NEW FOR 2010:
– New digital clock
– Exterior colours: Bali Blue, Biscay Blue, Galway Green and Ipanema Sand added
For 2010, changes to the Land Rover LR2 are very minor: a new digital clock, and four 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, detecting traction loss at just 15 degrees of slip. 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, the HSE, 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.
Four option packages are available. The Cold Climate Package adds heated seats, heated windshield and heated washer jets. The HSE Plus Package adds Sirius satellite radio receiver, Bluetooth connectivity, adaptive bi-xenon headlamps, puddle lamps, front map lights, auto-dimming rearview mirror, garage door opener, and driver’s side mirror. The HSE Lux Package builds on the HSE Plus and adds navigation system, Alpine premium stereo, six-CD changer with 14 speakers, and rear-seat headphone sockets. The HST Package adds sport body kit, HST-design grille, and dual tailpipe finisher.
