7 safe cars your mother won't hate

Dodge Dart GT

Dodge Dart GT

  • Price: $20,995
  • Gas mileage: 23 mpg city/33 mpg highway

Not the most affordable of the picks, but close to it, the Dodge Dart GT is the first of two Dodges on this list. Mom will be happy with Dart's handsome outer wrapper, masking the aggressive 184-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine lurking within. Bankrate priced it here with the standard six-speed manual transmission. A six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic tranny is a $1,250 option.

Providing an upscale look, the GT's leather seats should impress maternal units hoping for a better life for their offspring. Upgrading to the GT model also includes an 8.4-inch color touch screen, the backup camera and dual-zone automatic climate control to keep Mom comfortable when she's riding shotgun. Ten air bags are standard in every Dart.
