Slideshow: Cars That Won't Embarrass Your Teen

Nissan Leaf

Some teens might find the excess of the Cadillac Escalade embarrassing. If your teen cares more about going green than showing off that you have green, they’ll like the Nissan Leaf. With an all-electric powertrain, the Nissan Leaf can travel up to 100 miles on a single charge. That can help keep teen drivers close to home, and the Leaf’s crash test scores give parents extra reassurance.
