The base-model 2016 Subaru Forester 2.5i with a manual transmission will be priced from $23,245 including destination while a CVT will be available for $1,000 additional.

Stepping up to the 2016 Subaru Forester Premium will cost $26,145 while the CVT will only be $500 more on that model. Pricing on the Forester Limited CVT will start from $29,645 while the Forester Touring CVT will be $31,645.

    Parts here in Philippines are no where to be found. A simple pin bulb for your map light needs to be ordered from Japan. Untill you guys fit up your act on the parts and service issue here, you will never bet Toyota, Honda and the other local brands here. Sure, i do own a Subaru Forester 2008 and would like to buy the 2016 Forester but i guess i do not want to experience the problems of your parts. Good luck.
