If you could still buy a Forester XT brand new, would you? Fortunately, you still can. In fact, this may be the last time you can buy a turbocharged Forester from the dealership before the new fifth-generation models take over which will not be available with a turbocharged boxer engine. However, if the list price of Php 2,048,000 is holding you back, Subaru Philippines is offering a discount that can make it easier to buy one.
For the month of May, Motor Image Pilipinas, the exclusive distributor of Subaru in the country, is offering a Php 150,000 cash discount for the previous-generation Forester XT. This means you can get the last of the turbocharged Foresters for only around Php 1,898,000. What’s more is that they will also be including a new Sport Kit worth approximately Php 150,000 for free when you purchase a unit. Included in the kit is a front sport grill, front under spoiler, rear under spoiler, STI leather shift knob, and Sport emblem, all of which help enhance the Forester XT’s looks.
Only a few units of the Forester XT remain at Subaru dealerships nationwide. Powering the XT is a turbocharged 2.0-liter flat-four engine – the same engine used in the WRX. It produces 240 PS with 350 Nm torque and is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) which sends power to all four wheels via Subaru’s Symmetrical All Wheel Drive System.
The promo ends on May 31, 2019. Head to the Subaru dealership near you to avail of the Forester XT for a discount and with the new Sport Kit.
