What's the used Land Rover Freelander 4x4 like?
SUVs were already growing in popularity by the time the first-generation Land Rover Freelander went on sale in 1999. However, it was this Solihull-built product that pushed the idea of a ‘soft-roader’ to the front and centre of many people’s minds.
Effortlessly stylish, it swiftly became the best-selling SUV or 4x4 across Europe, and held that position for several years, despite concerns over build quality and reliability.
In 2003, the Freelander was given a significant facelift and a number of detail improvements that boosted quality levels, plus it brought new options, colours and equipment.
These post-2003 cars are distinguished by their Range Rover-style projector headlights, as opposed to the plain, square lamps of the original car, and their body-coloured rather than unpainted bumpers.
