LAND ROVER FREELANDER UPDATES
Minor styling changes and new kit for 2013 model
Revised headlights and taillights adopt the inevitable LED technology, with the front headlamps now including a signature daytime running graphic as per the Range Rover Evoque. Further minor changes include a brighter finish for the front grille and fog lamp surrounds and new wheel designs for different models in the Freelander 2 line up.
A new five-inch screen sits between the dials on the instrument panel, displaying information such as temperature and fuel levels, gear choice and Terrain Response mode, now controlled by steering wheel toggle switches rather than a dial. A new reversing camera includes 'Hitch Assist', a graphic showing the position of the tow ball for manoeuvring up to a trailer.
Three new colours have been added to the range - Aintree Green, Havana and Mauritius Blue - along with two new trim variants: Dynamic and HSE Lux. The Dynamic model includes a body kit and gloss black grille surrounds together with new 19-inch 10-spoke alloy wheel, whilst the HSE LUX adds leather seats and 19-inch diamond turned wheels.
Drivetrains remain unchanged, with a choice of two different diesel engines.
The new Freelander 2 will be unveiled at the Moscow International Motor Show on 29th August.
