Best Car for Teens Award: Volkswagen Jetta
The Volkswagen Jetta, which has captured this 2019 Best New Car for Teens award, brings a lot to the table. To be awarded, a car must have the best combination of reliability ratings, crash test scores, available driver-assistance features, and recommendations in the U.S. News Best Cars rankings in the price category.
Now in its seventh generation, the latest Volkswagen Jetta brings together technology, style, and value. The VW Jetta performs well with high crash test scores, but also comes with a full suite of driver- assistance features, like Forward Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Monitor, and Lane Departure Warning.
These features can prevent new drivers from getting into accidents, with forward collision warning letting you know if you’re too close to the car in front of you, and blind spot functionality letting you know if it’s safe to change lanes.

Volkswagen Jetta Safety & Performance
The boldly designed Volkswagen Jetta 7th-generation model hit the market in 2018 as a 2019 model. It comes with a 1.4L turbocharged and direct-injection engine that delivers 147 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. It can be mated to either a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission. If you want your teenager to learn how to drive a stick shift, this can be the car to do it in.
Volkswagen Car-Net® Security & Service, which is an available feature on SEL and SEL Premium trims, lets owners access the VW Jetta remotely online or with a smartphone app.
This feature includes a speed alert, which notifies the vehicle owner when a pre-determined maximum speed has been hit, and if the car has traveled outside a pre-set virtual boundary. Even if you’re not in the car with your teenager, you’ll be able to track their driving and deliver those teachable moments.
