New Subaru Outback Black Line From Russia With Love

A new Subaru Outback Black Line surfaces in Russia. See what sets this black beauty apart and why you won’t see it in the US.


Subaru Corporation is bringing a new trim to the Subaru Outback called the Black Line but it’s only being sent to Russian customers, the rest of the world can only look and not touch. If you remember the James Bond movie “From Russia With Love” starring Sean Connery you know where the title came from. Of course James Bond didn’t drive a Subaru Outback in the film, he drove a much sexier 1935 Bentley 3.5 Liter.

Before the 2020 Outback arrives, Subaru brings this new back edition trim for Russian customers. This weekend Subaru celebrates with Subafest 2019, where the Japanese automaker will present the new Black Line version of the Subaru Outback. North American fans aren’t the only ones who know how to put on a Subaru show. This is the tenth year of the Subie festival in Russia.

The new Subaru Outback Black Line gets a few exterior and interior upgrades over the standard trim. When the new Outback arrives in showrooms, customers will see it with unique Black alloy wheels, roof rails, grille and fog lights on the outside to emphasize the premium version of the Black Line.

Inside, the Outback will feature a black interior with Black Line logos on the headrests, special leather seats, unique embroidery on the floor mats, and a high-end 10 speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system. In addition, the SUV/Crossover comes with a backup camera lens with a washer to keep it clear of debris when the weather turns bad.

Subaru brings the Black Line to the Premium ES trim level and is available with both the 2.5-liter four-cylinder Boxer engine or the still-available 3.6-liter six-cylinder powerplant. The Black Line, of course, comes in Black Metallic Chrystal Black Silica exterior color and also can be had in Crystal White Pearl.

Subaru says the Outback Black Line will be available starting on October 15 with pre-orders starting September 21 at Subafest 2019 festival and in all dealerships. The price will be 3,159,900 for the 2.5-liter engine and 3,669,900 rubles for the 3.6R trim.

2020 Subaru Outback

Customers in the U.S. won't see this Outback Black Line because this model is made in Japan and US-spec models are only made at the Subaru plant in Lafayette, Indiana. Fans in Russia will have to wait for the all-new 2020 Subaru Outback model. It will show up sometime next year after it makes its dealer launch in the U.S. market starting this month.
