IMPORTANT: Read the information at the bottom of this page before going ahead with any car purchase.
The practical Land Rover Freelander 2 has been with us since 2006. It's bigger than the original and comes with a powerful 2.2-litre diesel engine, producing 150bhp.
Fuel economy has been a problem in the past, with one model measuring just 32.1mpg combined in our tests. But recent improvements mean that Land Rover now claims models fitted with its Stop/Start system should be more frugal.
£2,350 off most efficient Freelander 2
The most efficient engine in the Freelander 2 range is the 2.2-litre eD4. The Stop/Start system comes as standard, and fuel economy of 47.1mpg and and CO2 emissions of 158g/km are promised.
Clearview, Cold Climate and Design packs are included in the HSE Lux spec model, meaning you get goodies such as front fog lamps and body-coloured bumpers. You'd normally have to pay £36,500 for this model but it's currently on offer through Autobytel for £34,142.
4x4 Freelander 2 for £24,275
For more adventurous drivers, or those living in rural areas, the four-wheel drive TD4 makes the most sense. Although claimed fuel economy drops to 40.4mpg for the automatic and 45.6mpg for the manual, overall comfort and performance remain impressive.
You can pick up an automatic TD4 through Motorlogix for £24,275 - saving you £1,874. The model on offer is in GS spec, so a DAB radio and Bluetooth telephone system are included in the price.
If you prefer a manual gearbox, head over to Discounted-new-cars - a discount of £2,377 is offered on the higher-spec TD4 XS, dropping the total cost to £27,617.

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.
