Land Rover Freelander 2 S Business Edition in India Details
Land Rover Freelander 2 is by far the most economic Land Rover that is available in the Indian market. The 2S variant of the cheapest Land Rover is now even less expensive owing to a new low cost trim that has been attached to the vehicle. The new model has been named Freelander 2 S Business Edition. The nomenclature comes as a surprise as the car does not look or offer any corporate features.
With the introduction of this model, the Land Rover Freelander 2 will be available in three variants, that include the present ‘S’ trim alongside the SE and the HSE variants. This model replaces the SE variant as the cheapest Land Rover in the Indian market. The SE trim has a price tag of INR 39.19 lakhs. The HSE variant is available for INR 44.42 lakhs. The S Business Edition has been strategically priced at INR 37.11 lakhs. The lowering of cost has come at a price. It follows the philosophy of Audi as they too have cut down on costs with their ‘S’ version of the Q3 SUV by eliminating certain features. The features that have gone missing in the Freelander 2 S are the panoramic sunroof, meridian music system, reverse camera, electrically adjustable front seats and the premium exterior paint. Thankfully no safety features have been compromised. The usual safety features are present which include dynamic stability control, traction control, brake force distribution system, airbags, emergency brake assist, cornering brake control and roll stability control.
The engine power has been compromised. The new engine delivers a peak power output of 147 HP and 420 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission gearbox with CommandShift, which delivers the power to all the four wheels.
