Best Used Cars for Teenagers

The time has come: Your teenager is ready to hit the road on their own. While you wish you could be with them forever, at some point you need to let them leave the nest, so why not gift them a safe and reliable used car that allows you to worry a little less.

Our team at Century Automotive has put together this list of some of the best used cars for teenagers, so you know what models to search for. Parents in Huntsville, Florence, and Cullman should read on to learn more about these five vehicles and the comforts they provide. If you have any questions, reach out to a member of our sales team today.

BMW 5 Series: An Efficient Sedan

If your teen is constantly on the move, running from class to football practice, you'll want to get them behind the wheel of a fuel-efficient vehicle, so they don't have to worry about making frequent gas station stops. In addition to premium interior comforts designed to keep your child relaxed as they cruise to all their afterschool activities, the BMW 5 Series boasts an impressive fuel economy designed to keep them away from the pump longer.

Volvo XC90: A Configurable Interior

Your teen's busy lifestyle needs a vehicle to match, and the Volvo XC90 is a great option thanks to its customizable interior. When the rear seats are up, your new driver will have room to bring four friends to the mall or the movies. But, if they need space for their sports gear, fold part of the rear seat down or completely flat to meet all their cargo needs.  

Land Rover Discovery Sport: An Ultra-Secure SUV

Nothing's more important than protecting your children, so you're probably looking for a bold SUV packed with supreme safety features. Land Rover models are designed to tackle extreme conditions, making this rugged vehicle an ideal ride for your teen. Armed with various features like Terrain Response®, which allows you to choose the amount of traction and control needed to tackle various weather conditions and 4-wheel drive to optimize road grip around turns or through rain, the Land Rover Discovery Sport will keep your child in command of the ride at all times.

Jaguar F-PACE: Park with Confidence and Ease

Parallel parking is one of the trickier things to learn as a new driver. Fortunately, some used Jaguar F-PACE models come equipped with parking sensors in the front and rear to alert your new driver when they're too close to another vehicle when backing in or out of a tight space. Other amenities like steering wheel mounted audio controls ensure your teenager stays alerted to the ever-changing road by minimizing look-away time.

Porsche Cayenne: Extra Peace of Mind

Porsche is known for creating an exciting and dynamic ride, but the 5-seater Cayenne also comes with all-wheel drive to safely take your novice driver around to all their after-school clubs and summer activities. This vehicle also has the Active Lane Keep feature which will help your teenager stay in the middle of their lane.
