2015 Land Rover LR2 Features
The 2015 Land Rover LR2 is the last model before the announced radical change. As you probably already heard, the 2015 Land Rover LR2 will be replaced next year by the Discovery Sport. Although the name change doesn’t necessarily mean much, the 2015 model year will probably be the last version of the 2015 LR2 as we know it. This SUV comes in various trims: SE, HSE and HSE LUX. It is powered by a 2.0-liter inline-four engine, which has quite satisfactory power output and very good EPA fuel economy. As for the exterior changes, the 2015 Land Rover LR2 will probably come without any significant improvements. Having in mind that the 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport comes next year as an all-new model, the 2015 LR2 probably wouldn’t be one of the radically changed SUVs this year. As every other Land Rover, the LR2 will provide a decent level of luxury and pretty satisfactory interior. Of course, since this vehicle belongs to the top-notch SUV stratum, they had to justify it by installing high-end technology and advanced safety systems.
