What is the best manual transmission car to purchase for a 16 year old regarding low insurance cost?

When it comes to auto insurance (state of California) which car would be best to purchase used or new for a 16 year old which would be a manual transmission. We all know insurance for a minor is outragous and we would like to train our young adult on a stick first so they know how to drive both stick and automatic in their adult life. What car do you think new or used would be the best on auto insurance? Please be specific on the make and model of the car? Thank in advance for your answers

A 4 door sedan with a 4cyl engine will be cheaper than most to insure. Higher safety rated vehicle will also keep the insurance down (airbags make a difference). My first car was a Honda Accord 4cyl Manual transmission bought with 70k has over 200k and is still on the road today!Good Luck!
