Subaru Philippines is gearing up for the debut of its challenger in the seven-seater crossover SUV segment. Motor Image Pilipinas (MIP), the official distributor of Subaru vehicles in the county, has already released a teaser campaign for the 2021 Evoltis.
2021 Subaru Evoltis
The Subaru Evoltis is the same as the Ascent that’s sold in the United States. It’s marketed as the Evoltis in the Asian market since the name Ascent was trademarked by Subaru North America. But overall, both the Evoltis and the Ascent are the same cars.
Last year, Subaru PH said that the Evoltis bound for the local market will be built in the brand’s plant in Lafayette, Indiana. MIP deputy chairman and managing director Glenn Tan also shared last year that the 2021 Subaru Evoltis could be priced below Php 4 million.
The Evoltis will be the largest vehicle in Subaru PH’s model lineup
The 2021 Evoltis is set to be the largest vehicle in Subaru PH model lineup. It can seat up to seven individuals and could come with features like 19 cup and bottle holders, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the car brand’s EyeSight safety suite. The X-Mode feature could also be included in the local-spec 2021 Subaru Evoltis.
Under the hood, the 2021 Subaru Evoltis could come with a 2.4-liter turbocharged boxer engine that delivers 260 hp and 377 Nm of torque. The engine is connected to a Lineartronic continuously variable transmission (CVT).
The Evoltis is coming soon in PH market
Subaru PH has also launched a microsite for individuals who are interested in the 2021 Evoltis. The car brand is giving away a special limited-edition Evoltis watch for the first 50 registrants who will purchase the seven-seater crossover SUV.
In a report published by Carguide.ph, the 2021 Subaru Evoltis will be launched in the Philippines on April 12. The report added that the Evoltis could come with a sticker price of Php 3,480,000.
