If you're a sixteen-year-old, you've probably been counting down the days until you can take your road test for months. If you're the parent of a sixteen-year-old, however, you probably have an entirely different outlook on the milestone. Let's face it, as much as we trust in our kids, driving is dangerous stuff, and we're going to worry about them no matter what.
What can you do to feel a little more self-assured every time your teen heads out for school or practice? Knowing that they are behind the wheel of a car that has earned a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is definitely a start.

Fuel efficiency and price are also among the most important factors when finding the ideal vehicle for a young driver, and the Kia Soul clearly performed well on both of those fronts, as well.
