Expert Quotes:

a cleaner and less utilitarian look
Car and Driver

The overall affects of the freshening are very slight and aren't immediately obvious unless the LR4 is parked right next to an LR3
Automobile Magazine

exterior styling continues to evoke the LR4's boxy forefather, the Land Rover Discovery, but in a thoroughly modern way
Edmunds

has an interior that is both practical and luxurious, and more in keeping with its cousins from Jaguar
New York Times

Frankly, this car makes some Audis look a bit drab and plasticky.
Winding Road

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.

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.

Conclusion

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

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.
