5 reasons to buy the 2015 Land Rover LR2

1. Luxurious cabin 

A Land Rover isn’t a Land Rover without luxurious appointments, and the LR2 does not disappoint. All LR2s are equipped with niceties such as a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, power front seats, Meridian® Audio, and full power accessories such as power windows and locks. Options on higher trims include heated front seats, an in-dash navigation system, and memory seats. You will feel like royalty as the Land Rover LR2 keeps you coddled as you drive.  

2. Off-road prowess 

Every Land Rover LR2 is equipped with an all-wheel drive system with features specifically designed for off-road adventures. Like most of Land Rover’s products, this system includes several settings for different terrains, including snow, mud, sand, and general driving. In addition, the LR2 offers favorable departure and approach angles, ensuring you are confident navigating whatever the terrain brings your way.  

3. Punchy turbocharged engine 

Every 2015 Land Rover LR2 comes equipped with a turbocharged, 2.0L four-cylinder engine. This engine produces 240 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. Paired with the six-speed automatic transmission, you are sure to feel all the power on tap that you need to pass slow-moving traffic, merge onto highways, or tackle off-road trails. This makes it a great choice if you need something versatile for any adventure. 

4. Lots of colors and trim-level options 

The Land Rover LR2 offers 10 exterior colors and three trim levels so that you can find the match that is right for your lifestyle. The base model comes well-equipped and is ready for whatever your life throws its way. If you spend more time in shopping mall parking lots than navigating to a campsite, you may be better served by the HSE Lux trim, which comes with additional parking convenience features and larger, road-oriented wheel options.  

5. Premium technology 

The 2015 Land Rover LR2 is offered with technology for off-roading, including hill descent control and Land Rover's Terrain Response® functionality. These systems work together to ensure you have as much grip as possible. In addition, the LR2 is available with a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, Xenon headlamps, and in-dash navigation. Working together, these systems ensure your ride is as capable as it is convenient.
