There’s nothing quite as frightening for parents than when their teens start to drive. Even if they pass Driver’s Ed with flying colors, complete all the requirements and follow all the rules, one thing is for sure: they are going to have a fender bender or back into something sooner than later.

So, what’s a parent to do?  Buy a tank? Or a Hummer? Thankfully, there is a very, very safe vehicle that is getting the thumbs up from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety.  The 2016 Mazda3 is now recognized as one of the “Top Safety Picks” by the respected agency. But the IIHS isn’t the only group sharing that opinion. U.S. News & World Report also put the Mazda3 on the top of its list for “Best Cars for Teens in August of 2016.

The Mazda3 ranked higher than the Honda Civic and literally every other vehicle that falls in the $25K-$35K category.  And it’s no wonder.  The mighty Mazda3 is chock full of safety features like Advanced Blind Spot Monitoring, high and low speed braking with the super cool Smart City Brake support and, of course, Radar Cruise Control.

Ok, so it’s great for your teen to drive.  But what about you?  Don’t be surprised if you find yourself borrowing the keys to your teen’s Mazda3, and for good reason. It just made the list of “Best Family Cars of 2016” created by And for all you hatchback lovers, it also won the prize for 2016’s “Best Hatchback” given by Parents® Magazine. Pretty impressive credentials!

Here’s an idea—maybe you treat yourself to a new Mazda3 and get your teen a great pre-owned Mazda with a great warranty.  Your insurances rates will certainly be lower, and it won’t hurt as much when that inevitable fender bender happens!
