Tata Motors’ British luxury subsidiary Land Rover had the Freelander 2 SUV introduced as a CBU until recently. However,  Land Rover  now enjoys the increased localisation of the SUV just enough to get the Freelander 2 price right. Freelander 2 is now available at an introductory price of Rs 33.88 lakh. The SUV is imported into the country as a CKD unit now, which is further assembled at the Tata Motor’s manufacturing unit in Pune.  As a part of localised assembly, there is a certain variation in the ergonomics side of the compact SUV. The interiors of the SUV are refurbished for a new look.

The SUv is now offered with increased ground clearence to suit the Indian roads. The interiors are raised a little bit for higher seating layout. This helps the driver more than anybody with a proper view of the road ahead, while the passengers can entertain themselves with the better roadside view. However, there are not many mechanical changes in the SUV as it still comes powered by the same 2.2 L diesel powertrain matched with the standard 6 speed automatic gearbox, the engine and transimssion being a part of the CKD unit. The consumers get a choice between the 150 PS diesel powertrain and the 190 PS engine, but with a class-leading common 420 Nm torque.

The compact SUV has always managed to send the shivers down the spine of its closest rivals BMW X3 and Audi Q5, especially with the unique ensemble of features it comes loaded with. More than anything else, the Freelander 2 gains advantage with its lower price tag. Quite easily, the Freelander 2 sits a notch below its competitors, but only where the pricing is concerned. The localised assembly has given the Land rover a huge pricing advantage against the BMW X3 and Audi Q5, which carry a price tag way above Rs 40 lakh.
