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. A V6 was also offered.
This car is the last of the 537,596 first generation Freelanders that were produced, the last 3-door model and the last Freelander to be manufactured at Land Rover’s Solihull plant.
