Vehicle2002 Land Rover Freelander S 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewMy wife and I happened upon the Freelander in the 2002 Vancouver Auto Show. The deal clincher occured when we test- drove through a demanding off-road track - it blew the other mini-SUV competition (RAV4, CRV, Escape) away. Then the on-road handling was also extremely impressive, hugging the road on fairly tight turns (although not as good as the Audi A4 or BMW 325i but better than the mini-SUV competition). The ride is quiet and very comfortable. We did ourselves a favour and got the wood trim, which greatly improved the appearence of the dash. More detailed review after driving it for a month.
Best FeaturesOn road and off-road handling. Comfortable and commanding driving position. Standard features like: AC, ABS brakes, power-locks, anti-theft system, steptronic.
Worst FeaturesMore HP (about 25 more would be nice). Better quality interior materials. Need front centre arm rest. Side air bags.
