Why A Subaru is the Perfect Graduation Gift

July 10th, 2022 by

If you’re an aunt or uncle, maybe you get your niece or nephew a new pair of AirPods as a graduation gift. If you’re a family friend, a good set of towels make for an acceptable albeit blah graduation gift. But what if you’re the proud parents of an almost-adult? You’ve got to step up your game!

Subaru. Subaru. Subaru. It’s the modern “Wow, I can’t believe how old you’ve gotten” version of a Tickle Me Elmo, of a Cabbage Patch Kid, of a Wii. Any fresh graduate wants one, even if they don’t know it yet, because Subarus make for excellent, dependable, safe vehicles that can last and last and last. In fact, just about 96% of Subaru vehicles sold in the last decade are still doing Subaru-y things today—now that’s pretty incredible.

So, if you need to buy your son or daughter a graduation gift that says, “We really love you and hope that you make good use of the tuition money we spent on that English degree,” then the only real option is to buy them a Subaru.

Standard AWD

All Subaru models, including the smallest and most affordable 2022 Subaru Impreza, come with all-wheel drive. Any out-and-about youngster will enjoy having a car that can tackle mud, sand, ice, more sand, and virtually anything else that gets thrown their way off the beaten track.

Also Subaru is the only car brand that has AWD standardized across its lineup.

Top Safety Ratings

Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology reduces rear-end crashes with injuries by 85%—that’s a fact. Most new Subaru models come with EyeSight as standard fare, including the cheapest model in the lineup, the 2022 Impreza.

Speaking of the Impreza, it was also given a 2022 IIHS Top Safety Pick award for its excellent crashworthiness and crash preventiveness. IIHS also gave Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick+ awards to Impreza’s siblings, Crosstrek, Crosstrek Hybrid, WRX, Legacy, Outback, Forester and Ascent.

Wait, isn’t that, like, every Subaru model?

Yes. Yes, it is. (Subaru BRZ was not available for comment at the time of this posting.)

You’ve kept your kid-safe for the last 18, 19, 32 years; don’t stop now. Give them a graduation gift


If your child has gone vegan, recycles more than they throw stuff in the trash, or buys organic whole-wheat toothpaste, they’ll want a vehicle that is also one with the planet.

Electric cars are great options, but they aren’t always practical for new grads who like to go places, do things, see people. The best alternative is a fuel-efficient hybrid, like the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid. The Crosstrek Hybrid wagon gets 90 MPGe, offers all the perks of the traditional Crosstrek, but fewer emissions. Ask us about buying a hybrid Subaru Crosstrek in Birmingham.

Another selling point: Subaru was the first automotive plant in the U.S. to achieve zero-landfill status. All Subaru vehicles are built in zero-landfill plants, where 100% of waste is recycled or turned into electricity.
