2002 Land Rover Freelander SE 4dr AWD SUV (2.5L 6cyl 5A)


After 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 Features

Advanced 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 Features

Lower 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.
