Reviewed by Automotive on
Vehicle OverviewThe 2013 Land Rover LR2 sees a new, more fuel efficient engine join in along with styling tweaks both inside and out. You can categorize the 2013 Land Rover LR2 as a compact SUV as evident with the reduced amount of cargo space. There's only one option when it comes to picking the latest variation of the LR2, in that comes in the form of a base model. The standard engine underneath the hood of the 2013 Land Rover LR2 is a 2.0-liter inline-4 rated at 240 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. EPA estimates this engine is good for 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg when mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. Mail
Like those before it, the 2013 Land Rover LR2 sits in a weird spot in the North American market. The LR2 faces stiff competition from the likes of the Volvo XC60 and even its stable mate, the Land Rover Evoque. In fact, many question why the LR2 is still around with the Evoque now in Land Rover's line-up. Both the LR2 and Evoque share similar technology, dimensions, and off-road capabilities. However, because of the Evoque's radical exterior styling, it has been gobbling up sales for Land Rover, leaving the LR2 to fend for itself. Nevertheless, the LR2 lives on and is a capable off-roader, but there are other choices, even within Land Rover, if you're in the market for a luxury compact SUV.
New for 2013As stated above, the 2013 Land Rover LR2 welcomes a 2.0-liter Inline-4, an engine which the British automaker know can handle some off-roading here and there.
