The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and Consumer Reports put out a list of 18 2020 cars that are the safest new cars for teens. Five of the cars on this list are Mazda cars, beating out Honda and Subaru who only have three each. This gives us at Chico Mazda an excellent excuse to explain why Mazda cars are excellent starter vehicles for teen drivers.

What Are Important Factors to Consider for a Teen Driver?

Sports cars and lightweight cars won't perform as well in crashes, but full-size SUVs are difficult to maneuver around Artois, CA and have a longer braking distance. What you want is something small, but durable, and you especially want to look for cars that achieved a Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS. You'll also want a car that will last long enough for your teen to be able to afford their next one.

What Make Mazda Cars Ideal for New Redding, CA Drivers?

Many Mazda vehicles fit in that ideal range of sedan to crossover, and IIHS has given Mazda with several Top Safety Pick+ awards, including the 2020 Mazda CX-3, Mazda CX-5 and Mazda3. Mazda models use i-ACTIVSENSE® technologies to provide a safer ride with features like Adaptive Front-Lighting System, Lane Departure Warning System, Mazda Radar Cruise Control and Rear Vehicle Monitoring System.
