So, your teenager is just about licensed. And they've never been happier. But you're nervous, to say the least, right? Plus, you know it means one of two things: you'll be giving them the keys to your car, or you'll be shopping for an affordable new or used car. We're willing to bet that your teen will be begging for their own car - or a car to share with their siblings. As such, we'd love to help you weed through all of the options and find the kind of car that is perfectly tailored to younger drivers.
Of course, you'll want something safe, fuel-efficient, and reliable. They probably want a car that looks cool and is filled with all of the latest features and technology. Well, you're in luck, because VroomGirls.com recently compiled a list of some of the best cars for teens - vehicles that will make everybody in your house happy. And of course, there was a Kia on the list!
We weren't particularly surprised to see the 2012 Kia Rio on the list - we've been touting the value of this fuel-efficient small car for a while now. Editors say, "Witness Kia's latest design, the subcompact Rio, which scores high grades for its contemporary styling, easy-to-use dashboard, and excellent gas mileage."1 They go on to remark on its impressively-equipped starting price ($14,150) and 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
More specifically, the Kio Rio boasts up to 40 miles to the gallon, USB-compatible stereo system, steering wheel controls, and available navigation. It's safe too, with stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes, and a cabin full of airbags (front-seat side and side curtain) and hill start assist.

We're conveniently located at 4201 Chambers Hill Rd Harrisburg, PA 17111, and a member of our team is always happy to answer any of your questions, arrange test drives, and discuss all of the financing options available for you and your teen.
