KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 2/27/2014


The new Range Rover Evoque may be the family looker, but the entry-level Land Rover LR2 SUV still deserves a strong look. Last year, Land Rover updated the engine, interior and exterior styling to draw more attention to its least expensive model. This year little has changed, but the LR2 still offers something a lot of its competition doesn't: real off-road capability. With standard all-wheel drive, ample ground clearance, and the ability to traverse nearly 20 inches of standing water, the LR2 can go where similarly priced competitors can't. On the other hand, despite last year's improvements, the 2014 Land Rover LR2 doesn't offer the refinement or panache of luxury competitors like the Mercedes-Benz GLK, BMW X3 and Audi Q5.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you want your luxury SUV to have the off-road ability to back up its rugged looks, the 2014 Land Rover LR2 may just be the ticket. It also has an air of exclusivity, because the LR2 is a relatively low-volume vehicle compared to other brands.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The downside to the LR2 is that, despite its luxury nameplate, it's simply not as sophisticated or refined as competitors like the Audi Q5, BMW X3 or even the Acura RDX. Then there's Land Rover's reputation for slipshod reliability, giving the LR2 some of the industry's lowest residual values.

What's New for 2014

The 2014 Land Rover LR2 gets a handful of tweaks after last year's upgrade. The SUV's infotainment system gets a more responsive touch screen, and the SiriusXM satellite radio features better search and other usability improvements. The 825-watt Meridian sound system is available on base and HSE models as a stand-alone option.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The good news is that if you plan to take your entry-luxury SUV off road, the 2014 Land Rover LR2 is pure Land Rover. The turbocharged 4-cylinder offers broad power and smooth throttle response, perfect for carefully navigating obstacles. On road, it's a different story. While other brands may brag about their "carlike" handling, the LR2 feels more ponderous than its rivals. Still, it confidently soaks up bumps and road imperfections, and it easily negotiates corners and tight parking lots. Wind and road noise contribute to the LR2 feeling less refined than its competitors, though.

Favorite Features

TERRAIN RESPONSE
Part of the reason the Land Rover LR2 is so good off road is its Terrain Response system, which tailors vehicle characteristics to handle one of four driver-selectable settings, such as grass/gravel/snow, mud and ruts, sand and normal driving.

MERIDIAN SOUND SYSTEM
There's no doubting that the 825-watt, 17-speaker Meridian surround-sound system is one of the best out there. If you're an audiophile, you're likely to look at the Land Rover LR2 as just a fancy mobile carrying case for this sound system.
