Land Rover Freelander 2
With the first Freelander failing to measure up to the usual Land Rover standard, the Freelander came back with a vengeance and delivered everything (and more), restoring consumers faith in the brand.
At the beginning the Freelander 2 only used a 6-speed automatic with sports shift, however the company listened to their audience and introduced a 6-speed manual in 2011.
The Freelander is breathtaking on the road, smooth, comfortable and handles beautifully. Moving towards summer, this vehicle will be a dream for those family road trips (lets be honest who doesn’t like more space)!
