Subaru (http://www.autoblog.com/make/subaru/) collaborates with outdoor gear company Columbia in other markets, and the latest result is the limited edition 2010 Forester (http://www.autoblog.com/model/forester) X Columbia. This version swaps out the standard steel wheels for 16-inch alloys, and adds fog lights, a roof rack, cargo tray, rear step panel, and a $500 voucher for actual Columbia gear. Not bad, but it's a step down from the 2007 Forester X Columbia, which also got a sunroof and heated seats.

There will be 1,050 examples on offer and they go on sale in Australia beginning Monday, January 4. The "driveaway" price has been announced as $33,990 AUD for the manual ($30,486 USD - note: that's a straight conversion and does not correspond to the car's U.S. price), which is $600 less than the Forester X price on Subaru's Aussie site. Unless we're missing something, that can't be all bad for the country's best-selling crossover.
