Land Rover has launched the 2013 Freelander 2 in India at a price tag of Rs 38.67 lakh and Rs 43.92 (ex-showroom, Mumbai) for the 150PS and 190PS respectively. The locally built SUV gets minor upgrades on the outside and inside. 

 

Upfront the Freelander 2 gets all-new LED daytime running headlights and chrome-finish on the fog lamps. At the back, the taillights get Land Rover’s typical twin-circular theme. Aside from these cosmetic changes, the Freelander 2 also gets three new colours and 17-inch alloy wheels on the top-spec HSE variant. 

 

Step inside and you will be graced by a revised dash with fewer buttons (so much so that it get keyless start!) and an electric parking brake. Further, the Terrain Response system dial gets replaced by a switch. Making the feature list longer, the Freelander 2 now sports a 7-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation system and a Meridian sound system, and a rear view camera as standard fitment.

On the mechanical front, the Freelander 2 will continue to host the same 2.2-litre common-rail turbo diesel powerplant producing 150PS and 190PS and is mated to a six-speed transmission. 

 

Rohit Suri, Vice President, Jaguar Land Rover India, said, “The Freelander 2 has proved to be extremely popular with Indian customers and this new model brings a more premium look and feel to the overall driving experience. This is another step forward for the Freelander 2, where outstanding standard equipment levels, superb design, safety and all-terrain capability continue to set the standards in this class.” 

 

While the upgraded SUV looks great, the Rs 38.67 lakh and Rs 43.92 asking price still is a tad too steep when compared to its competitors.
