  • Land Rover updating LR2 for 2013
  • Interior will feature standard touchscreen
  • New turbocharged 4-cylinder borrowed from Evoque

Land Rover is making several changes to its entry-level LR2 luxury SUV for the 2013 model year. The automaker recently announced that a revised LR2 will go on sale later this year with an updated exterior, a revamped interior with several new features, and a new 4-cylinder engine designed to improve fuel economy.

On the outside, the 2013 Land Rover LR2 gains only minor updates, including revised Xenon headlights, new LED taillights and a modified grille. Other changes include restyled fog light housings and a gloss black grille surround reminiscent of Land Rover's new Range Rover Evoque SUV. The LR2 will also be offered with three new exterior colors for 2013: Aintree Green, Havana and Mauritius Blue.

Under the hood, the LR2 swaps out last year's 3.2-liter, 6-cylinder powerplant for an all-new 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Also included in the Evoque, the LR2's new engine makes 240 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque, an increase of 10 horses and 16 lb-ft over its predecessor. But despite the heartier numbers, Land Rover says the 2013 LR2 is more efficient than last year's model thanks to a lower curb weight and advanced new technology. Such new features include direct injection and a system that charges the SUV's alternator by recovering kinetic energy during deceleration.

But while the new engine and revised exterior are important updates to the 2013 Land Rover LR2, the SUV's most significant changes come to its interior. Inside, the LR2 features a completely redesigned center console that incorporates overhauled controls for its climate control and audio system. Also newly standard is a 7-in, center-mounted color touchscreen along with a new instrument cluster with a 5-in screen between its dials. New features include an updated navigation system, a newly optional Meridian audio system and an available rearview camera.

According to Land Rover, the 2013 LR2 will start at $37,250 including destination, which represents a $700 increase over last year's model. Pricing for the mid-level HSE model increases by $750 to $39,750, while the upscale HSE LUX model starts at $42,350, which is a bump of $850 over its 2012 predecessor. Although Land Rover has not yet announced an official launch date for the LR2, we expect it to arrive in dealerships nationwide sometime this fall.

What it means to you: With a starting price of just over $37,000, the LR2 is still the most accessible vehicle in Land Rover's lineup--and updates for 2013 make it even more desirable.
