GMC has some fantastic family vehicles on the market, with options for parents and teens alike. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and Consumer Reports, the GMC Terrain is one of the “best choices” for teens to drive. Whether your teen is driving in Bellefontaine, Ohio, or across the state, you can have peace of mind when they’re behind the wheel of the Terrain.
Consumer Reports teamed up with the IIHS to develop a report on the best models for young drivers, especially if you’re sticking to a budget. 2014 and 2016 to present Terrain models made the list in the midsize SUV segment. To land on the list of “best choices”, the Terrain had to score “good” ratings in different IIHS tests. It also needed to have electronic stability control and high Consumer Reports’ reliability grades.
The Terrain is also worthy of making the list thanks to its wide array of safety features. The 2021 model, for example, comes standard with Automatic Emergency Braking, the Following Distance Indicator, Front Pedestrian Braking, Forward Collision Alert, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. It also has the Teen Driver system, which includes an in-vehicle report card so you know how your teen is driving on the road.
