What is a good first car?

I’m looking to buy my first car soon and I want to know what a good starter car for a teen would be. I was looking at a 1990 Mercedes Benz 420 SEL and a 1993 Mercedes Benz 300E. Honestly, I’m just looking for a cheaper car that will get me where I’m needing to go. Thanks for any help!
