Motor Image Pilipinas Inc., the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in the Philippines, formally introduces the Subaru Eyesight Driver Assist Technology at the World Trade Center during the opening day of the 2018 Manila International Auto Show. Along with EyeSight, the refreshed Subaru Outback and refreshed Subaru Levorg make their first public appearance, along with the Subaru XV which is also now equipped with Subaru EyeSight.

“It is with great pleasure to introduce the award-winning Subaru EyeSight technology to the consumers in the Philippines”, says Mister Reza Mutalib, Country Head of Motor Image Pilipinas. He further highlights that “EyeSight represents the fourth pillar of Subaru’s Core Technology, we hope to give a unique driving experience to Filipinos who are in pursuit of the highest standards of safety, comfort, versatility, and performance in a car.

Subaru EyeSight consists of six core functions, which are: Pre-Collision Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Throttle Management, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Sway Warning, and Lead Vehicle Start Alert.

Leading the charge for the EyeSight’s debut in the Philippines is the refreshed Subaru Outback. The 2018 Outback features a more rugged yet refined exterior design that features many of the brand’s key design elements. It gains the brand’s signature LED “hawk-eye” headlights with C-shaped LED daytime running lights, newly designed 18-inch alloy wheels, and revised LED tail lights. Interior appointments have also been refined, lending to the Outback accentuating its more premium and refined nature compared to its predecessor. Subaru StarLink makes its debut inside the Outback, providing seamless infotainment usability, complemented by the availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.

The Subaru Outback is powered by a 3.6 liter flat-6 that produces 260 hp and 350 Nm of torque, with power sent through all four wheels via a CVT.

The refreshed Subaru Levorg, and the Subaru XV 2.0i-s EyeSight, which is a new variant for the XV that debuts the EyeSight technology, also make their debut. The Subaru Levorg benefits from a mildly revised fascia that features a new grille, slightly redesigned front bumpers, and new LED Steering Responsive Healights with C-shaped LED daytime running lights. New 18-inch alloy wheels also grace the Levorg’s exterior.

The new Outback, XV, and Levorg equipped with Subaru EyeSight is now available for booking at all Subaru showrooms nationwide.

Subaru Outback 3.6R-S EyeSight: P2,408,000
Subaru Levorg 1.6 GT-S EyeSight: P1,888,000
Subaru XV 2.0i-s EyeSight: P1,668,000
