Subaru Just Quietly Increased the Price of the 2019 Forester

This piece of news flew past below most radars, so in case you missed it: Motor Image Pilipinas, the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in the country decided to increase the price of the all-new 2019 Forester.

The move comes as no surprise given the launch prices of the Forester were just introductory. As a refresher, the prices announced last January were: P 1,598,000 for the 2.0i-L, P 1,698,000 for the 2.0i-L with EyeSight, and P 1,798,000 for the 2.0i-S with EyeSight.

However, with majority of buyers opting for the highest trim 2.0i-S with EyeSight, the distributor says the stock of the first batch of units have already been depleted.

A second batch of units has just landed in the Philippines and with that, a shift to the regular non-introductory price. The hike? P 30,000. This pushes the price of the range-topping 2.0i-S with EyeSight to P 1,828,000.

Sources within Motor Image Pilipinas says that the hike isn’t the “endgame” yet. A price increase may soon follow on both the 2.0i-L and 2.0i-L with EyeSight. While, the 2.0i-S with EyeSight may also see a second round of price increase in the next few months too.

In short, if you’re in the market for a Subaru Forester, now is the right time to act.


  1. Ill just wait for the 2020 2.4 turbo outback.

  2. does the new batch have the side view monitor?

    1. Specs are the same for the next batch of cars.
