Freelander ups specification and price

LAND Rover has increased the price and improved the specification of its Freelander range. A spokesman said: 'The Xi models have gone up £275 in price but they now have extra specification worth more than £900. This includes air conditioning, 15-inch alloy wheels, six-speaker stereo, four-channel ABS, four-wheel electronic traction control and hill descent control.'

From October, the price of the range-topping XE models rises by almost £2,000 in the three-door range but just £550 for five-door models. Standard specification will include air conditioning, 16-inch alloy wheels, mud-flaps and roof rails on five-door models and leather seats.

Price increases begin with the three-door 1.8i softback/hardback which goes up from to £16,995 on the road (previously £16,575) while the 2.0di version goes up from to £17,995 (£17,575). At the top of the range, the three-door 1.8XEi rises to £20,695 (£18,375) and the five-door 1.8XEi is £22,995 (£21,425). The Freelander Commercial stays at £17,300 for the 1.8i and £18,300 for the 2.0di.
