The list of modifications includes revised exterior styling, which features a “sportier and purposeful look”. It also gets two new trim levels, called ‘Dynamic’ and ‘HSE Lux’, the latter of which being the most luxurious in the range. Aside from the visible exterior tweaks, the Freelander 2 also gets a refreshed interior, with a new center console with a 7-inch touchscreen display, rear-view camera and electric parking brake.
As an optional extra, buyers will be able to specify a 17-speaker 825W Meridian surround-sound system which offers a “concert-like experience”. Along with the kit and cosmetic upgrades, the two-wheel drive version of the SUV, called the eD4, achieves an impressive 6.0l/100km (47.1 mpg) and CO2 emissions as low as 158 g/km, giving it hatchback-like levels of fuel efficiency and emissions.
“The Freelander 2’s equipment levels bring a more premium look and feel to the overall driving experience. In addition, our customers continue to benefit from our refined and economical range of diesel engines [. . .] It’s another step forward for the Freelander 2 where outstanding equipment levels, superb design, safety and all-terrain capability continue to set the standards in this class” says John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director
