Why Buy a Subaru?

Why Buy a Subaru in Lafayette, LA

With so many automotive brands out there, it can be difficult to narrow down your choices. Even with your budget and lifestyle in mind, you can still be left with a handful of competing brands that, on the surface, all seem to offer the same benefits. We understand that many car-shoppers throughout Louisiana are overwhelmed with their options — that's why we'd like to advocate for a dependable, proven brand that's been around for the last 50 years: Subaru. The team here at Giles Subaru knows that Subaru vehicles are known for their off-road capabilities and eye-catching design, while the brand itself is known for its commitment to sustainability and, as they say, spreading the love. Plus, you'd be hard pressed to find a fan base as loyal as Subaru owners. If you want to know what all the fuss is about, read on to discover why we recommend buying a new or used Subaru for your next vehicle upgrade.

Reasons to Buy a Subaru

Overall Efficiency

You won't be purchasing a gas-guzzler when you drive home a Subaru. Each one offers exceptional miles per gallon, no matter if you choose a sedan or an SUV. We're talking about numbers as high as an EPA-estimated 36 mpg on the highway with a new 2022 Subaru Impreza and an EPA-estimated 34 mpg on the highway with a new 2022 Subaru Crosstrek.1 How are these numbers possible? It's all thanks to the harmonious balance of the SUBARU BOXER® engine, a turbocharged powertrain that can be found standard in nearly every model. There's also the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid, which gets an EPA-estimated 90 MPGe on a full battery charge, and the incoming 2023 Subaru Solterra, a first-ever, all-electric SUV that offers over 220 miles of estimated range.2 If you like saving money at the pump, choose a Subaru.

Off-Road Performance

All that efficiency doesn't sacrifice performance. If anything, it adds to it. Most Subaru models are equipped with a turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine, which will be positioned in-line with the drivetrain to provide a maximum transfer of power. The Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system grounds each Subaru by continually rotating power to all four wheels, ensuring outstanding grip in all weather conditions. You'll love the added ground clearance from the Subaru Forester, Outback and Crosstrek models' raised suspensions — up to 8.7 inches, in fact — since it'll make those gravel roads less of a treacherous trek. Where will you take your Subaru? Because with its performance capabilities, your possibilities are wide open.

Subaru Wilderness

Introducing Subaru Wilderness, a new lineup within the Subaru family that promotes all-terrain adventure and rugged good looks. Competitors don't have an equivalent to this unique lineup, which includes the all-new 2022 Forester Wilderness and all-new 2022 Outback Wilderness. With increased ground clearance, standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and enhanced dual-function X-MODE®, each model is specifically designed to take on off-road trails without breaking a sweat. Resilient exterior style features, like upgraded roof rails, all-terrain tires, LED lighting, glare-reducing hood decals and tough exterior cladding, aren't there just to provide more durability — it's a unique style that sets Subaru Wilderness models apart.
