Why Subaru Is the Best Car Model for First-Time Drivers

When it comes to finding a car for a new, first-time driver, there are not a lot of options that meet everyone's criteria. Parents-you want a car for your new driver that doesn't make you overspend on gas money. You also want something that's safe and reliable. New driver-you want something that looks good and has plenty of room for all of your friends. Everyone can agree that affordability is key too-so, what's the best car model for first-time drivers? Subaru, of course.

3 Reasons Why Subaru Is the Best Car Model for First-Time Drivers

As Subaru experts, we think Subaru's make the most sense for first-time drivers because they meet all of the criteria parents and first-time drivers want. Subaru models are:

1. Fuel-efficient

When you have a first-time driver that loves to go, you'll be looking to cut down on gas costs at every turn. All of Subaru's top models are great in terms of fuel efficiency with the new Subaru Impreza earning up to 38 highway miles per gallon.

2. Reliable

Subaru is one of the most reliable cars on the road. Parents worried about first-time drivers can rest easy when they put their child in a Subaru model as it's a leading choice among parents with teen drivers. In 2017, the Subaru Outback, Crosstrek, Forester, and Legacy were each awarded a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

3. Cost-effective

Most Subaru models are cost-effective, with the exception of the Subaru BRZ and the Subaru WRX. As the brand's known sports car makes, these can get pricey (and they're a lot faster than a new driver can handle!). Some cost-effective Subaru models include the Subaru Forester, the Subaru Impreza, or the Subaru Crosstrek.

When you choose Subaru, you know your first-time driver will be in good hands behind the wheel. And, they won't complain either. Subaru models-no matter the year-might just be one of the best looking cars on the road (and, no, we're not even a little biased!).
