2018 Subaru Forester 2.5i Premium Black Edition Specs

Subaru Forester

The Premium Black Edition looks menacing in its all-black attire and gives you the sense that there’s more to the car than meets the eye. However, the changes made to the Black Edition are more than skin deep. The interior gets some welcomed added features over and above the Premium, such as bigger wheels and adaptive LED headlights that, according to the IIHS, puts it in Top Safety Pick territory, and manual-mode paddle shifters for the CVT gearbox that are usually only featured on the turbo models
