Land Rover Freelander 2 Black and White Limited Edition announced
And it’s more than £1,200 cheaper than the current entry-level Freelander.
A special edition Land Rover Freelander 2 has been introduced – and it's more than £1,200 cheaper than the current entry-level Freelander.
The Freelander Black and White Limited Edition is offered from £22,495 and is powered by the eD4 version's 148bhp 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel engine. Only 600 will be made and all are based on the recently updated Freelander 2.
The additional equipment sees 17-inch alloy wheels, gloss black exterior detailing and privacy glass. Inside, there's Bluetooth as standard and a rear load cover, both of which are normally optional extras.
It's cheaper than the S model it's based on, but has all the S's equipment, which means it also comes with push-button start, full electric windows, air-conditioning and an eight-speaker audio system with DAB digital radio. Safety equipment includes seven airbags.
While the eD4 is front-wheel drive with a manual transmission only, there's also a TD4 version with all-wheel drive. It has the same 148bhp 2.2-litre turbodiesel and is available from £23,495 for the six-speed manual, a saving of £1,005 compared with the S TD4's regular list price, but you can also choose an automatic transmission, which is priced at £24,995. This represents a saving of £1,010 over the S model.
Every Black and White Limited Edition comes with stop-start to save fuel. The eD4 has the lowest running costs, with a claimed economy return of 47.1mpg and emissions of 158g/km. The TD4 with the manual transmission has figures of 45.6mpg and 165g/km of CO2.
There is a catch, however: you can only have the value-packed Freelander 2 in Santorini Black or Fuji White – hence the name.
