Whitley, UK, 14 May 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
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
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-
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.
