Land Rover completed half a decade in India and to mark the phenomenal landmark, the British company – now owned by homegrown Tata Motors, launched the special edition Land Rover Freelander 2. The premium SUV carries a price tag of Rs. 44.41 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai) and will come to the Landrover showrooms in very limited numbers.
The limited numbered Sterling Edition Freelander 2 carries many cosmetic changes but mechanically, the car has been left untouched.
Changes include new 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels with anthracite finish, front grille painted in a darker shade, fender and side vents, tailgate spoiler, front and rear apron, side claddings and a chrome-plated exhaust tip. The Freelander 2 definitely looks sportier with all the upgrades it has received with the Sterling Edition.
Powering the car is the same engine that also works inside the normal edition. The 2.2-liter turbocharged inline-4 diesel burner than makes a maximum of 150 PS @ 4,000rpm along with maximum torque of 420 Nm @ 1,750 rpm. The power goes to all the wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission. The premium SUV stands at a length of 4,500 mm, width of 2,195 mm and height of 1,740 mm, the ground clearance stands at 210mm.
Rohit Suri, VP, Jaguar-Land Rover, said, “it will further endear the hugely popular model to our young and sophisticated customers looking to own an exclusive Land Rover with enhanced sporty looks.”
The Freelander 2 has remained one of the most popular Land Rover cars mainly because of the comfort and price tag it comes with.
Globally, the company has revealed Discover Sport, which will replace the Freelander 2 around the globe. The Sterling Edition Freelander 2 could be the last sport version of the car to be launched ever in India before it gets replaced by Discovery Sport somewhere next year.
