Motor Image Pilipinas, Inc. (MIPI), has finally introduced the latest version of the Subaru Outback to the local market — the sixth-generation of the award-winning crossover.

The nameplate, which was originally meant to be one of the four models launched back in the first half the year, had its last update back in 2018, when it had Eyesight technology fitted. Now, the all-new Subaru Outback is set to be the wearing the brand’s most sophisticated driver assist safety system to date.

Powered by a 2.5-liter direct injection boxer engine, the all-new Subaru Outback powertrain can dish out 185hp and 245Nm that helps the vehicle run from standstill to 100km/h in 9.6 seconds.

Tan Chong International Ltd. Deputy Chairman and Managing Director Glenn Tan claimed that the all-new Subaru Outback is a feature-packed, value-for-money offering.

“This car is really about giving you a refined, premium driving experience in a feature-packed model at an unbeatable price for you to go create your best memories with your loved ones. Fans of the Outback will know that it is reliable and always there for you, taking you on your best journeys, time after time,” Tan said.

“It has the latest best-in-class safety features and spaciousness usually found in luxury European brands. It will keep you and your loved ones safe and comfortable. It is stable, versatile, and practical, with a touch of luxury. It is a well-equipped high-end car, without the high-end price tag,” he added.

The latest vehicle launch also serves as the debut of the latest version of the Subaru EyeSight technology. The 4.0 iteration of the Subaru EyeSight now has improved stereo cameras and wider angle of coverage, helping the driver to better detect obstacles and help prevent potential collisions.
