When it comes to deciding what kind of car your teen should drive, there are probably two main things that you will consider: safety and cost. Safety first and foremost, because you want your precious cargo to be protected, especially as they get used to driving themselves. And cost because, let’s face it, you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a brand new car that could easily be wrecked in a few years’ time.

With this in mind, Consumer Reports has just released a list of the best teen cars, and it takes into account both of these crucial factors, providing us with the safest used cars under $10,000.

Here are the top 10 suggestions:

Chevrolet Malibu (2009-2012, 4-cylinder), starting at $8,125
Ford Focus (2009-2011), starting at $6,050
Ford Fusion (2010-2012, 4-cyl. and hybrid), starting at $8,325
Hyundai Sonata (2006-2014, 4-cyl., non-turbo), starting at $5,450
Kia Soul (2010-2011), starting at $8,925
