for our latest episode of window shop with us, we're honoring the state of georgia, which announced last week that road tests were no longer a requirement to get a driver's license. so with teen drivers being a hot topic of conversation these days, we set out to find the best cars for new teenage drivers for under $10,000.
we were split on whether you should buy a boring, safe vehicle for your teen or something more exciting to make sure they start off their driving careers as a car enthusiast. some editors went the more practical route and found safe choices such as a 2019 hyundai elantra and a late-model mitsubishi outlander sport. others went for fun and found desirable rides such as a 1980s mazda rx-7 and a rare manual-transmission mercedes-benz slk. check out the video to see our top choices for new drivers.
