Bankrate's 7 best cars for teenagers

2013 Volkswagen Golf 2.5
2013 Volkswagen Golf 2.5
  • Price: $21,095
  • Gas mileage: 24 mpg city/31 mpg highway

Available as either a two-door or four-door hatchback, the Golf described here is the four-door with Volkswagen's convenience package. Arguably the most fun to drive on this list, its German engineering is evident after only a few minutes behind the wheel.

As priced here, it comes with a six-speed driver-shiftable automatic transmission and the convenience package that, in addition to heated front seats, includes Bluetooth connectivity.

A 170-horsepower 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine percolates under the hood.

Sadly, even with the convenience package, the eight-speaker audio system doesn't offer iPod interface; although it has an auxiliary input jack. Standard equipment does include keyless entry, trip computer and heated outboard mirrors.
