2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS

  • Price: $20,995
  • Gas mileage: 24 mpg city/35 mpg highway

Rated a "large" car by the EPA, Sonata provides some extra bulk that may help keep your teen safe in a crash, making it one of our choices as one of the best cars for teenagers. Moreover, a grocery list of standard features belies its remarkably affordable price.

Sonata's 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine develops the most horsepower on this list: 198. A driver-shiftable six-speed automatic transmission ushers power to the front wheels.

Your teenager may feel like he's driving around in Mom's errand-runner, but he'll warm up to such features as Bluetooth connectivity and a six-speaker audio system with iPod interface and satellite radio.

Also standard are a trip computer and heated outboard mirrors.
