The LR2 pitches a more rugged image than other luxury crossovers, both with its sheetmetal and its badge.
It's most like the Mercedes-Benz GLK in that respect; the GLK has less interior space but also has a new interior this year, more safety features, and a newly available diesel powertrain.
The BMW X3 is a viable alternative, though it's larger and often more expensive; in turbo-six form, it's nearly a sport sedan.
The Audi Q5 has a reputation for high sticker price too, and this year it spans a wider range of buyers with new hybrid and diesel engines and with a revamped supercharged six.
Volvo's XC60 has a reputation for safety and comfort in its corner, and it's also among the roomiest luxury crossovers.
The Cadillac SRX? It's fitted with the touchscreen CUE system this year, and got an improved V-6 engine last year to go with its creased sheetmetal and distinctly American take on the segment.
