New 2018 Subaru Forester Black Edition Get a Few Strokes


Marketing divisions of car producers are constantly trying to attract attention to the brand without much effort. The most frequent option is ‘special editions’ – limited trim levels or modifications of the car, a light stroke of exclusive for an ordinary vehicle. It sounds a bit strange since there are plenty of tuning companies and aftermarket parts for the car to modify, but it works. Since the May of this year, Subaru fans could order Forester with Black Edition package, which adds $1150 to the price of 2.5i Premium trim level.

What is Black Edition? As you could guess by the name, it adds certain black painted elements. For 2018 Forester there are 18-inch alloy rims, tinted glass, combined (leatherette/cloth) interior with silver inserts and even gloss-black dashboard. Aside from color, this package adds paddle shifters which are normally available in better trim levels. The Premium trim level also includes LED headlights, heated mirrors, front seats and nozzles, hill descent control. 2018 Subaru Forester Black Edition price starts at $28,260.

Black Edition has the same 2.5-liter Boxer engine with 4 cylinders, 170 horsepower, 174 ft-lb of torque. The package is available only with the CVT-equipped model.
