First off...I love the Land Rover LR2. Even though I've only driven it for two months, it's been an impressive two months! Great ride and handle on the roads (highway and stop and go). Great ancillary helpful features like self adjusting side mirrors when in reverse and an intuitive headlight system. Plus, its 'just soo pretty' (courtesy of Wesley Snipes in WMCJ:) No issues with quality as previous LR2 owners have had, but then again, I've only had it for two months. I bought the model with the Nav system and it leaves a little to be desired, but overall it points you where you need to go [newest software installed (2009-2010) sometimes cannot find the routes in city streets/neighborhoods and you have to rely on the directional arrow, and the POI feature could use an upgrade (seems like it cannot locate a lot of basic places-i.e. grocery stores, movie theatres and restaurants that have been long standing)]. I don't know if I would recommend installing the audio connectivity kit (iPod connector) for the price of parts and installation ~$825 (bought and installed from Land Rover after I purchased the vehicle) because it lacks some basc features that it seems like it should have (like a pause button), but it is nice to control your iPod from the steering wheel. Again, just minor things that do not at all detract from my overall fantastic LR experience!
The Land Rover LR2 is a perfect combination of performance, utility, comfort, and luxury. Thoughtful design features like adjustable lumbar seating, cup holders deep enough to prevent spilling, and automatic climate control put this SUV above the rest. Terrain response control is easy to access and activate, and the LR2 maneuvers through snow, mud, puddles, gravel and sand with ease. There is a lot of competition in the small to mid-size SUV range, and the LR2 is a strong contender. Gas mileage could be better, so it would be great to see a hybrid LR2 model in the future.
It's like driving your living room up a mountain. Auto everything. Wipers, headlights, high beams, back up warning actually turns down your radio so you can hear it. Remote at night turns on access lights under the rear view outside mirrors and lights up the ground by the doors. My 6 cyl. gets 24 mpg around town in the summer with the a/c on or up a mountain.
