The new Freelander 2 range has a choice of 3 engine options all based on the same basic 2.2 litre turbo diesel unit. We start with the cheapest eD4 engine, which is the cheapest and most economical version and has 150 bhp but importantly is two wheel drive only, and also only available as a manual. The second is the TD4 engine, with the same 150 horsepower it is 4 wheel drive, and is also available in manual or automatic. Finally there's the more powerful SD4 engine which as the power levels ramped up to 190 bhp. A massive leap forward from Land Rover, the new Freelander 2 is a tremendously versatile machine, both on and off road, and has made big strides in both style and quality. No longer a cheap alternative to cars such as the Toyota Rav4 or Nissan X-Trail, it now competes and wins against its key luxury rival, the BMW X3, and has instantly become the must-have junior off roader. The new Freelander 2 goes back to the top of the class.
The new 2014 Land Rover Freelander 2 has matured into a much more refined cruiser, well capable of matching the rest in the class. It can comfortably smooth over even the lumpiest roads, and is well beyond the competition should you decide to venture off road. All but the base model S get the Terrain Response system, allowing progress over any surface, should it venture further than the supermarket car park. On road handling is crisp, with a little body roll, and steering is accurate, if a little light.
Land Rover is making leaps and bounds on the reliability front, with the new 2014 Freelander being built in the same Halewood factory as the Jaguar X-Type was, which has won the top award for quality of any plant in Europe, beating all the German competition.

Making the most of the ‘Range Rover Sport’ family looks, the new Land Rover Freelander 2014 model has moved several steps upmarket over the last model. There is now no three door, soft top or commercial version, and no smaller 1.6 or 1.8 petrol. The first popular spec on the 2014 version is the GS. The mid range XS, and the top spec HSE which is fully loaded, if a little expensive.
The commanding driving position gives a great view of the road, and the seats have a huge amount of adjustment. Boot space is ok, if not best in class, and the back seats will fold flat. Cabin quality in the 2014 Freelander has been vastly improved over the original and is now very upmarket, with high quality fixtures and fittings, again strongly reminiscent of its bigger brother, the Range Rover Sport.
