JOHANNESBURG - Land Rover has introduced a new limited edition model of its Freelander - the XS.

The four-wheel drive Freelander retains the terrain response system pioneered by its Discovery sibling.

The special derivative adds both interior and exterior enhancements. Features include LEDs, 17" alloys with an anthracite finish and power-adjustable seats with partial leather trim.


Fold-down armrests enhance comfort and rear occupants can also make use of a central armrest with integrated storage and cup holders. Leather is also in evidence on the steering wheel, and a single USB port allows for multimedia connectivity.

The wheels are finished in a dark hue for the grille and side vents. Door handles, mirror scalps, rear bumper and door sills are body coloured.

An upgrade pack, priced at R23 000 adds a 320Watt, 11-speaker Meridian audio system, Bluetooth and extended navigation.


Spotting the limited edition version on local roads will be rare as only 32 have been allocated for South Africa. The XS is available exclusively with the 2.2-litre SD4 turbodiesel (140kW/420Nm), partnered by the six-speed sequential automatic.

The Land Rover Freelander XS is priced at R512 600 and includes a five-year or 100 000km maintenance plan.
