what do the spec letters stand for?


hi,as you may have seen in a different thread i'm looking at getting a freelander...just wondered what the letters are and how many variants there are?
for example in the older freelanders i see xdi or xedi and in the newer gs etc,etc.....
any idea's on fuller listings or what differences they have?
cheers guys
Not quite sure about the early models, think they went from:
i, Ei, XEi (petrol) and Di, XDi, XEDi (diesel)

Lower models didn't even have ABS, TC or HDC.

When the engine range was expanded in 2000 to include 1.8i, TD4, and V6 the models changed and didn't vary with the engine.

The three initial specs were S, GS and ES. Later a top of the range HSE was added, I think with the facelifted versions in 2003.

The S lacked roof rails and had steel wheels rather than alloys but by this time the whole range had ABS, TC and HDC. GS had roof rails, alloys and air con. ES had half leather seats, cruise control, CD changer, powerfolding wing mirrors and a little light above the vanity mirror!
