2008 Land Rover LR3

A true , the LR3 is a competent mid size SUV in the family. While prowess has always been a hallmark, 2008 LR3 makes its mark on the tarmac too. Improvements for the 2008 LR3 include revised cabins with wood trim options, improved leather and enhanced craftsmanship to increase premium feel. Changes also include functionality improvements to the electric front seats with the addition of 8-way passenger seat and driver’s seat power lumbar.

LR3 interior provides a sense of comfort, luxury and technology, with high levels of in-car infotainment systems. Outstanding road dynamics on- as well as off-road have been achieved through a number of technological innovations that make their production debut with the 2008 . Land Rover’s patented Terrain Response system can be activated with the flick of a switch to maximize traction and optimize drive-ability and comfort.

There is a choice of five or seven seats with the third row, cleverly folding away flat into the load platform. The tailgate is split into two parts with the top, glazed part opening independently of the base.

The 2008 Land Rover LR3 is currently available in two engine variants: the 4.4 litre 300 bhp petrol V8 and 4.0 litre petrol V6. Bot engines are matched to a six-speed ‘intelligent shift’ electronically controlled ZF automatic transmission that offers a sport mode to deliver more performance and a Command Shift operation which gives the driver full manual control of gear changing.
