Whitley, UK--May 14, 2014: The Land Rover Freelander is undergoing a comprehensive upgrade this summer, reinforcing the appeal of a model that is still growing in popularity. Capitalising on increasing demand for the compact SUV, new equipment specifications are being introduced that offer customers both extra features and even greater value for money.

The new range, on sale from early June, will feature a new three-grade line-up, headed by the Metropolis edition, replacing the HSE as the most luxurious and desirable Freelander yet.

Building on Freelander’s customer appeal including versatility and Land Rover’s legendary capability from the existing HSE LUX model, the Metropolis benefits from a wealth of sophisticated standard features to increase style, add functionality and make life on board even more comfortable.

They include electrically adjustable (eight-way for driver, six-way for passenger) front seats upholstered in premium Windsor leather; touchscreen-controlled satellite navigation, an 825W meridian surround sound system, panoramic sunroof and 19-inch diamond-turned wheels. The manifest also extends to Xenon headlights with Land Rover’s signature LED daytime running lights, heated steering wheel, luxury carpet mats, a reversing camera, premium metallic paint and gloss black interior detailing.

Metropolis is joined in the range by the new SE and SE Tech models which respectively replace the GS and XS designations. SE grade, the new entry point to Freelander, builds on the established GS specification with the addition of a heated windscreen, front fog lights, front and rear centre armrests, 18-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels and the Design Pack combination of colour-matched bumpers and sills. This is all provided in addition to heated leather seats, climate control, Bluetooth, rear parking sensors and heater, power-folding door mirrors.

Going even further, the new SE Tech models add a more powerful, 380W Meridian audio system, touchscreen-controlled navigation, automatic headlights and wipers and 19-inch 10-spoke alloys.

Freelander’s powertrain options have also been rationalised to offer the TD4 engine with manual transmission in SE and SE Tech versions and the SD4 unit with automatic gearbox across the complete range.
