The Subaru Forester IV 2.0 XT 240HP automatic 4x4 has 4 % more torque than the Land Rover. Even though a large number of drivers do not appreciate the maximum torque when buying a vehicle, it describes the best how a car is speeding up. As far as these two vehicles are concerned the difference is quite small and for that reason the difference will not be much noticeable.
The Subaru Forester IV burns up 16 % less petrol in the city compared to the Land Rover. The Subaru Forester IV, which comes from small off-road 4x4 class, uses 1.6 l fewer petrol. It is also worth to know that average fuel consumption in the urban for the compact SUV class equals to 9.6 l, whereas the Subaru Forester IV uses by 17 % more fuel than the average.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h
A little difference at the level of 13 % indicates that the Land Rover Freelander II 2.0 Si4 240HP automatic 4x4 is insignificantly beaten in this confrontation. In the „mini 4x4” segment, to which the Land Rover is assigned, the medium acceleration amounts to 10.9 s and is by 2.3 s slower than acceleration of Land Rover’s car.
The top speed of the Subaru is greater than the Land Rover Freelander II by 21 km/h, which allows the Subaru Forester IV 2.0 XT 240HP automatic 4x4 to cover faster large distance of highway. The difference at the level of 21 kilometers/hour is little and will not be a very noticable in everyday driving.
Ground clearance is defined as the space between the vehicle underbody and the ground. taking these two cars into consideration, it is the Subaru Forester IV that has 11 mm higher ride height when compared with the Land Rover Freelander II 2.0 Si4 240HP automatic 4x4. For this reason the Subaru Forester IV 2.0 XT 240HP automatic 4x4 will deal better with rough terrain and obstacles in the city. However, the higher ground clearance equals a higher center of gravity, which can adversely influence the handling of the Subaru.
The Subaru has by 1 cubic centimeter greater engine size in comparison to the Land Rover Freelander II. This play a little role when it comes to accleration, as both figures does not differ much.
The Subaru Forester IV 2.0 XT 240HP automatic 4x4 is 96 mm longer in relation to the Land Rover Freelander II. The length of the car plays a role in respect of driving comfort and room in the trunk.

A Boxer installed in the
Subaru occurs to be noticeably
better because it can be shorter and
lighter and creates less vibrations compared to straight
Moreover bear in mind
that its horizontal
layout results in that a
car has the benefit of a lower center of
gravity what affects the better grip. The advantage of engine which cylinders are arranged in a line, like the one
placed in the Land Rover, is that due
to its simple construction it can be cheaper compared to
other types of engines.
Model release date
Manufacture of the older car commenced 7 years prior to its contender hence it seems to be right to assume that this car features significantly less advanced parts applied.
