Land Rover Freelander

2 Review


When the Freelander 2 was being built, the key features which were considered were that the car must have the looks similar to the Discovery 3 and Range Rover Sport. The damshell hood and the step roof were the exterior features/looks carried forward from the older version of the Freelander 2. The metallic side vents on the car are very sporty which enhance the side profile of this able soft roader. The raised roof and tapering rear pillar add to the sporty character of the Freelander 2.

The wheel arches also add ample muscle to the looks of the Freelander 2 making it look very strong and ready for action. The blacked out rear pillar reminds of the design from the range rover. The high ground clearance at the front and back tells you that this car can go off roads without hesitation. The Land Rover Freelander 2 is not just sporty and appealing to the eye but is also a very safe car to drive in.

It has scored the best in class during the EuroNCAP crash tests. The car is so well engineered that it safeguards the occupants in the maximum possible way during head-on impact. There is a first in class airbag to protect the driver’s thighs as well which proves that such a situation would be less fatal.

The Land Rover Freelander 2 in total gets 7 airbags standard on all variants. Freelander 2 is a very successfully scaled downed version of the full size range rover from the front with its distinctive design. The deep cut crystal like headlamps upfront give maximum road visibility at night and look magnificent in the day as well.

And not to forget, the grill gets the typical Land Rover badging which defines what the quality of the car is. The Freelander 2 has a 4WD system that is more biased towards off-road driving than on-road abilities.

The Freelander 2’s system tries and avoids wheel spin from a stop on all surfaces and this system can work as soon as a 15 degree wheel slip is encountered. The Freelander 2 also gets the very effective terrain response like the Range Rover which has the four preset settings like; General, Grass-Gravel Snow, Mus Ruts and Sand. This terrain response makes driving easier on the road as well as off road. It also controls the throttle as well as the gearbox during unfavourable conditions.

The new Freelander 2 has a more purposeful stance which is more sensible for the Indian conditions. It looks much sportier and sophisticated than the previous models. Also the Freelander 2 has new wheel styles unlike the older version.

The Freelander 2 is one of the most fuel efficient cars of the Land Rover group.

Not only refinement but the Land Rover Freelander 2 also provides with good performance and economy. Al in all, it’s a state-of-the-art LAND ROVER product which is unmatched by other car manufacturers. The transversely mounted engine on the Freelander 2 has various benefits like excellent crash protection, flexibility in front end styling etc. The Freelander 2 in India comes with two variants; the TD4-SE and SD4-HSE.

The Freelander 2 is as refined as a saloon car on road. There is no sluggishness despite of being a diesel and such a huge car. It drives reluctantly as soon as the pedal is pressed and does not disappoint no matter what the drivers preference is.
