The Freelander is a small off road vehicle that was designed almost a decade ago. The passenger compartment was unstable with the door buckling and the screen pillar moving back significantly. In the frontal test chest loads were relatively high and there were problems too for the upper legs. The side impact performance also had problems in the chest area where a side airbag may be helpful. The child restraints provided good protection for the side impact but in the frontal test both are criticised for not protecting the children’s heads. The pedestrian protection was average for this type of vehicle.
