Great little 'Landie

ReviewAfter reviewing nearly every small SUV, I thought the new Land Rover Freelander was the easy choice. Only a few thousand more than comparably-equipped Escape or Liberty but with features neither of them had, like traction control, steptronic transmission, and hill descent control. On road handling is simply awesome - this thing feels like a European sports car. Off road, it still feels like a mountain goat. I also love the quirky interior layout. It is refreshingly different from other vehicles on the road and really reminds you that you have a Land Rover.
Best FeaturesAdvanced transmission and off-road features. High level of included equipment (optional on most competitors). Ride and handling comfort. Exterior styling and Land Rover image.
Worst FeaturesLower the driver's seat 1-2 inches and also extend the tilt higher - I am 5"11 and feel too tall inside. Add option for electronic compass and exterior temperature gauge.
