CR Model Summary
The car-based LR2 is Land Rover's smallest and least-expensive model. Power comes from a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder, which averaged 21 mpg overall when we tested it in the Evoque. The AWD system can be adjusted for varying terrain, and delivers decent off-road performance. The ride is firm but steady, and the steering is well weighted and provides good feedback. In our 2008 test of the LR2, it disconcertingly lifted two wheels at its handling limits. Outward visibility is excellent. The interior is nicely finished, but the controls are confusing. A new seven-seat Discovery Sport will replace the LR2 in 2015.
