Distinctive look; good outward visibility; passenger and cargo space; sophisticated Terrain Response electronics; rugged off-road ability with luxury-grade on-road ride
The 2012 Land Rover LR2 has a little more off-road capability and ruggedness than you'll find in most other compact crossovers, and that's one of its most appealing attributes. It's also quite maneuverable and easy to park, thanks to its compact size. Other reasons for picking the LR2 is its distinctive, boxy exterior, passenger- or cargo-friendly interior and extensive set of luxury features. Terrain Response and the host of electronic safety, traction and off-road aids make it a good, safe choice for whatever roads, trails or weather you might need to take on.
