SAFETY | 8 out of 10
It's a fairly safe bet, but for now the real-world crash-test performance of the 2011 Land Rover LR2 still isn't known.
Neither the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) nor the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has tested the LR2 for crash safety.
However, the LR2 has a wide array of standard safety equipment. Those features include dual front, side, curtain, and driver-knee airbags; anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control with rollover protection; and a host of electronic programming that makes its all-wheel-drive system easier to use.
The LR2 also comes with standard rear parking sensors, but it lacks the latest tech-savvy options like a rearview camera, blind-spot warning and lane-departure systems.
Visibility is mostly good from the driver's seat. The driving position is somewhat low, compared to other Land Rover vehicles, and wide rear roof pillars can block some of the view. This year, the LR2 has larger side mirrors to help drivers stay on the lookout for potential trouble.
Though it hasn't been crash-tested, the 2011 Land Rover LR2 has some advanced standard safety features.
