KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What is the price of the 2022 Subaru Forester with EyeSIght?

    The 2022 Forester 2.0i-S EyeSight retails for P2.68 million.
  • What are the improvements of the EyeSight 4.0 found in the 2022 Forester?

    EyeSight 4.0 has been added new three new features: Autonomous Emergency Steering, Lane Centering Function, and Lane Departure Prevention.
  • What are the prices of the 2022 BRZ MT and AT variants?

    The 2022 BRZ is priced at P2.4 million for the MT variant and P2.5 million for the BRZ AT.
  • The Forester is now equipped with EyeSight 4.0, Driver Monitoring System, and improved X-Mode with Hill Descent Control. The second generation of the BRZ is even sportier, even sleeker, and even more enjoyable to drive. 

    Subaru’s EyeSight is now more intuitive than ever. Boasting innovative stereo cameras, EyeSight gets an upgrade with new features. 

    EyeSight 4.0’s Pre-Collision Braking now covers even more traffic scenarios at intersections, thanks to its improved stereo cameras with coverage that has almost doubled laterally (from left to right) as well as vertically. 

    EyeSight 4.0 now includes nine features, of which three are new, Autonomous Emergency Steering, Lane Centering Function and Lane Departure Prevention, while Pre-Collision Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control have been improved.

    Autonomous Emergency Steering helps steer the Forester away from a vehicle or obstacle in front to avoid an accident (up to 80kph). 

    The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system now has a Lane Centering Function. This helps to steer the 2022 Forester, keeping it in the middle of the lane, whether the road is straight or slightly curved. This is in addition to the existing feature of the ACC that helps drivers in highway traffic, by keeping the new Forester at a safe distance from the vehicle in front, helping the driver to slow down or speed up automatically. 

    When the vehicle is traveling at 60kph and above, the Lane Departure Prevention nudges the steering wheel slightly towards the inside of the 2022 Forester’s lane when it detects that the driver is about to cross the lane markings. 

    The improved X-Mode complements Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system to allow Forester owners to drive more confidently, especially on uneven surfaces or challenging inclines. Drivers can select between ‘Snow/Dirt’ and ‘Deep Snow/Mud’ to suit the driving situation.

    The improved X-Mode Auto Restore switches to "standby" when the vehicle speed exceeds 40kph, and subsequently comes back on when the speed drops below 35kph. Previously, X-Mode would deactivate at 40kph and had to be reactivated manually if needed. 

    The 2022 Forester boasts a brand new dynamic exterior with a more aggressive front grille, redesigned lamps and restyled 18-inch wheels, fueling the inspiration for greater adventure.
    The new Forester’s suspension has been retuned to make the ride even smoother and the handling even better. 

    As for the 2022 Subaru BRZ (an acronym for Boxer, Rear-wheel drive, Zenith) delivers a fun drive in the spirit of the first-generation model, but with more power, greater performance, sportier handling, a sleeker design, and extra peace of mind on the road with Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology (for the BRZ automatic variant).

    Mounted up front the 2022 BRZ is a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder Boxer engine, which sends 237ps and 250Nm to the rear wheels. 

    The 2022 BRZ's six-speed automatic transmission is quicker than before and has an improved Sport mode for a more exciting drive. In addition, the electronic throttle has been tuned to make the engine respond to the accelerator more progressively at high rpm levels, making it easier for the driver to control the flow of power when exiting a corner. 

    Compared to the previous-generation BRZ, the coupe's two-door body is only slightly heavier than before (plus 10 kilograms), so the BRZ boxer’s bigger output dramatically improves the coupe’s power-to-weight ratio for much punchier acceleration.

    With a six-speed manual, the 2022 BRZ is able to accelerate from a standstill to 100 kph in just 6.3 seconds, while the six speed automatic BRZ can do the sprint at 6.8 seconds.

    The 2022 BRZ also achieves a shorter braking distance from 100 kph to a complete stop, even sharper handling through a slalom, with less body roll while cornering and better traction.
