2011 Land Rover LR2 Reviews

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.

Exterior
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

Interior
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
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

Love this Rover

by Roverman from Columbus IN on May 20, 2017

I only had this car about three weeks but so far I am very happy with it. I have had to tweak a few things on it due to personal comfort but other than that this is an excellent vehicle.

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
