2013 Land Rover LR2: 17/24 mpg
EPA





Gas mileage is on the upswing at Land Rover, and with a powertrain transplant from its Evoque sibling, the 2013 LR2 is more efficient this year.

Last year's LR2 drew power from an in-line six that wasn't the most frugal engine in its class--not even close. At 15/22 mpg, it was rated below even the Mercedes GLK and Audi Q5, and was well off the mark set by the Volvo XC60---a vehicle that shared its architecture, but also offered a front-drive model.

This year, the LR2 adopts the Evoque's 2.0-liter, 240-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder and an eight-speed automatic. It's good for a bump to 17 miles per gallon city, 24 miles per gallon highway, according to the EPA, or a combined rating of 20 mpg. That puts it closer to the competition, even to the much more powerful BMW X3.

Though Land Rover has access to a diesel powertrain in other markets, it's not expected to offer the option in the U.S.

 

Conclusion

Gas mileage gets better in this year's Land Rover LR2, pulling closer to the class standards.

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.
