Surprising off-road capability; competitive base MSRP; peppy acceleration
Forgettable fuel economy; cramped rear seat; limited cargo space; unproven long-term reliability
Two new decor packages, dubbed the Black Pack and the Silver Pack, are added to the option roster. Each features 19-in wheels, HDD navigation and unique trim pieces both inside and out. The optional Meridian sound system is bundled with satellite radio and offered this year at a special value price.
We don't see much reward in getting a loaded LR2 because that almost puts you in Evoque territory. Stick with the base model, though, and you're looking at a bargain in this segment. Find a Land Rover LR2 for sale

Acura RDX -- The RDX offers front-wheel drive as well as all-wheel drive, and it's one of the better values in this segment.
Audi Q5 -- The Q5 certainly makes more of a fashion statement, and it can be equipped with an excellent optional supercharged V6 or fuel-efficient TDI diesel engine.
BMW X3 -- The X3 continues to be one of our favorites. It's available with either 4-cylinder power or a phenomenal twin-turbo inline 6-cylinder.
