Try out a crossover that won't overwhelm you with its sheer size while still providing plenty of space in the back. The Land Rover LR2 has the classic styling without the bulk, making it a top pick for city driving as well as off-road.
The Land Rover LR2 Offers Off-Road Terrain and Around the Town Flexibility
The Land Rover LR2 is the perfect choice if you want a vehicle that's tough enough to handle off-road but smart enough to manoeuvre around the city too.
There's not a large amount of space for cargo in the trunk when all seats are in position but there is the option to fold the seats down to increase the cargo load to a maximum.
Under the hood, the LR2 is powered by a six-cylinder 3.2 gas engine, producing 230 horsepower and 234 lb.-ft. of torque, an impressive return. This is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission; a manual isn't available on this model. If the fuel consumption on this is too thirsty for your needs, there's a lighter model which is fitted with a four-cylinder 2.0-litre engine. You won't be sacrificing guts in the motor as there's actually an improvement with 240 horsepower and 250 lb.-ft. of torque.
Packed Full of Extras
As a crossover that's more diminutive than its peers, there's perhaps some pressure for the LR2 to look slicker inside than a more rugged all-terrain SUV.
You'll find lots of creature comforts to make this a more enjoyable ride including power steering, steering wheel controls, leather-trimmed steering wheel, climate control, a synthetic wood trim, bucket front seats and a generously sized LED touchscreen.
These features combined with the compact design mean that the LR2 handles smartly around the streets, making it easy to manoeuvre and responsive to the controls.
All Inclusive Safety Features
Whatever complaints you may have about Land Rover, this manufacturer takes safety very seriously and is proactive in adding a range of features to all their models across the range. This means that even the entry-level trims have excellent safety features compared to other makes and models.
Some of the safety features you might find in the LR2 include ABS, automatic braking in emergencies, descent control, rear parking sensors, traction control, electronic stability control, ventilated disc brakes to the front and rear, tire pressure monitoring, a system for recognizing passenger occupancy and front and side airbags
Keeping intruders away from the vehicle can be a challenge, but remote keyless entry and ignition, plus an anti-theft alarm system will provide a barrier to unauthorized entry.
The Land Rover LR2 provides the ideal solution for those who want an SUV style vehicle without driving a hulking beast. Much smaller than its peers but with the same tough and durable design, the LR2 is not one that you should overlook.
