The 2015 Land Rover LR2 will be a carryover of this well known SUV. The new model will have some tweaks and small updates to offer, but they will be mild and modest. The reason to this lies in the fact that the LR2 will be replaced with an all-new model, called Discovery Sport, next year. The newest SUV will be designed in accordance to the Discovery Vision Concept presented at the this year’s New York International Auto Show, but there are still no viable information concerning its looks, specs or additional features. What we do know for sure is that the 2015 LR2 will be more than satisfactory, as always. It will offer only one engine, but with enough power and it will have many additional details concerning appearance, gadgets, equipment and comfort. The 2015 LR2 will come in three trim levels: Se, HSE and HSE LUX. This SUV will be replaced next year when the Discovery Sport gets out, so such a short time span for its sales really makes no justified reasons for a big or serious redesign. However, this doesn’t mean that the LR2 will be boring, poor in quality in any way or a waste of money. It is still a very good, reliable and comfortable luxurious SUV that can meet the demands of most buyers.
