The updated model of the Land Rover LR2 was first introduced in 2013 when the vehicle received a fresh new turbocharged four-cylinder unit and a more luxurious interior and the ultimate Terrain Response off-road system.
The new LR2 recently spied in photos, is based on the Range Evoque platform, firstly seen in mule tests, and will be launched on the market starting with 2015.
Both the Range Rover Evoque and the new LR2 are based as well on the old EUCD design from Ford, with some significant updates to bear.
The 2015 Land Rover LR2 is mainly based on aluminum to help reduce weigh. The 2015 is expected to be bigger in size than its flagship Evoque, with similar styling as well.
Since we are talking about the styling, the extra-size makes room for a seven-seat choice, as the Rover`s plan is to make the car favorite amongst families, with a five and seven-seat option, even a compact option as well.
Under the hood, the 2015 Land Rover LR2 will be sporting a new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, developing around 240 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque, with a nine-speed automatic transmission as standard.
