpg

Accord was the first vehicle built by a Japanese carmaker in the U.S., and it remains one of the better-selling sedans. Among the pricier of these picks, it's classified as midsize. Despite that, its mileage is impressive.

A 185-horsepower, 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder engine drives the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission. It's packed with standard features, such as dual-zone automatic climate control, touchscreen and 4-speaker audio system with USB interface.

Your teen driver will appreciate its two 12-volt power outlets, as well as its audio system's Pandora compatibility.

The insurance institute named it a "top safety pick." For $2,000 more, forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, collision-mitigation braking and lane-departure mitigation are available.
