Pros

Model Highlights

The LR2 comes in a single HSE trim, powered by a 230-hp, 3.2L in-line 6-cylinder engine and 6-speed automatic transmission with full-time 4-wheel drive. The engine has variable valve timing for responsiveness throughout the rev range, and the LR2 can accelerate to 60 mph in 8.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 124 mph. EPA fuel economy ratings are 15 mpg city, 22 highway. While the suspension is tuned for comfort and to allow some off-road ability, it handles and maneuvers reasonably well in tight city spaces as well.

The LR2's boxy design pays dividends inside, with enough room for five adults--though broad-shouldered occupants might be a little tight three across in back. In front, a so-called command driving position puts you high and upright, with a good view out over the hood and around the vehicle compared to most other utility vehicles. Cargo space is quite good, too, with the boxy body allowing a versatile space with the backseat folded down.

The Land Rover LR2 is missing one key off-roading attribute--a low range--but its system provides good on-the-road traction while enabling respectable off-road ability with a host of electronic controls. Terrain Response coordinates them all, with four different modes, for normal driving; slippery conditions (like snow or gravel); mud and ruts for rugged off-road conditions; and sand--with the latter mode offering just the right amount of wheelspin. The LR2's electronic stability control and anti-lock braking system are specially calibrated for each mode, while the all-wheel drive system's electronic-locking center differential behaves for the best traction and stability for the conditions.

To help keep the LR2 moving and the driver keeping his or her cool, the LR2 includes a host of additional electronic aids: Cornering Brake Control, Engine Drag Control, Gradient Release Control and Emergency Brake Assist. Other safety features include electronic stability control front and side-curtain airbags, and a driver's side knee bag.

The LR2, as all Land Rover models, comes equipped as a luxury model. It's sold in a single trim that includes a long list of standard features such as dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, perforated leather upholstery and a 9-speaker sound system.

An HSE Lux Package is an expensive package, costing nearly $5,000, but it dramatically upgrades the look and feel of the interior, adding Windsor leather seats with contrast stitching, an upgraded driver's seat with power lumbar and premium carpet mats as well as a 480-watt Alpine surround sound system. A lower-priced HSE package pairs a Bluetooth hands-free interface with Sirius Satellite Radio, HD capability, heated side mirrors, a universal garage-door opener, adaptive headlamps and auxiliary lighting.


Model News

The LR2 was given a freshened appearance inside and out last year for 2011. It returns unchanged for 2012.


Value Writeup

The 2012 Land Rover LR2 has a little more off-road capability and ruggedness than you'll find in most other compact crossovers, and that's one of its most appealing attributes. It's also quite maneuverable and easy to park, thanks to its compact size. Other reasons for picking the LR2 is its distinctive, boxy exterior, passenger- or cargo-friendly interior and extensive set of luxury features. Terrain Response and the host of electronic safety, traction and off-road aids make it a good, safe choice for whatever roads, trails or weather you might need to take on.

Summary
Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (Land Rover) is recalling certain model year 2010-2015 LR2 and 2012-2013 Range Rover Evoque vehicles.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating air bag deployment, if the air bag is disabled, the air bag may not deploy or may not deploy properly, increasing the risk of injury to the front seat passenger.

Jaguar Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and tighten the rear brake caliper retaining bolts, free of charge. The recall began on January 11, 2013. Owners may contact Jaguar Land Rover at 1-800-637-6837, Option 9.

Land Rover's campaign recall number is P029. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Jaguar Land Rover is recalling certain model year 2012 LR2 and Range Rover Evoque vehicles manufactured on June 11, 2012. The rear brake caliper retaining bolts may be insufficiently torqued.

Consequence
Insufficiently torqued brake caliper bolts may result in the brake caliper detaching. A detached brake caliper may lead to a loss of brake function. Additonally, the caliper may strike a wheel resulting in the sudden deflation of a tire. Either situation may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.

Jaguar Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and tighten the rear brake caliper retaining bolts, free of charge. The recall began on January 11, 2013. Owners may contact Jaguar Land Rover at 1-800-637-6837, Option 9.

Land Rover's campaign recall number is P029. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
