Land Rover launches Freelander (LR2) HST model in U.K.

by Nick Aziz

Land Rover today introduced an HST derivative of its new Freelander 2 SUV. The HST model features a number of performance-inspired styling cues, although the engine remains unchanged. So far there has been no word on U.S. availability. The Freelander 2 is known as the LR2 in America.

Features include a Sports Styling Pack with front and rear bumper aprons, side sill mouldings and a rear roof spoiler. Other enhancements include 19 inch alloy 10-spoke wheels with shadowchrome finish, leather seat facings, privacy glass and metallic paint.

John Edwards, managing director for Land Rover UK commented: "The Freelander 2 HST has an impressive muscular stance when seen on the road. It will undoubtedly be appealing to our customers who require a dramatic visual impact without compromising on practicality."
