Subaru to target Iran with Legacy model


TEHRAN, Apr. 10 (Mehr News Agency) -- Another Japanese auto giant is going to situate itself in Iran's import-thirsty auto market this year. The sales of about 2500 Legacy sedans by Subaru are the prelude to this venture on the agenda, the Persian service of ISNA reported on Monday.

The company, the fifth recent importer after Toyota, MB, BMW and Audi, will target the market with 2000cc version of Legacy to rival Toyota Camry in the coming May. Two other SUV-style models, Impreza and Forester, are expected to follow suite in the near future.

Considering the recent ease in the country's import duties, the said auto manufacturers have sold over 10,000 cars in Iran of which Toyota with 5,000, BMW with 3,000, MB with 1,500 and Audi with 1,000 rank one through four.

The price tag on full-option Legacy is estimated at 300 million rials.
