Philippines to play host to Subaru's latest performance models

The 2014 Subaru WRX and WRX STI will hold their ASEAN reveals in the Philippines with official distributor Motor Image Pilipinas as host to regional delegates scheduled in early April. This will be the very first time a vehicle model makes its regional reveal in the country. Normally, manufacturers hold regional reveals in Malaysia, Indonesia or Thailand, much larger markets than ours. 

2014 Subaru WRX

The 2014 Subaru WRX made its global debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November last year. It debuted with a 2.0-liter direct-injection boxer turbo (DIT) engine rated at 272 PS and 350 Nm mated to either a six-speed manual or sport CVT. Exact performance ratings for the ASEAN version have not yet been revealed.
