Added in: News


Regulars here would remember that we reported in detail when it emerged that Jaguar Land Rover, the Tata Group owned British car manufacturer has posted a decent sales growth figure. We weren’t too surprised to see the popular SUV maker performing really well, what with the range of new cars it has launched in recent times (Read: Evoque, new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport)?


Also in pipeline is an important new model that will be sold with the Land Rover moniker. The upcoming next gen Freelander has been in works since sometime now and guess what? The car was recently spotted undergoing road tests on public roads of Kerala! This is the second time that the car has been spotted running on Indian roads. The test mule that was spotted recently bore local registration plates. Underpinning the new Freelander is a modified Evoque platform and the car will come with two seating layouts- 5 seat and 7 seats. The new car is expected to arrive in 2014 and will offer a set of engine options that will include various four cylinder engines, along with a supercharged petrol motor. The new Freelander is most likely to be sold as a ‘Discovery’ and safely expect the car to be here within a year of its public debut.
