Motor Image Pilipinas, Inc. (MIPI), the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in the Philippines recently launched the brand’s newest name plate-the all-new Subaru Levorg.
“Subaru’s brand new model is an Innovative Tourer that combines the sports performance of Subaru with the practicality of a wagon. With a newly designed boxer engine, agile handling and an abundant load space, we feel that the Levorg will appeal to the functional, family oriented and adventurous customer who appreciates performance, touring capabilities and ample space,” said Mr. Glen Tan, Executive Director of Tan Chong International Ltd., the principal behind MIPI.
Derived from the words ‘Legacy’, ‘Revolution’, and ‘Touring’, the Levorg offers customers the performance and practicality of a tourer, with the stylish design and feel of a vehicle with the Subaru marque.
The all-wheel drive Levorg is powered by Subaru’s 1.6-liter 4-cylinder Direct Injection Turbo (DIT) boxer engine that produces 170Ps @ 4,800-5,600 RPM and maximum torque of 250Nm @ 1,800-4,800 RPM. The power plant is paired with Lineartronic CVT transmission.
Some of the highlighted features include Subaru’s Intelligent Drive (SI-Drive) that allows the driver to switch from Intelligent and Sport modes; a 6.2-inch multi-touch infotainment system; and flexible cargo space. Safety features include Subaru Rear Vehicle Detection (for the GT-S model available in the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam); Ring-shaped reinforcement frames; and a break-away engine that is designed to move safely underneath the vehicle in case of a head-on collision.
MIPI is bringing in the 2016 Subaru 1.6 GT-S variant to the Philippine market, and has priced it at Php1,718,000.00.
