Land Rover is on their A-game and have been putting a ton of time into their redesigns. And we’re happy to report on it, because whatever they’re doing over in the UK is looking just right.
The 2013 Land Rover LR2 joins the Range Rover Evoque in the premium compact SUV market. It now sports a 240hp 2-liter turbo engine, replacing the 3.2-liter inline 6, offering more power all around with better efficiency to boot. The new exterior design matches what’s under the hood, appearing sportier and more purposeful.
Inside you can expect a slew of new technologies brought over from the Evoque as well as a completely new dashboard layout and center console. And if you want to hear your music clearly with some serious oomph, you can opt for the 825-watt Meridian surround sound system with 17-speakers. Yes, 17.
The new LR2 will run you $37,250, while the HSE hits at $39,750, and the HSE LUX will pull $42,350 from your pockets. All things considered, the LR2 seems fairly priced in this market. Go for it!
