Land Rover LR2 HSE
From Land Rover press: The LR2 reflects Land Rovers dynamic design, with a smart and spacious interior and an abundance of advanced technologies. It has been very well received around the world since its introduction, said Phil Popham, Land Rover's Managing Director. The HSE version offers subtle changes for those customers seeking a slightly different look to their LR2."
All of the technical highlights of the LR2 SE are carried over into to the HSE model. These include a 3.2-liter inline-six engine that develops 230 bhp and provides 0-60 mph acceleration in 8.4 seconds (0-100 km/h in 8.9 seconds).
The engine is matched to a new six-speed automatic transmission, with Land Rovers CommandShift offering manual sequential gear changes when required. There is also a driver-selectable sport mode for even more responsive performance.
The LR2 HSE is packed with technologies to improve both on-road and off-road performance. Land Rovers unique Terrain Response system is standard, making off-road use easier. Other advanced technologies include a new permanent intelligent all-wheel-drive system for superior traction and better on-road fuel economy. The patented Gradient Release Control works in conjunction with Hill Descent Control to improve driver confidence and control when releasing the brakes on steep and slippery slopes.
