    What's it like to drive?

    not the most refined car i've owned, but i didn't really buy it for the on road performance. if that was more important to me i would have probably gone for another freelander,but then there's the price.......

    not that easy, it's a big old lump and the length can be quite deceptive in car parks, it sticks out a lot more than a clio so make sure you stop in time!
