The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is a one-of-a-kind vehicle: an extreme off-road convertible with the on-road handling and ride of--well, a true off-roader. The 2009 Land Rover LR2 is a good option for those who like the legendary British marque’s styling but not its clumsy handling and extreme gas-guzzling.
