better postioned than the Freelander
By Bill on
2009 Land Rover LR2 HSE 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
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.
Handles off road mud and deep winter snow very well. better MPG than larger LR4. comfortable interior. Great sound system.
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.
