Vehicle prices from different car brands are starting to rise with the only one thing to blame – excise tax. As a result, people went frenzy buying their prospect cars last year, an economic reaction we can refer to as the 'excise tax rush.' Even AutoDeal was affected by the rush as we recorded a 355% sales increase on December 29, 2017.
Well, Motor Image Pilipinas, Inc. (MIPI), the executive distributor of Subaru in the Philippines, wants you to forget about excise tax...at least until January ends. That's because you can get a Forester at a price as if excise tax never existed. In short, the Forester is still available with its 2017 price tag.
The Forester i-L retains its price at P1,468,000, the Forester i-P is still at P1,678,000, while the top-range Forester XT holds ground at P1,948,000.
You have to hurry, though, as prices are expected to increase starting February 1. Added price will be P80,000 for the i-L, P90,000 for the i-P, and P100,000 for the XT.
Beyond the said date, the i-L variant's retail value is going to be P1,548,000, the i-P at P1,768,000, and the XT at P2,048,000 — all in compliance to the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law. That's quite a difference, so what are you waiting for?
Quite a sad exhibit but hey, at least now we know.
This is a good a time as any to get your hands on a Honda.
Details are still vague at this point, but we’re already excited.
