The LR2 crossover features a soft ride exhibiting noticeable body roll in moderate corners. On pavement, road irregularities are isolated from the cabin, though on washboard surfaces the LR2’s suspension clatters and punts any hopes for refinement out the window. Steering feel is somewhat responsive, and brake pedal feel and modulation are excellent.
Our brief off-road excursion indicated that the LR2 is less capable than Land Rover shoppers may expect. Multiple Terrain Response settings didn’t allow us to clear the deepest ruts – a low range or locking differential would’ve helped there. We did, however, appreciate the hill descent control system that limited speeds on the downhills.
