NEW FOR 2012:

- New optional wheel design
- Exterior colours: Santorini Black, Barolo Black, Firenze Red and Havana added

For 2012, the Land Rover LR2 is unchanged, except for a new available 19-inch ten-spoke diamond-turned wheel package and new exterior colours.

The LR2 uses a 3.2-litre inline six-cylinder with a six-speed automatic transmission. Its Haldex permanent all-wheel drive system is front-wheel biased, and uses a “pre-charge” to the electronically-actuated coupling for instant torque transfer when required. A driver-selectable Terrain Response system can be set into one of four modes: general driving, grass/gravel/snow, mud/ruts, and sand.

The LR2 comes in a single trim line and includes 19-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, eight-way driver and six-way passenger power-adjustable heated perforated leather seats, rear spoiler, driver’s knee airbag, cargo cover, keyless entry with pushbutton start, heated mirrors, auto-dimming rearview mirror, headlight washers, front and rear fog lamps, dual-panel panoramic sunroof, privacy glass, tire pressure monitoring system, cruise control, heated windshield washer nozzles, auto-down windows, trip computer, rear park assist, and six-CD stereo with auxiliary input and steering wheel-mounted controls.

Available options include an HSE Package of heated mirrors with puddle lamps and auto tip-down in reverse, adaptive auto-levelling xenon headlamps, garage door opener, front map reading lights, memory function, Bluetooth connectivity and satellite digital audio receiver system; and an HSE Lux Package that further adds premium seats and floor mats.
