Subaru lovers who live in the southern part of Manila and in southern Philippines will no longer have to travel all the way to Motor Image's showroom in Greenhills as the Philippines' exclusive distributor of the Japanese vehicles will soon have a showroom in three new locations.
According to Nicky Mariano, Motor Image Pilipinas' general manager, a Subaru showroom in Bonifacio Global City will rise where tuning shop Autotechnika is currently located. Since the dealership will be housed in an existing structure, Motor Image will only have to remodel both the exterior and interior setup before officially opening its doors to clients within the third quarter of 2011.
"It's a pity that we can only display up to four cars in the showroom area," Mariano said. "As much as we'd like to put on display our entire model lineup, there's just not enough space."
The dealership will also have a full service facility so Subaru owners can bring their cars and have its periodic maintenance service done on-site.
A Subaru dealership in Alabang is also in the works, Mariano added, and behind it is a group of automotive enthusiast, which includes AutoPlus principal Carlos Gono.
A dealership is also being planned for Davao that, according to Mariano, will be run by the same individual who used to operate the Chevrolet Davao dealership.
Subaru Davao will be the third dealership to be established outside of Metro Manila following the opening of the Japanese carmaker's dealerships in Cebu and Pampanga in 2010.
