The Freelander was the first new LR product for nearly ten years and marked a departure for the company. It was for a new market, estate and MPV drivers searching for a vehicle with more individual character.

The Freelander was available in two body styles, a three-door soft top model with the option of a hardback and a five-door estate. With independent suspension, four-wheel drive, anti-lock brakes and traction control, there was a choice of the 1.8 litre petrol or 2.0 litre diesel, and a V6 was also offered.

This 1.8XEi is the first off the production line and signed by all who worked on the Freelander project.
