The new Landrover Freelander is a classy and desirable 4x4 that is very capable off-road. Every Landrover Freelander uses a 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine, but you can choose between outputs of 148- and 188bhp. A six-speed automatic gearbox is standard on the 188bhp model, and an option on the 148bhp unit, which comes with a six-speed manual as standard.
The manual versions have a stop-start system that reduces fuel consumption and the CO2 emissions. If you opt for the two wheel drive versions they are more efficient and more company car tax-friendly. Every Landrover Freelander gets alloy wheels, air-conditioning and a CD player, while GS trim adds climate- and cruise control, rear parking sensors and Land Rover’s Terrain Response system. The XS spec brings electric front seats, satellite-navigation and a better stereo. The HSE models also come with a CD multichanger and full leather upholstery. The interior of the Landrover Freelander has plenty of head and leg room, the boot is on the small size but there are 60/40 split rear seats that will lay quite flat.
Prices for the new Landrover Freelander start at approximately £21,995.
