On the inside there's brown leather seats, accompanied by brown leather upholstery on the doors and around the cabin. Tech includes a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, sat-nav and Hill Descent Control. 

Subaru's X-Mode system also features on the Special Edition, which manages the car’s power, torque, brakes and drivetrain to maintain traction on slippery surfaces. The car's off-roading capabilities are further improved by 220mm of ground clearance and short overhangs to negotiate steep approach and departure angles.
