Freelander Triumphs In Alliance & Leicester UK Car Price Depreciation Report

Land Rover Freelander HSE


The Land Rover Freelander’s outstanding residual value performance has earned it the top spot in the Alliance & Leicester (A&L) value retention table for the second year running.

The Alliance & Leicester 2003 Car Price Depreciation Report showed that the vehicle retained 79.6% of its value after three years of ownership, beating rivals from categories ranging from small cars to MPVs.

Land Rover UK managing director, Mike Wright, said: "To combine excellent sales volumes and residual value performance is quite an achievement, and the Freelander – as the fastest selling model in Land Rover’s history – has achieved just that. It has good looks, class-leading off-road performance and a price that holds nearly 80% of its value after three years – a formidable combination that is helping the Land Rover brand grow, as the sales increase in 2002 shows."

The Freelander range starts at £15,995 with the 1.8S and tops out at £26,595 with the ES Premium V6, with the fast-selling Serengeti and Kalahari special editions – which have helped the Freelander to its record UK sales year in 2002 – coming in at £16,995 and £18,795 respectively. Both special editions come with air-conditioning, CD players and 17" alloy wheels as standard.
