Carrying an improved 2.2 litre diesel engine, the 2011 Freelander 2 offers two power outputs, the 150 hp TD4 and the 190hp SD4. The off-road performance of this model, also a class-leading one due to Terrain ResponseTM, the improved fuel economy, exclusive cabin, and its affordable cost assure a winning package. Based on facts provided by the Parkers cost of motoring tool, the Parkers New Car Awards mark out 'the cars that make your cash go further'. What cost of motoring tool does is help the consumers discover the car's costs (whether it's new or used) taking into consideration all of the costs, including showroom tax, depreciation, servicing, and fuel consumption.
As stated by Kieren Puffett, editor of Parkers, it's the first-rate and roomy interior, undoubted off-road capability, and the up market feel of Land Rover Freelander 2 2.2 which made it win the Parkers' New Car Awards 2011 4x4 category. The 2011 Freelander 2.2 TD4 S now delivers 45mpg, because fuel consumption and lower emissions were improved due to stop/start technology.
Boasting highly competitive running costs, the model is a type of vehicle that makes the car buyer's cash go the furthest. Colin Green, the managing director of Land Rover, noticed that the award which the Freelander has gained, shows that the model features not only outstanding value, but an excellent cost as well.
