After doubling sales in 2008, Motor Image Pilipinas is doubling its presence in the local market this year.
Car enthusiasts in the Visayas and Mindanao will find Subaru vehicles more accessible as Motor Image plans to open a showroom in Cebu.
"We are opening in the second half of the year - around August. It is somewhere in the Mandaue area," said Ariel de Jesus, Motor Image marketing manager.
The entire lineup of Subaru vehicles, including the Impreza, Outback and Forester, will be available in the Subaru showroom in Cebu.
De Jesus said Motor Image Pilipinas, the exclusive distributor of Subaru cars in the country, is looking at breaking grounds for a new Subaru showroom in Metro Manila this year.
He added that the company may start exploring Mindanao in 2010 to search for a possible showroom location.
