Here’s something to brighten the gloomy weather (FYI, today is the official start of the rainy season according to PAGASA) Motor Image Pilipinas, the official distributor of Subaru cars in the country, is extending its summer promo for its vehicles. So maybe the intermittent rain and flood warnings might tempt you into buying that Forester you’ve been eyeing?
With a 220mm ground clearance and a 500mm wading depth, you’ll be able to rationalize to your wife why you need the Forester turbo. After all, this compact SUV should be able to handle common Metro Manila floods, and with the extended promo, you can drive home the Forester P200,000 less from its original price.
But if fording urban flood is the least of your priorities, the promo includes vehicles like the WRX and WRX STI which you can buy with a P50,000 discount. And if you're not sure whether you want a performance vehicle or an urban-assault car, the XV crossover gets a P100,000 off.
