Facelifted Land Rover Freelander 2 revealed

Six years after its debut, the Land Rover Freelander 2 has been substantially revised inside and out.

Six years after its debut, the Land Rover Freelander 2 has been substantially revised inside and out. The updated car will be shown to the public first at the Moscow Motor Show on 29 August, and will go on sale in the UK in October.

The Freelander 2 did receive a minor round of updates in 2011, including the addition of a two-wheel-drive model, and some minor styling updates. However, this time, the changes go much further.

LED lights feature front and rear, and there are three new colours to choose from: Aintree Green, Havana and Mauritius Blue. XS models now benefit from a different 17-inch alloy wheel design as standard.

Inside, the Freelander 2 gains a new centre console, which includes a five-inch information screen, while space between the front seats has been increased by replacing the conventional manual handbrake with an electronic one.

Voice control for a number of vehicle functions is another new addition, while higher-spec models now benefit from the Meridian 380W or 17-speaker 825W stereos also seen in the Range Rover Evoque.

The model range has also been revised. The entry-level S has cloth seats as standard, while the GS gets full leather trim and the XS gets the 380W Meridian stereo.

The newly added Dynamic model has a special bodykit and 19-inch alloys, while HSE models now feature improved wood trim, a panoramic sunroof and the 825W stereo. Top-spec HSE Lux models boast higher-quality leather on the seats and unique 19-inch alloys.

The engine range is carried over unchanged, as is the Freelander 2’s impressive go-anywhere offroad ability.
