For The Land Rover Freelander has a smooth ride and a great driving position, and it's highly competent off-road. Land Rover’s desirable image keeps resale values strong.
Against Prices are a little steep, high-speed refinement isn’t great and many rivals provide more rear legroom and boot space.
A classy and desirable 4x4, the Land Rover Freelander is very capable off-road. It’s just a shame it’s not more spacious.

The first choice is which of the two turbodiesel engines to go for. The 148bhp unit comes with a manual gearbox (an auto ’box is a cost option) and the option of two- or four-wheel drive, while the 188bhp model has an automatic as standard.
We’d go for the lower-powered unit with four-wheel drive. The front-wheel driver is cheaper and more economical model in the range, but it’s still not as clean as a BMW X3 and you lose the 4x4’s sensational off-road ability.
Even the entry-level S version is reasonably equipped, although the TD4 XS is the model we’d go for. It comes with climate control and a 7-inch colour touch screen that improves interior functionality and resale potential. Top-spec HSE and HSE Lux versions come with lavish kit, but have price tags to match.
