2011 Land Rover LR4 Styling

8.0
On Styling
Visually, the LR4 is the most conservative and classic of Land Rover's models, other than the Range Rover. The LR4 was officially new last year, but its styling is mostly carried over from the former LR3. The upright, safari-chic look—with a tall, boxy body and short overhangs—shares plenty with the smaller LR2 and the big Range Rover-though it's certainly the most vertically inclined.

Other cosmetic updates last year included painted bumpers, a new honeycomb grille, new headlamps, and tail lights.

The interior of the 2011 Land Rover LR4 excels in the details—something that wasn't necessarily true with its predecessor, the LR3. It's completely fresh and swaps out the plasticky bits of the LR3 for a suave leather-trimmed dash with rich wood trim, softer-touch materials, and far more logical placement of controls. High-end trims get perks like walnut trim and premium leather with new stitching.

The 2011 Land Rover LR4 looks classically rugged and ready on the outside but has a plush, well-detailed interior.

That said, just as in other Land Rovers the interior is still a little busy, with more individual buttons than other luxury vehicles. There's been less condensing controls into a centralized interface—a trend that's followed the popularity of smartphones and the like—but many will appreciate it.
