Here’s the first ever Land Rover NOT designed to go off-road! Bosses have released these official pictures of the facelifted Freelander, with fresh looks, a revised diesel engine and a new fuel-saving two-wheel-drive option. The front-driven Freelander, badged eD4, will go on sale just ahead of the Range Rover Evoque, which will also be offered with twowheel drive. And the former will be the most efficient Land Rover ever, returning 47.2mpg and emitting 158g/km of CO2. This is an important step for the brand, with two-wheeldrive models now accounting for 23 per cent of SUV sales. The step up in efficiency isn’t only a result of the new transmission, though. The Freelander also gets a more frugal version of the 2.2-litre diesel engine, with a choice of power outputs. Buyers specifying the two-wheel drive eD4 and 4WD TD4 get a 148bhp unit with a six-speed manual box and stop-start as standard.

Those wanting more power can go for the flagship 4WD SD4. This delivers 187bhp – a hike of nearly 30bhp over the outgoing rangetopper. This is mated to an automatic box as standard, although the self-shifter will be offered as a £1,515 option on the TD4. A revised front bumper with new foglamp bezels, a new finish to the front grille and updated lights front and rear give the SUV a fresh look. Plus, three new colour schemes have been added to the options list – Kosrae Green, Baltic Blue and Fuji White – along with new 18 and 19-inch alloy wheel designs. Inside, the instrument dials are revised, and there are four new seat styles, with the option of a Premium Pack that brings leather trim. The new Freelander TD4 and SD4 go on sale from the end of next month, ranging from £21,695 for the TD4 S to £35,510 for the SD4 HSE. Prices of the 2WD car have yet to be confirmed, but it’s likely to cost around £20,000 at launch in January.
