The new Subaru Evoltis is the car brand's challenger in the premium seven-seater crossover SUV segment. It is currently the largest vehicle produced by Subaru Corporation. It is designed with a bold and composed exterior that features similar design details found on other Subaru vehicles such as the Forester. Stepping inside its generous cabin is a breathtaking experience as it is fitted with modern amenities families or groups of friends will enjoy. The PH-spec 2021 Evoltis is built in Subaru’s plant in Lafayette, Indiana. The Philippines is the only market in the Motor Image Group in Asia to offer the model. The local market’s fascination with seven-seater vehicles is part of the many reasons why the 2021 Evoltis is available here. Subaru Philippines is offering only one variant of the 2021 Evoltis, the 2.4 Touring EyeSight, which comes with a sticker price of Php 3,480,000. It’s available in five colors: Crystal White Pearl, Ice Silver Metallic, Crystal Black Silica, Crimson Red Pearl, and Abyss Blue Pearl (brand-new color).
The Subaru Evoltis, or known as the Subaru Ascent in the U.S. was launched in 2017 at North American International Auto Show. Because Subaru North America trademarked the name “Ascent,” Subaru Asia opted to use Evoltis for its regional distribution instead.
The new Evoltis marks Subaru’s entry into the seven-seater premium crossover SUV segment. The Evoltis, also known as the Ascent in North America, is the largest vehicle in Subaru’s model lineup. This means that the 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.
