Land Rover introduced a new Land Rover Freelander Metropolis edition at the Royal Windsor Horse Show. The new range, on sale from early June, will feature a new three-grade line-up, headed by the Metropolis edition, replacing the HSE as the most luxurious and desirable Freelander yet.
Based on Freelander’s customer appeal including versatility and Land Rover’s legendary capability from the existing HSE LUX model, the metropolis benefits from a wealth of sophisticated standard features to increase style, add functionality and make life on board even more comfortable.
The vehicle includes electrically adjustable (eight-way for driver, six-way passenger) front seats upholstered in premium windsor leather; touchscreen-controlled satellite navigation, an 825W meridian surround sound system, panoramic sunroof and 19-inch diamond-turned wheels. The manifest also extends to Xenon headlights with Land Rover’s signature LED daytime running lights, heated steering wheel, luxury carpet mats, a reversing camera, premium metallic paint and gloss black interior detailing.
The vehicle gets two engine options- the SD4 and the TD4. The SD4 engine is a 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine, mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox, which produces a top power output of 187bhp and a peak torque of 420Nm. The TD4 is a 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine, coupled to a six-speed manual gearbox, which churns out a maximum power output of 148bhp and a peak torque of 420Nm. This model is equipped with new xenon headlamps with daytime running lights, new carpet mats, heated steering, metallic paint, reversing camera and few more.
The base Land Rover Freelander SE TD4 manual costs £27,765 (Rs 27.61 lakh), while the top spec Mertropolis edition is priced at £35,995 (Rs 35.80 lakh).
