The 2015 Land Rover LR2 luxury SUV adds two new décor packages: the Black Pack and Silver Pack. Both feature 19-inch wheels, HDD navigation and special interior and exterior accents. The 825-watt Meridian audio system is offered this year with SiriusXM at a special value price.
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.
As the Land Rover line evolves into sleeker, more stylish designs, the LR2 SUV for 2015 retains a look preferred by many off-road traditionalists. Although the LR2 is Land Rover's least expensive model, it is still a very capable one; it's also a bit more practical than the low-slung Evoque and Discovery Sport. Its interior is plush, but somewhat snug and the LR2's fuel economy is less than eye-popping. Then again, Land Rover's LR2 luxury SUV can truly be taken off-road, a feat many competitors allude to in their brochures but few can actually deliver. For those who spend more time on road than off, however, luxury rivals such as the Mercedes-Benz GLK, Audi Q5 and Cadillac SRX make much more comfortable and spacious alternatives.
