31 Aug Top Car Picks For Dad
Father’s Day is coming up and if you ask every dad from here to Tasmania, they’ll tell you that socks, jocks and scrambled eggs in bed just won’t cut it this year. And while you’ve been storming around the menswear section of Myer looking for something half decent for Dad that he won’t throw in the garage and have forgotten about this time next week, we’ve been putting together a list of four things he’ll thank you for every day for the rest of his life.
Here are our top car picks for Dad.
There’s a lot for Dad to love about the Audi A4, namely that they’re as sleek and stylish as the day is long. In barbecue speak, the Audi A4 is the Weber Family Q of the streets. It’s sharp sedan body and aesthetic will catch the eye of every family member at Sunday lunch, while its multi-speaker stereo, CD player and Bluetooth connectivity will make it impossible to pull Uncle Craig out. But the thing that’ll win Dad’s heart is its heart-stopping drivability. With a 4 cylinder 2.0L turbo engine, rear park assist and electronic stability, this vehicle drives like a song and makes every family road trip tolerable.
According to the dads in the office, two of the better models are the 2010 and the 2014.
Give Dad everything he’s always wanted with the Mercedes-Benz A45. He’ll be fawning over entertainment features like Bluetooth and internet connectivity, CD and DVD players, a multi-function colour display screen, 12 speaker stereo and sound system. And thanks to the 4 cylinder 2.0L turbo engine, you’ll be waving goodbye to Dad forever while he enjoys hours on the road with voice recognition technology, heated seats, sports steering and suspension, and 19” alloy wheels.

Give Dad the daily work commute he’s always wanted with the ever-popular, ever-reliable (and ever-sleek) Subaru Forester. He’ll enjoy perks like a 6 speaker stereo, subwoofer, electronic stability, keyless entry, cruise control, multi-function power steering and 17” alloy wheels. If there was ever a way to say thank you to Dad for all the driving lessons (and near misses overtaking on the Hume), it’s with the ultimate adventure and outdoors vehicle.

Last but absolutely not least is the Toyota RAV4 a.k.a man’s best friend. This 4 cylinder 2.0L automatic transmission SUV is the pinnacle of reliability and durability in the school carpark, if not the country. With seven airbags, a 5 star ANCAP safety rating, electronic stability and rear driving assistance, picking up a quality used Toyota RAV4 is about as sound as investments come. Don’t worry though, there’s also fun perks like Bluetooth connectivity, a multi-function colour control screen, CD player, 6 speaker stereo, cruise control, keyless start and a set of 18” alloy wheels to get the heart pumping.
According to the dads in the office, you can’t go past the 2015 Toyota RAV4.
