A new Freelander derivative, the 1.8 XEi Special Edition, is out now at Land Rover dealerships throughout the UK, available from £16,995 for the 3 door, and £18,995 for the 5 door.
The XEi includes eye-catching 17" Freedom alloy wheels and front fog lights as well as a CD player and air conditioning as standard, and for a limited period, metallic paint. This comes in addition to the Freelander's pioneering Hill Descent Control and Electronic Traction Control off-road technologies.
The Freelander's full-time 4x4 system also translates into on-road driving benefits, particularly where conditions turn treacherous – in snow, heavy rain, or when hitting slippery patches on tarmac.
Commenting on the Special Edition, Land Rover UK managing director Phil Popham, stated: "Land Rover's best-seller is now an even more attractive buy with the introduction of the XEi. With its off-road prowess and pioneering technology the Freelander has never been so well equipped at such an attractive price."
