Subaru Philippines has already opened up the reservation books for the upcoming BRZ back in December last year. For that matter, it was reported that the first unit allocation for the said model has already been sold out. The company assured though that more batches are coming for the local market. 

Going back to 2022 MIAS, Subaru Philippines is also launching the updated Forester at the said event. To clarify, this is the facelifted Forester for the model year 2022. We also had a prior report about this stating that several units are already in the Philippines, and some are already on display at several Subaru dealerships. 

The famous British stunt driver, Russ Swift, will also make an appearance at the upcoming 2022 MIAS. He’s ready to wow the crowd with his precision driving, and there’s no doubt that he’ll be doing this again behind the wheel of a Subie.
