Land Rover LR2 is a small cross utility vehicle that was introduced in 2008 by British based luxury car manufacturer to meet the demand of the people wishing for car-based crossover SUVs. The luxurious SUV is one of the smaller SUVs in Land Rover’s impressive lineup. The luxurious and compact SUV competes in the market with the likes of Audi Q5, Cadillac SRX, BMW X3, and Volvo XC60, among others. The luxurious SUV represents the best of off-road capability, refinement, maneuverability, straight-line performance, and all-weather ability, among others.
History of the Vehicle Land Rover introduced the vehicle in 2008, thereby extending its family vehicle line up that boasted of big names like Range Rover Evoque, Range Rover Sport, and Range Rover Explorer, among others. The high performing vehicle was part of the Land Rover objective and mission of putting in the market a luxurious but affordable SUV that came with the highly venerable Land Rover brand name. It was more of a mass market SUV that satisfied the wants of consumers who wanted a luxurious but affordable SUV with a fair amount of all-terrain capability and strong on-the-road performance.
Engine Specifications The earlier generation LR2 came equipped with a 3.2 liter engine capable of taking the vehicle to 60 miles per hour from zero in just over eight seconds. The six-cylinder engine came with six-speed automatic transmission. The Haldex all-wheel drive system distributed power accordingly to all four corners, making it extremely easy to negotiate even in tough driving conditions.
Latest Model The latest model is available in a single trim level. The luxurious SUV is powered by a 3.2 liter turbocharged engine capable of generating an impressive 230 horsepower at 234 feet pound of Torque. The engine is quieter and offers better vibration control. A six speed automatic transmission is standard with a manual shift mode. The vehicle can travel 17 miles for each gallon in city conditions and 24 miles for each gallon in highway conditions.
The SUV with all-wheel drive offers a comfortable ride and a good handling experience. The vehicle though is more renowned for its off-road capability with its excellent Terrain response system, hill descent control, and good ground clearance capability. The 2013 LR2 comes with a more spacious and updated interior, but the critics feel that the vehicle lacks the luxury associated with the cabin of its more up market Range Rover and Land Rover siblings as well as of its closest rivals.
The vehicle, however, more than makes up with a wide array of advanced features for what it lacks in the look and feel of its cabin. The SUV with excellent outward visibility comes with front and rear fog lights, keyless ignition/entry, Bluetooth capability, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Additional features include bi-xenon adaptive front lighting, rain sensing windshield wipers, 17-speaker Meridian audio system, dual-zone climate control system, rear parking sensors, side curtain airbags, USB port, and rearview camera, among others.

The latest model provides buyers the option of a V-8 engine capable of generating a highly impressive 385-horsepower or a V-8 supercharged engine capable of generating a mindboggling 510 horsepower.
