Land Rover LR2 – 2008 Review: We’ve all heard the sayings before: “Things can only get better.” “We’re past the worst of it.” The point is always the same – sometimes it takes hitting rock bottom to turn things around.
It may be harsh, but we considered the late Freelander to be an accurate representation of Land Rover’s darkest days, with the eventual turnaround coming in the form of the 2008 LR2. Replacing the miserable Freelander, the new little Rover enters the market with less exaggerated styling, an invigorated powertrain, and a comfortable interior. If only it lived up to the Land Rover off-road heritage.
