2008 Land Rover LR2 SE 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


It looks great, rides great and seats 4 or 5 more comfortably, with more elbow room and an overall more spacious feel than the BMW X3 or Acura RDX. Body is very rigid and conveys "bank-vault" solidity. Acceleration is more than adequate in real world conditions (even if on paper it seems slow by comparison). Handling is more truck like than the others, but that has some charm. Braking is excellent, though as with cornering there's a fair amount of body dive/roll. MPG is worse than I expected both highway and city. I average about 18 overall. I have had multiple, though generally minor, problems that resulted in trips to the dealer. But overall a better deal -- and much more unique.

Favorite Features

Body rigidity and ride, looks and uniqueness, great view of the surroundings, very easy to maneuver in tight places, high level of equipment and capability for the price, much cheaper than the X3 and much, much better looking than the RDX. Roomier than both for passengers.

Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage. I also have a few nits with the controls: too easy to switch on high beams accidentally; can't see the lights on the side mirror-adjustment control; center console could be narrower. Driver footrest would be nice. Less roll/dive would be nice but might require other compromises.
