The first half of 2013 is looking to be a busy one for Motor Image Pilipinas (MIP), the official distributor of Subaru vehicles in the Philippines. Not only will it be taking and delivering orders for the BRZ by then following the sports car's November 2012 launch, it will also be tied up with the opening of a new showroom and the launch of the all-new Forester.
According to our source within the company, MIP's new showroom will be located in Aseana City adjacent to the SM Mall of Asia complex in Pasay City, near the Department of Foreign Affairs office and the S&R Supermarket. This will give Manila- and Pasay City-based Subaru owners a more convenient venue to have their vehicles serviced as well as new car shoppers a new place in which to buy a brand-new Subaru.
Another thing that will keep MIP busy next year is the launch of the all-new Forester. Though nothing concrete has been set, our source guaranteed that it will go on sale "late second quarter of 2013."
Looks like now is a good time to head to a Subaru showroom and buy the current-generation Forester since you might get a really good deal once this news breaks out.
