[safety] feature complement is impressive
Cars.com

TheCarConnection.com's team of experts saw precious little outside information on the 2008 Land Rover LR2's safety specs.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has published crash-test results for the Land Rover 2008 LR2. The LR2 does sport a list of safety features longer than most SUVs'; it includes front side-thorax airbags, side curtain bags, and a driver's knee airbag, along with electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, and a host of other off-road-focused electronic aids that may help.

Cars.com reports that the Land Rover LR2's "[safety] feature complement is impressive." They also mention the "Ford's Roll Stability Control, which can detect impending rollovers and attempt to prevent them by applying individual brakes," as standard on the Land Rover LR2.

ConsumerGuide reports that 2008 Land Rover LR2 drivers enjoy "fine outward visibility, though the thin heating wires embedded in the optional heated windshield take some getting used to."

Conclusion

The 2008 Land Rover LR2 has the requisite safety gear and adds off-road specialty features, but it hasn’t been crash-tested.

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.
