Expert Quotes:

still one of the most comfortable-riding utes out there

third row is awkward to raise and lower
Edmunds

plush, well-damped ride with precise control
Popular Mechanics

The driver and passengers ride rather high in the LR4, which makes it feel, upon acceleration, as if one is in a small plane zooming close to the ground.
New York Times

What's still on my LR4 wish list? Seats that are easy to fold.
Cars.com

The 2011 Land Rover LR4 is available in five- and seven-passenger versions, and both of them include top-notch comfort for the first two rows, a hushed, refined cabin, and a reasonably plush ride.

In front, passengers get nicely shaped leather bucket seats with Land Rover's infinitely adjustable armrests-but they don't get much room for their knees, between the door panels and the wide center console. But the second-row passengers actually have it best; the LR4 requires a little taller step-in than crossover drivers will like, but the middle row has a good view of the world, and the bench seat is firm enough for long-distance comfort.

The optional third-row seat is strictly for children, but the "pedestal" third row has an elevated roof for more headroom and can fit adults in an emergency—they'll find the seating position to be awkwardly high though. It's very difficult to access, but it tucks away nicely when not in use.

Five-passenger versions have a large cargo hold instead, and all LR4s have decent console and cubby storage, as well as a shallow top glove box teamed with a larger, lower compartment. The LR3 had a reputation for unreliable operation, and the LR4 swaps in new electronic controls for the entire vehicle and a new engine-so buyers should understand both before signing on.

Second- and third-row seats can be folded completely flat to open up a vast cargo space of up to 90 cubic feet. Factor in two gloveboxes, huge cupholders, and plenty of cubbies for smaller items throughout, and the LR4 has the goods for a cluttered, frenetic family environment.

While build quality could vary wildly for its LR3 predecessor, it seemed, impressions of the LR4 so far haven't seen this to be the case with the LR4.

Conclusion

The 2011 Land Rover LR4 has enough space to get five adults around comfortably, but the third row is only for kids.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
