My son is about 6’2” and 250 and doesn’t show any sign of ending puberty / growth any time soon - not sure a Focus would work. Under my own insurance, I have a permissive use clause that allows him to use any vehicle I own at the moment. That said, I want to get something that could last him through college and will fit his overgrown ass as he continues on his quest to outgrow me.One thing you may want to consider is cost on insurance. Every area is different on price, but the cars that would be classic first teenager vehicles have a tendency to be more expensive due to accident rate.
A Subaru is going to be cheaper many times over a Ford Fusion.
The Nissan Altima, Honda Civics, Toyota Camry, and Chevy Malibu sometimes are pricier.
We gave our sons a Ford Focus to drive in Indiana. They get a good deal of bad weather. Vehicle has been reliable all four years so far
I’m fairly undecided at the moment. Subaru and Fors offer AWD...you start getting into German cars for AWD after that. I could hand him my 4Runner but I really don’t want him having that high Center if gravity just yet.
