You know teenagers, they always want to show themselves that they are grown up, and the best way to express it is to have their owned car. But which cars suited them the most?

As a parent, whether you like it or not, you have to advise your kids to choose a car because it’s their reasonable need. You know that teens like something with a big engine, a cool exterior, and fast. However, we can’t pamper and put them in danger. Besides, those cars cost a huge amount of money. Before deciding which cars to buy, you will have to go through a lot of criteria like models, price, safety, etc to choose a suitable one. So, it means that not every car is appropriate. Don’t worry, we are here to help you with a list of 5 cars that we believe they are the best choices for your kids.

It takes a lot of consideration to choose a suitable car for teens

1. Suzuki Maruti Alto 800

If you are looking for a cheap but functional car, then the Alto 800 is a good choice. It is the car that most families choose. We can say that Maruti Alto 800 is one of the best-selling cars in India. This car has 3 cylinders, 796 CC displacement which means this car is not too fast or slow. The engineer had also upgraded the pistons to lower the friction and the fuel consumption by 9%. The innovated brake system also supports the drivers in a safer way. The interior is basic but large enough to make you feel comfortable. We would recommend you buying the (O) variant which has an airbag to protect the driver in case of accidents. This car’s price is also very competitive, ranging from 2.51 to 3.78 Lakh based on the model.

2. Tata Tiago

Tata Motors has done a very good job of releasing this particular car to the market. First, the price is so competitive. With 3.35 to 6 Lakh, you can own a car that has a good interior as well as the powerful engine. This car has a 6-level manual transmission and 3 cylinders. With the support of turbocharger, it can power the car up to 110 horsepower at 5.000 RPM. Even so, this car doesn’t consume so much fuel. Like the Maruti Alto 800, Tata Tiago is very spacious inside. Plus, the shoulder room in the rear can let you relax your feet. That’s a great point of this car at that price.

The Germans know what they were doing when releasing Volkswagen Polo. Although their reputation has been damaged by the contamination scandal, this car somehow still stands firmly throughout the storm.

The power of this car is the main point, it can clearly deliver with just 1.000 RPM. The position of the brake and gas pedals also make it comfortable to use despite the weird seats. This car also contains airbags that will protect your kids if accidents happen. The price makes this car worthy too, just 5.42 to 9.69 Lakh and you will have this mechanical masterpiece.
