It seems cosmetic enhancements are the in thing these days. As you know, Honda Cars Philippines has made available official Mugen and Modulo products to its customers, and Toyota Motor Philippines has done the same thing with TRD. Some cars of the above-mentioned Japanese brands can now be bought with a set of aftermarket accessories.
Subaru distributor Motor Image Pilipinas is now taking its cue from its fellow Nippon brands by announcing the release of the Subaru XV STI Performance variant. This new XV variant is essentially an XV with the same 2.0-liter boxer engine and Lineartronic CVT transmission--but with cosmetic enhancements inside and out.
The added exterior and interior features are:
* Front under-spoiler
* Daytime running lights
* Side under-spoilers
* Rear roof spoiler
* Rear under-spoiler
* STI flexible tower bar
* Leather seats
* High-grade-type multifunction display
* Rear vision camera
* Paddle shifters
* Dual-zone automatic air-conditioning system with anti-dust filter
* Power-sliding, tilt-adjustable sunroof
* HID headlamps
How much for all these cosmetic goodies? The XV STI Performance variant is being sold at a price of P1,578,000. It is now available at all Subaru dealerships in Greenhills, Bonifacio Global City, Manila Bay, Alabang, Santa Rosa, Batangas, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro and Davao.
