2009 Land Rover LR2 HSE 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Having previously owned an Lr3 and Freelander, the Lr2 sits comfortably as the entry Land Rover. Off road/Snow capabilities are very strong, and extended driving stretches of 8 plus hours with a family of four are certainly comfortable. Great driver visibility all around. Sun roof in front/moon roof in back make the cabin feel airy and spacious. Armrests are comfortable enough, but lack the plushness of the Lr3. Adequate storage space in back, good sound system, great warranty. Would recommend for those looking for a compact SUV with better than average snow/off road capabilities.


Best Features

Handles off road mud and deep winter snow very well. better MPG than larger LR4. comfortable interior. Great sound system.


Worst Features

for the curb weight could do with a few more horses for power. never had an issue with highway merging etc, but would like slightly more juice if needed.

Review

I live in Western Australia and our CRD LR2 has just come back from 2000 miles in the outback towing a two ton caravan! This vehicle is just awesome and towed brilliantly along with going truely off road through deep soft sand, over rocks and never missed a beat. Aside from a small steering rack issue that was fixed when it was a few weeks old the car has been perfect and my wife went from sceptic to Landrover fan!


Best Features

Great styling, great off road and love the terrain response system.


Worst Features

I plan to lift it a little to help with towing.

2009 Land Rover LR2 HSE 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


Review

A great car and great value for your money. So far I had no issues, the car feels well build and I love to drive it. For an SUV you can drive it very sporty (has enough power)without feeling uncomfortable or unsafe. The stereo system (Alpine Dolby Surround)is fantastic, bluetooth connects right away to any of my phones (con: could be louder). Navigation is terrific but the updates are very pricey. The breaks are great (I have the 19" wheels) and the engine sounds awesome, Fuel economy is great on average 14-16 mpg city, 23-26 mpg highway (what do you expect it is an SUV). In summary it is a great all- round vehicle, which puts Land Rover back on the map


Best Features

Navigation system, handling, breaks (powerful saved me a few times) and engine (sound, although 20 HP more wouldn't hurt), adaptive head lights (many think they are the high beams).


Worst Features

the sunroof could be bigger. Improve on carpet quality and some minor other quality issues (all in the interior). Combine navigation with additional info display for phone, radio, air-condition etc..

Review

This car is just plain fun to drive. It is great on the highway and very capable off road. I have driven in mud, deep snow and dirt roads. It may look like a Lexus but the LR2 can really go off road. After 6000 miles no problems. Seems to be put together very well.


Best Features

I opted for the no cost 18" wheels. This ride is better and you have a wide choice in replacement tire options.


Worst Features

Make the luggage rack standard and bring back the 50,000 mile free service.

Review

IT is a very nice car if you are looking for smaller SUV. there are lots of competition from Medz, Lex, BMW, Volvo, Acura ect. But the price is very fair for what you get. It is more like a truck than the other car- based. But still rides nice. Eventhough it is the lowest end Land Rover, it has the look and feel of the more e xpensive one, like the Sport.


Best Features

The exterior looks, High off the ground compare with the other smaller SUV's. The Brand.


Worst Features

Again, to be in this market at above $ 40k, I should have rear view camera, power lift gate, Home link, and bit more horse power. Bad taste in the 09' that the door handles and side mirrors are not the same color.
