(New York Daily News) – Buying a car for your teenage driver can be a bit of an overwhelming experience. There are a myriad of options in the used car market, and it’s difficult to tell which options are safe, reliable, and suitable for a new driver, not to mention within a very specific budget.

To save parents a bit of the hassle, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has come up with a list of their top safety picks in the used car market for a variety of budgets. The organization compiled crash safety rating data, as well as available or standard safety features, and used data from Kelley Blue Book to obtain pricing information.

The list is broken down into vehicle categories, including large and midsize cars, small and midsize SUVs, and minivans. Some notable picks include the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Ford Taurus, Toyota Highlander, and Honda CR-V.

The IIHS found that many teens are driving older small or subcompact cars that are cheap to buy and maintain but do not offer sufficient crash protection. This has become an issue in recent years, because teenagers killed in crashes are more likely to have been behind the wheel of these vehicles than adults.
