Consumer Guide


With its ample interior room, the 2011 LR2 is a "small" Land Rover more in concept than in reality.

The front seats are best for adults, with enough room for comfort in all directions. The seats themselves are without much side-to-side support, and the dash cuts down on knee room just a bit. The cushioning feels fine, though, and even with the available sunroof, tall drivers shouldn't have a problem finding head room.

It's much the same in the back seat, where there's abundant space for three kids, or even small adults, to go for a long ride. It's cozy for large adults, but it's far better than the back seats in some competitors like the Acura RDX. The seats themselves sit relatively high, and have good bolstering.

There's no third-row seat--the Land Rover LR4 owns that niche. So instead, behind the LR2's second row, there's enough space for a long weekend's worth of luggage. With the rear seat in use, the LR2 has 27 cubic feet of storage space; when that seat's folded flat, it makes 59 cubic feet of cargo room available. In raw numbers it's average, but the space is tall and useful. For comparison, it can hold more behind the seat than the Mercedes-Benz GLK (23.3 cubic feet), but it's a few cubes short of the component-sharing Volvo XC60's 30.8 cubic feet.

Storage is a bit lean in the cabin, too. Two cupholders in the center console sit a little too far back to fall to hand; the glove box is kind of small. Happily, most of the cabin is covered in good-quality materials, and the in-line six-cylinder is smooth and quiet.


Conclusion

The 2011 Land Rover LR2 can seat four adults and can swallow lots of luggage, but small-item storage is lacking.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
