What's the best year model for a diesel manual Land Rover Freelander 2? Which engine to choose, too, please?

If your budget allows, we'd recommend a post-facelift model from 2010 onwards. At this point, the TD4 engine was revised and - despite a power drop - offered more torque, making it a more relaxing car to drive than earlier models. If you don't need four-wheel-drive, it could be worth hunting out an eD4 model. These are two-wheel drive and rather rare, but are generally more reliable due to the lack of a complex four-wheel-drive system.
