Land Rover Metropolis to Make Its Grand Entrance

The most luxurious Freelander yet is set to turn heads as it makes its UK debut at the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

The Metropolis will be the epitome of the Freelander family, reinforcing the appeal of a model that is still growing in popularity. Capitalising on increasing demand for the compact SUV, new equipment specifications are being introduced that offer customers, not only extra features but even greater value for money.

Building on the existing HSE LUX model, the Metropolis benefits from a wealth of sophisticated standard features to increase style, add functionality and make life on board even more comfortable.

These new features include electrically adjustable (eight-way for driver, six-way for passenger) front seats upholstered in premium Windsor leather, touchscreen satellite navigation, an 825W Meridian surround system, panoramic sunroof and 19-inch diamond-turned wheels. The Metropolis also extends to Xenon headlights with Land Rover's signature LED daytime running lights, heated steering wheel, luxury carpet mats, a reversing camera, premium metallic paint and gloss interior detailing.

The SE grade, the new entry point to Freelander, builds on the established GS specification with the addition of heated windscreen, front fog lights, 180inch, 10-spoke alloy wheels and the Design Pack combination.

The new upgraded range also includes revised powertrain options, offering the TD4 engine with manual transmission in SE and SE Tech versions, and the SD4 unit with automatic gearbox across the complete range.

The new Freelander range goes on sale from June, with on-the-road prices from £27,765 or available from £299 per month.
