Vehicle Overview
The LR2 is a compact luxury SUV, like the Acura RDX and BMW X3. It provides a less expensive alternative to Land Rover's other offerings, which range from $38,000 to $90,000.

The LR2 shares its 230-horsepower inline-six-cylinder engine with several Volvo models. Offroad ability gets a boost thanks to permanent four-wheel drive that can apportion nearly 100 percent of engine power to the front or rear wheels. A terrain response system similar to that on the larger LR3 is also included.

Trim levels include the base SE and uplevel HSE.


New for 2009
Besides an HST package, which includes a mesh grille design, painted front and rear bumpers, and side-sill enhancements, there are no major changes to the LR2.

Exterior
From the adjoined headlights to the squared-off rear, the LR2 looks like a shrunken LR3 or Range Rover. The LR2 measures 177.1 inches from bumper to bumper, which is just 2.2 inches longer than its predecessor and marginally shorter than the RDX and X3. With 8.3 inches of ground clearance and a 31-degree approach angle, the LR2 is more offroad-capable than the RDX and X3.
  • Optional 19-inch wheels
  • Optional body-colored bumpers


Interior
Interior architecture mirrors the pricier LR3, with squared-off dashboard controls and a four-spoke steering wheel. Audiophiles can choose an optional 12-speaker Dolby system with surround sound. Two rows of seats accommodate five occupants, and cargo volume behind the second row measures 26.7 cubic feet. With the backseat folded, maximum cargo volume measures 59 cubic feet, which is about 12 cubic feet short of the X3.
  • Standard dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Standard leather upholstery
  • Standard two-piece panoramic moonroof
  • Standard power front seats


Under the Hood
The 3.2-liter inline-six generates 230 hp and 234 pounds-feet of torque. It drives all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. Land Rover's standard Terrain Response System matches engine, transmission and wheel-slip response to any of four selectable settings: normal, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Mud and Ruts, or Sand.

When properly equipped, the LR2 can tow up to 3,500 pounds.



Safety
  • Standard four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
  • Standard dual front airbags, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags, driver's knee airbag
  • Standard electronic stability system, including parent company Ford's Roll Stability Control
