An updated version of the Land Rover Freelander has just been announced - and that means substantial savings on the current model.
The Freelander is practical, with good interior space, but the downside of that is a fairly bulky body that can be hard to park.
Launched in 2006, the second-generation Freelander (aka Freelander 2) remains a real owners' favourite - despite Land Rover's poor reliability overall. We've found some great deals that could save you thousands of pounds on this pricey 4x4.
Save on Freelander 2.2 TD4 XS
The Freelander 2.2 TD4 XS is our top choice model. Its claimed fuel economy of 40.4mpg is average for a car of this size and power. Ultimate performance is perhaps a little lacking, but the Freelander is a heavy car and is perfectly happy with lots of passengers and luggage on board.
Standard spec for this model includes cruise control, front and rear parking sensors and satellite navigation. It is on offer through Discounted-new-cars.com for £28,082 - that's a saving of more than £3,400 off list price.
Over £2,000 off efficient Freelander eD4
If you rack up plenty of miles, then the eD4 diesel engine may be better suited to you. This is the most efficient in the range, with a claimed 47.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 158g/km. The latter figure means it falls into car tax (VED) band G, at £170 a year.
Autobytel.co.uk is offering the Freelander with eD4 engine in HSE spec for £31,477. That's over £2,000 off the £33,650 list price. Well-equipped HSE models get a DAB digital radio and steering wheel mounted audio and cruise controls, plus a host of other driving aids.
Land Rover Freelander for £21,488
Our final deal on the Freelander is for the entry-level S specification version. Available through Nationwide-cars.co.uk, the Freelander TD4 S comes with a £2,211 saving, bringing the total on-the-road price down to £21,488.
Some luxuries are still included, such as the DAB digital radio. However, the 45.6mpg claim is rather wide of the mark; our more realistic tests measured fuel economy at a less impressive 33.6mpg.

Hot Deal hunters please note:
- The car brokers and deals featured are not vetted, endorsed or recommended by Which?. Always check the specifics of the deal so you know exactly what you are getting and who is supplying the car. Make sure all aspects of the deal are confirmed in writing before committing to buy.
- Not all brokers deal in UK sourced vehicles, and this may have an impact on standard equipment and warranty levels.
- The term ‘pre-reg’ or ‘pre-registered’ refers to vehicles that are brand new but already registered with the DVLA. This means that you will appear as the second owner on the V5 registration document.
- Beware of unscrupulous brokers who tell you they will have to retain the V5 registration document for a period of time after your purchase of the car. Vehicles sold this way may be cheap, but there are legal implications, including the risk that you the buyer could be committing a criminal offence when you drive the car, so they should be avoided.
