We all want our teens to drive the safest vehicle on the road, but for many families the top safety pick isn't necessarily in their budget.
A newly-released list may help parents make the best choice possible.

The list is broken into size categories.
One of the least expensive safe cars on the list is the Volvo S80, which is only $5,800.
