The Land Rover Freelander 2 has been given a fresh new look including LED lighting on certain models.
Exterior design details have been revamped for an integrated and co-ordinated appearance, including more contemporary lights front and rear using the latest LED technology and a new signature graphic in the front running lights. The XS model gains all-new 17-inch alloy wheels and an enhanced bodystyling pack.
Interior features include new central console, 7-inch colour touch-screen with enhanced audio systems from Meridian and optional satellite navigation. The Terrain Response dial has been replaced by switches and a shutter reveals additional storage space. There is new instrument cluster with a 5-inch screen displaying primary vehicle-related information, such as temperature and fuel levels, gear positions and Terrain Response mode which sits between the dials.
The navigation system is now powered by a faster hard drive-based system which comes with all the features the customer would expect such as ECO Route planning, Dynamic Zoom, Visual Lane guidance, POI (Point of Interest) management and repeat TMC guidance. You can also manage waypoints and store locations as well as POIs by name.
