It Won't Break the Bank

The base price is $36,550. The HSE goes for $39,000 and the tricked out HSE LUX is $41,500.

On the HSE the upgrades include Adaptive Xenon headlamps with automatic leveling, satellite/HD radio, Bluetooth connectivity, an electro-chromic rear view mirror with Homelink, and electronic memory for the seats and mirrors.

For a few rupees more you can drive large in the LUX. The extra $2,500 gets you everything in the HSE plus Windsor leather seats (pictured), premium carpet mats and Dolby surround sound bumping out of a 14-speaker sound system.

The BMW X5 starts at $47,500 and all of the Mercedes SUVs, except the GLK, are more pricey. The LR2 is better looking than all of those SUVs which translates into even more bang for the buck.
