The entry-level Land Rover competes at the premium end of the compact SUV segment. While rivals such as the BMW X3, Acura RDX, and Infiniti EX 35 emphasize on-road performance, the LR2 is geared towards light off-road duty. Most LR2 owners will not take their vehicles off paved roads, but will appreciate its full-time 4 x 4 driveline. Its unique Terrain Response System allows the driver to tune the 4WD system depending on the surface (grass, sand, etc.). Other safety features include Roll Stability Control and Hill Descent Control. Land Rover equips all LR2s with a 3.2L inline-6 mated to a 6-speed automatic. A 2.2L turbodiesel is available in non-US markets. Standard amenities include a 320-watt Alpine 9-speaker audio system, push-button start, and park distance control. 19-inch alloy wheels, HID headlights, DVD navigation, heated seats and windshield are optional.
