Freelander is ideally suited to upmarket 4x4 buyers who want serious off-road capabilities in a compact package. It may be Land Rover’s entry-level model, but it still wears the best badge in the business. It’s the finest off-road performer for its category and age and although fuel economy is a little eye watering around town, it’s a decent car to drive around town.

Freelander has been on sale since 1997, but this 2003 facelift gave it a smoother look with new headlamps and an upgraded interior. As well as the five-door station wagon, Freelander is also available as a three-door, sold as Hardback and Softback.
