If you’re the parent or guardian of a new, teen driver, you likely have reservations about them getting on the road with little driving experience. While we understand your concerns, new drivers must start somewhere. The key is focusing on how your teen can stay safe on the road.
If you’re on the search for a vehicle for your teen driver, here are some advanced car safety features you may want to consider:
- Forward Collision Warning
The FCW feature alerts your teen driver of an impending collision, which can help prevent an unexpected accident from occurring.
- Blind Spot Warning
This alerts your teen driver of vehicles that are behind them and in adjacent lanes.
- Automatic Emergency Braking
This system detects potential collisions while traveling forward, provides forward collision warning, and automatically applies the brakes to avoid or lessen the severity of impact. Some systems include pedestrian or other object detection.
- Lane Departure Warning
This safety feature monitors the vehicle’s position within the driving lane, alerting your teen driver as the vehicle approaches or crosses lane markers.
- Rear Cross-Traffic Warning
This feature alerts teen drivers of vehicles approaching from the side and rear of vehicle while traveling in reverse.

This safety feature assists your teen driver with acceleration and braking to maintain a prescribed distance between their vehicle and the vehicle in front of it.
