Default Pre-2013 vs 2013 LR2 Head to Head

Hey there,

Not sure that I'm keen on the smaller turbo powerplant in the new 2013 - test drove one yesterday and although the lag isn't too awful, the non-linearity of acceleration when you giv'er really isn't the best. What I'm curious about is how they come off the line vs a 2012 (or earlier)? Anyone know of anyone dragging these two off the line and the results? (Video would be awesome!) Is the 2013 just all around faster or does it lag for a bit before the turbo fully kicks in and it pulls ahead?

There is only one engine option - at least here in Canada - a 4 cylinder 2.0L turbo.

As far as fuel economy goes, I admit to being heavy on the pedals so I routinely run 16L/100km - lots of cold starts in really cold weather and it drops to 25L/100km but on the other hand put it on the highway staying under 110 km/hr (ie keep the rpm below 2000) and it gets 8.5L/100km.
