Motor Image Pilipinas (MIP), the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in the Philippines, is expanding the local Forester lineup with the launch of the new Forester GT Lite Edition.
As its name suggests, this is a more budget-friendly version of the sporty Forester GT Edition that MIP launched back in March last year. It’s priced at P1,980,000, just a bit more expensive than the base i-L EyeSight variant.
This more affordable Forester still comes with the GT Edition goodies, though—it still has the GT Edition’s body kit and exhaust cutter. What the GT Lite Edition doesn’t get are the stylish alloy wheels.
MIP didn’t mention any further changes to this new variant, so it’s basically the same inside and out. It still packs a naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter gasoline boxer engine that generates 154hp and 196Nm of torque and is mated to a CVT. Of course, it also comes equipped with Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology.
Now, for all the prices of the entire Forester range, check out the list below:
2021 Subaru Forester Prices
- Subaru Forester GT Edition - P2,170,000
- Subaru Forester i-S EyeSight - P2,068,000
- Subaru Forester GT Lite Edition - P1,980,000
- Subaru Forester i-L EyeSight - P1,938,000
If you’re eyeing this new Forester variant, you should also take note that MIP is offering an introductory P50,000 cash discount on the GT Lite Edition for the month of February. Those who book test drives for this one will also earn chances to win Subaru merch worth up to P1,000. Nice.
So, is the new Subaru Forester GT Lite Edition worth your consideration?
