What was your first car out of college? Probably whatever you took with you at the time. Today's college grads from Westborough to Worcester are getting a great start on their career, thanks to Subaru. Autotrader has just put out a list of the best cars for recent college graduates, with the Subaru Crosstrek earning a spot on this list.

The Subaru team in Shrewsbury is not surprised at all. For years, we've known just how much value the Crosstrek brings to the table. This crossover is practical in so many ways, and we're happy the model has been recognized as an ideal vehicle for young adults.

One of the reasons many recent college graduates choose this car is its affordability. For a very reasonable price, the Crosstrek comes with many attractive features. It can be hard to find another model in the same price range with all the same amenities. It comes with driver-assist systems, a large touchscreen, smartphone connectivity, a premium sound system, SiriusXM, and navigation. Young adults are used to being connected, and the Crosstrek makes it easy to do so, especially since it can have Wi-Fi capability.

Whether you're hauling equipment or friends around Marlborough, the Crosstrek has a good amount of interior space. The two rows of seating are very comfortable, and you can lower the rear seats down when you need more room. If you want to treat yourself to extra features, consider getting a trim with heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.

The Crosstrek is durable, and it'll live up to a lot of wear and tear. It has two available engines, both quite capable and efficient, and it has symmetrical all-wheel drive as a standard component. Wherever your adventures take you, the Crosstrek will be up to the challenge. There's even a hybrid model that you might consider if you want to spend less money at the gas station.
