2011 Land Rover LR2 review: Our expert's take

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 pricier offerings.

The LR2 shares its 230-horsepower inline-six-cylinder engine with several Volvo models. Off-road ability gets a boost thanks to permanent four-wheel drive that can distribute nearly all engine power to the front or rear wheels.

New for 2011
For 2011, the interior is revised and given a new instrument cluster, while the exterior is also refreshed. Changes include a new front bumper and a two-bar grille. Eagle-eyed observers will notice that the Land Rover logo has changed from gold on green to silver on green.

From the adjoined headlights to the squared-off rear, the LR2 looks like a shrunken Range Rover. With 8.3 inches of ground clearance and a 31-degree approach angle, the LR2 is more off-road-capable than the RDX and X3. Exterior features include:

  • Optional 19-inch wheels
  • Optional body-colored bumpers

The LR2 has a redesigned instrument cluster and a four-spoke steering wheel. Two rows of seats accommodate five occupants. Interior features include:

  • 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-cylinder generates 230 hp and 234 pounds-feet of torque. It drives all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. When properly equipped, the LR2 can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Safety features include:

  • Standard four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
  • Standard dual front airbags, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags and driver’s knee airbag
  • Standard electronic stability system with Roll Stability Control

I love my Rover

I absolutely love this car!! Bought mine used, but garage kept, and it has not disappointed me. There was some damage to the interior, but the overall function is supreme. This car also has the speed, capability and reliability anyone needs, and it was very affordable.


Comfortable luxury car at a comfortable price

I’ve owned this car for about a year now, I bought it used at 70,000 miles or so and I have yet to have a major problem. Gorgeous interior for the price paid, and the year made. Only thing I do not appreciate in this car is the gas mileage, and the sound system. Gas mileage is somewhat lousy for a straight 6 engine. The included sound system is a very nice alpine, the complaint is with the auto bass protection system. Once you start bumping bass heavy music the system automatically turns itself down noticeably. I’m sure it’s meant to protect the speakers, but it’s more of a nuisance than anything. One of the larger complaints I noticed about other reviews is the acceleration. Again, it’s a straight 6 naturally aspirated engine. I wouldn’t expect 0-60 in under 7 seconds with a straight 6 lugging a 4200lb car. Considering it’s weight and engine design it feels fast, and top speed on the highway is no issue. The suspension is air ride and adaptable to terrain. Rides beautifully on the highway as it stiffens up with speed. Overall really nice car.


Most reliable fun car to own
