Motor Image Pilipinas, Inc. (MIPI), the official distributor of Subaru vehicles in the Philippines, adds a new variant for the Subaru Outback, the 2.5i-S. As a treat, the first 50 buyers of this variant will receive a huge discount.
Compared to the current Outback 3.6R-S, the new 2.5i-S variant comes with a smaller 16-valve 2.5L boxer engine that can produce up to 175 hp and 235 Nm of torque at a lower 4,000 rpm. Its fuel consumption rate of 13 km/l makes it a fuel-efficient power plant as opposed to the Outback 3.6R-S that does a combined rate of 10.1 km/l. Power is then transferred to a Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) on all 4 wheels.
One more notable difference between the 2 variants is that the new Outback 2.5i-S has a higher 213 mm ground clearance from the 200 mm of the 3.6R-S.
Other features like LED headlamps with auto-leveliser, roof spoiler, pop-up type headlamp washers, X-mode technology, 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, push start button, and 8-way power adjustable driver seat comes standard in both variants. However, the 12 Harman/Kardon speakers, leather trims, and the rear ventilation system comes standard with the higher Outback 3.6R-S variant and is only optional for the new Outback 2.5i-S.
The Subaru Outback 2.5i-S is priced at P2,068,000. However, MIPI will slash off P100,000 to the 1st 50 buyers of this variant.
