Link to News Section

Land Rover India has quietly slipped in a new variant to the facelifted Freelander 2 SUV range, in the form of the lower priced S Business Edition model. The SUV is priced at 37.11 lakh rupees, ex-showroom Delhi, which is about two lakh rupees cheaper than the mid SE variant. The Freelander sold in India is now available in three variants: S, SE and HSE.

The facelifted version of the Freelander 2 was launched earlier this year with prices at 39.19 lakh rupees and 44.42 lakh rupees for the SE and HSE variants respectively. (Aforementioned prices reflect ex-showroom Delhi figures) The S variant loses three features to make for the lower price tag.

While the SUV is available with a 2.2 liter turbo diesel engine in two outputs: 148 Bhp-420 Nm and 188 Bhp-420 Nm, the S variant uses the engine with the lower power output. Other mechanical details such as the 6 speed automatic transmission and the Terrain Response four wheel drive system remain unchanged on the S Business Edition version.

The SUV is assembled at Jaguar-Land Rover's assembly facility at Chikli, off Pune. This facility was earlier used by the Mercedes Benz-Tata Motors car making partnership. The Freelander 2 is the only SUV in the Land Rover range to be assembled in India. Plans are afoot to CKD assemble the Defender and the Evoque in India.

The Business Edition also loses the Front Door Puddle lamps as well as the seat based armrests for driver & passenger in front. I think the latter should have been basic equipment, how much are they saving by dropping it!
