Small inside and lacking a low-range transfer case, the Freelander won't appeal to buyers looking for a seriously capable small SUV, despite the Land Rover name on the hood. Although it handles well on and off the road, a drab interior and sluggish performance leave us questioning whether it's worth the premium price tag.
Hill Descent Control, permanent all-wheel drive, four-wheel independent suspension for good on- and off-road handling.
Tight on cargo space even with rear seats folded, priced at the top of its class, cheap interior materials, V6 engine on the weak side, rear drum brakes.
