Freelander White & Black launched

Land Rover's Freelander 2 is now available for less than 20,000, with the launch of its 'White & Black' special editions.

On sale in January 2010, and priced from 19,945, the entry-level models might be cheaper, but they don't scrimp on equipment. A keyless starter button, 17-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass and a load space cover all come as standard.

Available in Alaska White or Santorini Black, the special editions also get an Ebony cloth interior.

Engine stop-start technology
Freelander 2 'White & Black' models have a 2.2-litre diesel engine with a six-speed manual gearbox. Land Rover's stop-start technology is also in place to switch off the engine while the car is stationary, which will help it achieve average fuel economy of 42.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 179g/km.

Freelander 2 Sport
Also new for 2010 are two sportily styled versions of the Freelander 2 Sport. Both will get the 2.2-litre diesel engine, 19-inch alloy wheels and a rear spoiler, plus colour-matched exterior trim, door handles and mirror casings.

The standard model is available in Santorini Black and Lago Grey, with a cloth interior, while models fitted with a sports pack are available only in Lago Grey and with a leather interior.

On sale in January 2010, prices for the Freelander 2 Sport start from 26,695.
