Awsome. Selling nothing but at the mo. TD4 XS or SE are proving the best value at the mo.

Got a customer who bought one in march and tows 1500kg caravan all over and returns very high 20's and the odd low 30 mpg.

In the old job, spent in excess of 100 hrs off road in it and it is very capable. Unless you get it stuck in a falklands bog

Carbon neutral for the first 45000 miles / three years to keep the greens happy

Go for the 2.2 TD4 diesel rather then the 3.2 i6 petrol. Dealers have got the first batch of demos up for sale ow, so good deals to be had.

There have been a couple of software upgrades but nowt too major.

What car best compact 4x4

It is in a different league to the old one. What shocked me are the prices though - you could have a Discovery III for the same money as some of the models.....

We haven't sold any at all here - great car but five grand more than everybody expected it to be....

I'd quite possibly have bought one myself, but not at that price.

But in terms of performance it is so far ahead of the old one you wouldn't believe it, think of it not as a Freelander but a baby Range Rover Sport and you won't be far wrong. I like it a lot but £££££££££ talks (both ways)
