The Outback Black & Ivory gets a new black paint finish known as Crystal Black Silica, which is mated to full LED headlights and 18-inch alloy wheels. In contrast, the cabin is finished in white-like ivory leather with black highlights on the dashboard.

In terms of equipment, the Outback Black & Ivory is kitted out with Subaru’s EyeSight collision avoidance system – the two cameras positioned at the top of the windscreen enable features like automatic emergency braking.

Elsewhere, the car boasts heated front seats, a power tailgate, a rear view camera, plus Subaru’s Starlink infotainment system complete with satellite navigation. The Outback’s off-road credentials are boosted by selectable driving modes and hill descent control.

While the Outback’s standard line-up is three cars strong, the Black & Ivory specification will be offered on two versions – and it's the entry-level 2.0-litre diesel manual that misses the cut. Prices begin at £33,545 for the 2.5i petrol with a Lineartonic CVT gearbox, while the 2.0-litre diesel is also available with the CVT transmission from £35,545.
