The Freelander has missed the major makeover of the rest of the Land Rover family this week — everything from new engines to new luxury and technology in the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Discovery 4 — but the British brand believes it has the chance to take a new angle against the all-new Volvo XC60 and Audi Q5. In introducing the Freelander 2 TD4—3, Land Rover Australia’s marketing and public affairs manager Kevin Goult, de- scribes the model as ‘‘the introduction of e technologies in Australia’’. ‘‘It’s stop-start and the start of our changes. ‘‘It’s also a chance for people who might not have been able to consider a Free- lander in the past.’’ The stop-start system is just what the name says — a computerised system which kills the engine when the vehicle is stopped to save fuel and reduce emissions. The package also includes a green arrow to advise on the best time for an upshift in the six-speed manual gearbox. There are a range of failsafe triggers — like opening the door — and the system also deactivates if the engine is drawing too much power for something like the airconditioning or hill-descent system. Land Rover is taking it easy with the Freelander e, only estimating 40 sales in its first year with most to 25-39 year old city couples whole like the brand and the chance for good economy and 50-plus empty nesters who want to do something green. He promises the new starting price Freelander will be a new value benchmark but refuses to reveal the exact price, or the final specification. It will be an SE-model car but will lose some stuff, including electric front seats. The Freelander e is the first result of a $2 billion development program by Jaguar Land Rover on everything from an electric rear axle drive system to full hybrids. But the system can currently only be fitted to manual cars and Land Rover has focussed on its diesel engines. ‘‘We’re looking for the best way forward REVAMPED: Freelander 2’s sharper price tag is set to make the classic brand more affordable. It’s the starting point of the future of Land Rover’s environmental technologies ‘ for the Land Rover brand to meet the environmental challenges of today,’’ Mr Gault said. The stop-start system, like the best new technology, works with zero fuss. You pull up, leave the car in neutral, and the engine dies. Push the clutch down when it’s time to go again and the engine fires. I also liked the dashboard arrow which advises you to change up early, and often, to maximise the fuel economy. The e-green system is not going to create a stampede for the Freelander, but com- bined with the manual gearbox and a sharper price it will create some extra interest and points.
