The Car Connection's Take

8.2

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2008 Land Rover LR2 splices the ruggedly stylish look that draws people to the legendary British brand with honest practicality, without the gas-guzzling and clumsy handling. The smaller, nimbler 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK sport-ute comes to America at just the right time.
