In pictures: Top new cars for teens Add to ...

I'm a VroomGirls kinda guy. <p>Yes, the website that bills itself as "The best car site for women" resonates with me with its recently released list: <a href="http://www.vroomgirls.com/6-best-new-cars-for-your-teenager/">"Six best new cars for your teenager."</a> </p> <p>Vroomgirls.com editors rated vehicles based on parental criteria - safety, reliability and value - but also considered what's important to teen drivers: user-content, styling and how fun each is to drive. </p> <p>Now, I am neither a woman nor a teenager but I am the father of two sons - one who recently exited the teen scene and another who is firmly entrenched in his adolescent angst. And oddly, I once owned one of the cars on the list (before my sons were teens) and recently took delivery on another of VroomGirls top picks. But the new car is mine, not theirs. </p> <p>I'm not sure what any of this really says about me - and I'm not sure I care to know - so let's just go to the list, shall we? </p><p>Click <b><a href="http://www.vroomgirls.com/6-best-new-cars-for-your-teenager/">here </a></b> for a detailed explanation on why each car was chosen. </p><p><b>Correction:</b>An earlier online version of this story included a picture of a Golf GTI. This has been amended.</p>
