8/3/2020 - Consumer Reports and IIHS Team Up to Recommend Used Vehicle options for Teens
YONKERS, NY, and ARLINGTON, VA — Consumer Reports (CR) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) are teaming up for the first time to recommend safe, reliable and affordable used vehicles for teenage drivers.
In recent years, both organizations have released lists of recommended vehicles for teens, using slightly different selection criteria. By joining forces, CR and IIHS are making it even easier for young drivers or their parents to find a vehicle that checks all the boxes for safety, performance and reliability.
Teenagers are among the riskiest drivers, but they frequently end up with vehicles that don’t provide adequate protection in a crash.
