SAFETY | 8 out of 10
In Edmunds brake testing, a Range Rover Sport Supercharged slowed from 60 mph to zero in 123 feet, an impressive result for an SUV that weighs nearly 6,000 pounds.
The IIHS and NHTSA haven't rated the Range Rover Sport. Despite the lack of official safety ratings, the 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport does offer a wide range of standard safety features: advanced stability control, hill descent control, active roll mitigation, and a huge array of standard airbags, plus anti-lock brakes with brake assist and electronic brake force distribution.
The Supercharged is available with radar adaptive cruise control that works in concert with an advanced emergency braking system that scans the road ahead and aids braking if it detects a collision is imminent. The high seating position, large windows, and low beltline make visibility forward and to the sides very good, though the large rear pillars limit visibility out the back somewhat.
Though the 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport hasn't been rated by the major crash-testing agencies, its extensive selection of safety features provides a sense of security.
