The Freelander/LR2 came with a full-time all-wheel-drive system and Land Rover’s renowned off-road technology, making it capable of tackling various terrains. Inside, it provided a comfortable and practical interior with seating for five and a split-folding rear seat for added cargo versatility. While it offered a premium driving experience, it faced some reliability issues in its early years.
