2011 Land Rover Freelander Facelift Leaked through Brochure Shots?

We weren’t supposed to see the refreshed for the 2011 model year Land Rover Freelander SUV before its world premiere either at the Moscow auto show in August 2010, or in Paris at the end of September, but Car Magazine provides our first look at the facelifted model through a group of pictures, allegedly taken from a leaked Italian brochure.

Blink an eye and you’ll probably miss the visual changes made to the 2011 Freelander as these are limited to a new grille raised up in line with the hood and a reworked front bumper with redesigned fog lamps and air intakes. The longer boot handle trim at the back and the new alloy wheel design round off the cosmetic upgrades.

It remains to be seen if Land Rover will also update the Freelander’s interior and/or mechanical hardware.

*For the record, we noticed that in the rear-end photo, the left C-column appears to be painted in the same color as the car while the right C-Column is blacked out, however this could be due to a reflection from the brochure paper.
