We know special editions aren't really so special anymore, but usually automakers give a name to their marketing gimmicks. It tends to be more effective that way. But Subaru has apparently decided to do without one as they offer a special edition of the new Outback to British customers. As we reported from the Detroit show floor, the Outback and Legacy were both revised for 2007 with new features and an updated look. This special version comes packed with ???1000 worth of options at no additional charge over the sticker price of the ordinary Outback 2.5 SE on which it's based.

The package included a Momo leather steering wheel with built-in audio controls, an ivory leather interior and rear air-conditioning vents. The special Outback is available in either Diamond Grey Metallic or Dark Green Mica with Urban Grey bodycladding and bumpers.

Something for nothing – you can't beat that.

      Will be getting a 2007 Outback wagon. Want it with flat 6 and all options. My only choice is LL Bean edition. What's up with that? Does Subaru get a kickback from LL Bean for every one they sell. Will have to pay to have badging taken off without damaging the paint. Still will be left with embossed front seat covers I can do nothing about. Yea I don't wear t-shirts with logos either.

      Wonder if they have taking the creaking and rattling out of this version? Dang, I love my 07 Outback XT but it sounds like a bucket of bolts.

      It's still a warmed over 1990. Look at the greenhouse and other basic parts, pretty much unchanged in 17 years. How about something a lot fresher? C'mon Toyota, do it!
