Press release

Land Rover today launches the new Freelander 2 SD4 Sport Limited Edition at the Bologna Motor Show.

This Limited Edition brings together the space and practicality of the Freelander 2, with a refreshed interior and exterior design to create a sportier more overt sense of style.

The exterior has been given a striking renewal, with a sophisticated black finish to the grille and the side vents, a new body styling pack which offers cleaner profiling to the front corners, and a choice of three exterior colourways in either Fuji White, Santorini Black or the all-new Firenze Red. A rear spoiler also features, together with 19" Shadow Chrome alloy wheels, body coloured door handles and mirror caps, and privacy glass to further emphasise the dynamic look of this premium limited edition. Front and rear parking sensors will be available as standard.

The interior is available in Ebony Windsor leather with contrast Pimento stitch, or Ebony Napoli leather with matching contrast Windsor leather highlight stripe on the seats. Piano Black fascia finisher also features together with Ebony carpet mats with a contrast edge of either Ivory or Pimento. These design themes, with the contrast colours and unique stripe design offer a distinct and sporty look for the Freelander 2.

The Freelander 2 SD4 Sport is powered by the new state-of-the-art 190PS diesel engine. This Limited Edition (available with automatic transmission only) accelerates from rest to 60mph in 8.7 seconds with an increased top speed of 118mph.

The use of an Intelligent Power Management System (IPMS) provides ‘smart charging’ of the battery by recovering kinetic energy when the vehicle is slowing wherever possible, rather than consuming fuel by charging when the vehicle is accelerating, and in addition to this, the Freelander 2 Sport SD4 Limited Edition is compatible with 10 percent biodiesel rather than five percent. With these improved efficiencies, CO2 emissions are reduced to 185g/km with a corresponding fuel economy benefit.

“The Freelander 2 SD4 Sport Limited Edition offers customers the practicality, performance and efficiency of our best-selling compact SUV with more dramatic, sporty styling and the overall package represents good value for money,” said Colin Green, managing director, Land Rover UK.

The Freelander 2 is currently Land Rover’s best-selling model, with over 215,000 sold globally since its launch in 2006.

Sorry to say but they are right; this freelander is so ugly compared with those other cars. Well, I think they need to figure out what is the reason of why this one is not impressive and ugly.

To be honest the platform of this one is not really impressive, and it is like the other freelander car that’s why I don’t find it very striking.

It maybe looks so simple and ordinary, but I’m still impressed on it for the fact that it is very reliable as an outdoor vehicle and has an impressive and comfortable interior.

I don’t think that it looks ugly on its exterior appearance it maybe looks so simple but not lousy. Well, I’m quite satisfied with its simplicity, but I’m still hoping that it would have a nice engine.

I would never give it a single glance whenever I see this one on market or even on the road. Sorry to say but they are right, this freelander is so ugly compared with those other car. Well I think they need to figure out what is the reason of why this one is not impressive and ugly.

I love the color of this Land Rover Freelander had, to be honest the platform of this one is not really impressive and it is like the other freelander car that’s why I don’t find it very striking.

I’m not happy about the FWD, but if they didn’t change those tail lights, then this facelift was worthless.

It is not kinda great,It is just its only common for an ordinary people use this car,Nothing really attracts me.

In 2011 you do get an autobox, a little extra hp (over the TD4e), slightly larger wheels, some contrasting interior choice, and a new colour grille. But STILL even the top spec 2011 SD4 HSE Auto is only £2,800 more than the 2010 TD4e HSE Manual.

Looks pretty good esp the red and black. Not sure the externals justify the price though, needs more power

I love the LandRover but this limited edition might be limited due the fact that no-one will buy it smiley
