2015 Toyota Yaris: Best Car for Washington Teens
School is about to start, and Washington-area teens’ schedules will soon be hectic. Marching band practice, football away games, after school study sessions, not to mention back and forth to school—Moms and Dads may not want to chaperone every single trip. If you are looking for a efficient and safe car for your busy teenager, check out the 2015 Toyota Yaris from Miller Toyota in Manassas.
Size is Important
While you may wish your child were driving a tank, a large SUV or truck is actually dangerous for a young driver. Heavy vehicles have long stopping distances, so those with undeveloped reflexes are less likely to stop in time to avoid collisions. It is also more difficult to steer out of the way of danger in large vehicles. Since avoiding a crash is the first priority in driving, smaller, more agile vehicles are better for young, inexperienced drivers.
That’s where the 2015 Yaris comes in. Independent MacPherson strut front suspension with stabilizer bar with available sport tuning, standard sport-tuned Electric Power Steering, and available 4-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence make the 2015 Yaris incredibly agile. Plus, with the 106-hp 1.5L engine, this hatchback has enough get-up-and-go to move with urgency, but isn’t suped-up to the point that your teen attempts to drag race on the freeway.
Focus on Safety
Keeping your eyes on the road is the name of the game in teenage driving. Standard Yaris Entune Audio features a single 6.1-inch touchscreen from which the driver operates the audio system and phone features. In fact, phone calls are operable through voice recognition and Bluetooth technology, eliminating any reason to hold the phone while driving.
The 2015 Yaris is designed to protect your teen on the mean streets of the big city. High-tensile-strength steel body panels, nine airbags, and Toyota’s Star Safety System, including Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Anti-lock Brake System, and Smart Stop Technology, work every day to protect occupants. Plus, ToyotaCare is included, featuring a no cost maintenance plan with roadside assistance*.
