About

Though the Land Rover LR2 has been replaced by the Land Rover Discovery Sport, the 2015 model is still worth checking out if you want to go for a pre-owned SUV. The LR2 is a surprisingly affordable SUV, not only because is is pre-owned either. The LR2 didn’t go through many changes since the 2013 model was released but it was one of the first small crossovers introduced to the market. It is maneuverable for city driving, but still an epic ride off-road with exceptional capabilities.

Exterior Features

The design team kept the LR2 compact but strong. It boasts sleek lines but a strong front bumper with an aggressive grille. 18″ alloy wheels though you can always upgrade to 19″ wheels with the black/silver pack option. The HSE trim comes with LED daytime running lights though ultimately, the design remains pretty much the same.
