Your new graduate is going to need reliable transportation to and from that new job they just landed. Here are some stylish cars that are under $25,000 and above 30 mpg to save a little more coin.
The very cool Chevy Spark comes equipped with a 7-inch color touchscreen and full iPod integration with streaming audio and BringGo navigation app. Vibrant colors, 15-inch alloys and rear spoiler make is sporty and it achieves 32/38 mpg city/highway. Tickets start under $12,500, including a five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
New or used, coupe or sedan, the Honda Civic is a great first-car choice. The 140-horsepower four-cylinder engine achieves 28/39 mpg city/highway. Navigation, USB, Bluetooth, moonroof and heated leather are available for slightly more than the sub-$18,000 base price.
Hyundai Elantra GT
The Hyundai Elantra GT features a sport suspension, driver-selectable steering modes and 148-horsepower engine that achieves 27/37 mpg city/highway. The interior has heated leather, a cooled glovebox, and Bluetooth streaming audio. Blue Link adds voice-to-text messaging, Web searching and navigation. Prices start around $18,500 including Hyundai’s 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
Your dad probably isn’t in need of a whole new car, so here are some gift ideas to help him spruce up the one he already has.
GPS Navigation System
The latest generations of GPS have tons of new features to help you get from point A to point B quickly and safely. Some popular models include Garmin and TomTom. You could also try a GPS app like CoPilot Live or Google Maps.
Wax and Polish Detailing Kit
A great way to help make dad’s old car look like new is with a detailing kit. Find one that features a microfiber sponge, a microfiber wash mitt, car wash, wax and polishes. This is a must for the do-it-yourself car detailing dad.
Remote Vehicle Starter System
An all-in-one remote-starter system is the perfect gift for dad. Check out these ones from Bulldog Security that come with an extended range remote, programmable cold start, keyless entry, and remote trunk release.
Whatever the occasion this month, these gifts are sure to surprise any dad or grad.
