Subaru First Automaker with two consecutive Sport/Utility of the Year Titles

Motor Image Pilipinas' newly launched Subaru Outback has recently been named Motor Trend's 2010 Sport/Utility of the year. The Subaru Outback's victory follows the Subaru Forester's win for the 2009 award, making Subaru the first automaker to win two consecutive Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year awards.

Motor Trend editor-in-chief, Angus MacKenzie, said "The 2010 Subaru Outback offers a unique combination of comfort, efficiency, versatility and value. It boasts car-like refinement, drivability and gas mileage on the road, yet is as capable in the rough stuff as all but the most off-road focused sport utilities. Thoughtfully engineered, cleverly detailed and competitively priced, the Subaru Outback is a terrific all-rounder with broad appeal."

"It is truly a great accolade for Subaru to be awarded the Motor Trend 2010 Sport/Utility of the Year award for the second consecutive year" said Nicky Mariano, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer, Motor Image Group. "To have won the award last year for the Forester was wonderful enough, but to win this year's award as well for the Outback is a remarkable achievement. Having the ideal balance of performance, safety, and versatility, the Subaru Outback is the complete package."

Motor Image Pilipinas has been one of the best performing dealer/distributor in the country with sales steadily increasing. Mariano added, "The success of Motor Image is attributed to our outstanding products, and also to the commitment and dedication of our retail sales network and great sales and marketing programs. We are absolutely delighted that Motor Trend has added their validation to the Subaru brand."
