Land Rover dealerships across the UK will open their doors this weekend (28-29 April) to showcase the latest addition to the Freelander 2 range – the 2.2-litre diesel automatic.
Customers interested in purchasing a Freelander 2 will have the opportunity to test the latest model, which features the same six-speed automatic transmission as the 3.2-litre i6 petrol Freelander 2, complete with Land Rover’s CommandShift for manual sequential gearchanging and a sports mode for more spirited driving. It is powered by the all-new 160 PS 2.2-litre four-cylinder engine and has a combined average fuel consumption of 33.2 mpg.
In addition, customers will have the unique opportunity to indulge their adventurous sides by entering a prize draw for a chance to win a ten-day trip for two to Australia or one of 200 half-day off-road driving sessions at a UK Land Rover Experience Centre.
“Since the launch of the Freelander 2 petrol and diesel manual models at the end of last year, demand has been really encouraging. The launch of the new diesel automatic now completes the range and offers our customers more choice,” commented Andy Griffiths, Land Rover UK marketing director.
Prices for the Freelander 2 TD4 Automatic start from £22,330 on the road. The Freelander 2 is already a multi-award winner, picking up the BBC Top Gear SUV of the Year and What Car? Best Compact 4x4 awards and has also recently become the only compact SUV to be awarded the maximum five star rating for Adult Occupant Protection by the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP).
As with all models in our product range, a cost for offsetting the carbon emissions for the first 45,000 miles is included in the on-the-road price. Administered by Climate Care, an independent provider, the programme ensures that the average amount of CO2 produced by a Land Rover is offset by investments in a mixed portfolio of projects, including renewable energy, technology change and energy efficiency initiatives.Published 24 April 2007
