If you need an SUV with real off-road capability or just desire the image of such, the 2013 Land Rover LR2 will likely meet your distinctive criteria. And, since the LR2 is a relatively low-volume pro
Those who would gladly trade a measure of off-road performance for a significant increase in sophistication and comfort will find the Audi Q5, BMW X3 or value-packed Acura RDX more appealing. While it
While "carlike" is a term often associated with luxury SUVs, the 2013 Land Rover LR2 feels noticeably more ponderous on the road than its rivals. Nonetheless, there's a confidence to the way it negotiates corners and tight parking spaces.

"My 2011 LR2 just celebrated its first birthday. The first year of ownership has exceeded expectations - truck is extremely comfortable and capable - Winter snow is no issue whatsoever. Power and handling are very satisfying - great long distance vehicle. 22 MPG on the highway. My only wish would be for a slightly longer cargo bay - another six inches would be great. All in all, just a great truck!"

"Currently at 55K. Completely reliable to date. Excellent brakes. Steering sensitive at highway speed. Nice firm but compliant ride - solid quality feel - I once purchased a used Subaru over a new Honda based on feel. Adequate power. Fits the bill of a small luxury SUV. Mileage is acceptable but not great. Feels like a smaller version of an XC90 - similar motor, safety systems and switches / controls. Well appointed - garage door opener would have been nice."
