Subaru to Hike Prices of Core Models in the Philippines


The continued weakening of the Philippine Peso is forcing Motor Image Pilipinas, the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in the country to implement a price increase on selected models. The price increase will affect its core models: the Subaru XV, Forester, and Levorg beginning January 1, 2017.

Citing their vehicles’ exceptional engineering, design, functionality, safety, and quality, Motor Image Pilipinas will have to adjust their pricing as the cost of importing these vehicles from Japan have been made significantly higher than before.

According to sources, the impending increase will be 1.5 percent for the Subaru XV, Forester, and Levorg. This means the new prices would be:
  • Subaru Forester 2.0i-L: ~P 1,468,000 (from P 1,448,000)
  • Subaru Forester 2.0i-Premium: ~P 1,673,000 (from P 1,648,000)
  • Subaru Forester 2.0 XT: ~P 1,948,000 (from P 1,918,000)
  • Subaru Levorg 1.6 GT-S: ~P 1,743,000 (from P 1,718,000)
  • Subaru XV 2.0i: ~P 1,338,000 (from P 1,318,000)
  • Subaru XV 2.0i-Premium: ~P 1,520,000 (from P 1,498,000)
Motor Image Pilipinas reminds would-be buyers that with a few days before the end of 2016, they are encouraged to take this opportunity to reserve their desired Subaru vehicle before the price hike takes effect next year.

As the Philippine Peso continues to weaken, it’s only going to be a matter of time when the other Subaru models: Legacy, Outback, Subaru BRZ, WRX, and WRX STI will also be subjected to price hikes.

  4. Probably because since they introduced the new Impreza using their new platform, gagamitin nila yung platform na yun para sa mga new cars nila based on it (Forester, XV, Levorg). Seriously, ang ganda ng interior ng bagong Impreza.

    Siguro kaya nagtagaas din ng price ay dahil magtataas talaga sila ng price once the new platform is introduced here, para di masyadong mabigla ang mga tao. Most probably kaya hindi kasamang nagtaas ang WRX at STi ay dahil hindi volume sellers yung dalawa, di tulad ng XV at Forester.
