A red 2020 Mazda3 Hatchback - El Dorado Mazda in McKinney, TX

If you have a young driver in the family, getting them the right car is an important step in making sure that they feel empowered and responsible. Turning to El Dorado Mazda in McKinney, Texas, is a great way to start making that step. Not only do we have several great, affordable vehicles in stock and ready to roll, but our team also has the knowhow to make sure you know what to look for in a car for your teen.

The Price Is Right

Purchasing or leasing a new vehicle is a great way to teach your kid about value, and there aren’t many value brands better than Mazda. Several vehicles in the new Mazda lineup start near $20,000, including the exciting new Mazda3 Sedan and Mazda3 Hatchback, and you can get even more value if you opt for a Certified Pre-Owned Mazda. Not only do Mazda cars, crossovers, and SUVs have nice price tags, but they’re also packed with premium styling and modern technology. Talk about bang for the buck.

The Performance Is Undeniable

While you of course want your kid to feel a sense of responsibility, it’s also important that they have some fun. Mazda engineers its vehicles to deliver a deft balance of performance thrills and exceptional efficiency, which helps your teen driver save money at the pump and makes them feel excited about taking care of their new ride.

If you’re looking for a vehicle with a definite cool factor, the Mazda3 is a great choice. Not only is the newest version the winner of the 2020 World Car Design of the Year award, but the previous generation earned the title of Kelley Blue Book’s Coolest Car for five years in a row.

The Safety and Security Come Standard

As a parent, one of the most stressful moments you experience is handing off the keys to a teen driver. For as much as you trust your kid to be safe and make smart decisions, you know that there is a lot of risk associated with getting behind the wheel. Mazda wants you to feel more confident as a parent, and that’s why its lineup has more IIHS Top Safety Pick+ awards than any other manufacturer (as of March 2020). Add to that the fact that many new Mazda vehicles feature standard i-ACTIVSENSE® safety features that help keep your kid out of trouble and you can be sure that their Mazda is looking out for them as much as you are.


If you’re on the hunt for a car for your young driver, there aren’t many options better than a Mazda. Whether you’re thinking new, used, or Certified Pre-Owned, El Dorado Mazda in McKinney, Texas, has a wide selection to check out with your teen driver.
