Nealy seven years after leaving Indonesia, Subaru is set to return to the country under the distributorship of a different company.

Back then, Subaru was represented by PT Motor Image Indonesia (MII), but the company exited Indonesia after running into price approval issues.

But that will soon change, as our colleagues over at Autofun reported that Subaru will be returning to Indonesia later this year, under PT Plaza Auto Mega – Subaru’s new distributor for the country. Plaza Auto also is also a dealer for Toyota and MINI under Plaza Toyota and Plaza MINI, respectively.

According to PT Plaza Chief Operating Officer, Arie Christopher Setiadharma, Subaru will resume its operations in Indonesia by May or June 2021. The first step is setting up a service centre for existing Subaru owners.

The first service centre will be located at Plaza Subaru in Alam Sutra, South Tangerang. Over the next two years, Arie mentioned that Subaru Indonesia has plans to open new outlets in Jakarta, Bandung, and Surabaya.

Apart from opening a service centre, Arie told AutoFun that the company is working to introduce Subaru models that suit the requirements of Indonesian customers. The new line-up will also comply with Indonesian homologation regulations.
