The driver gets fine outward visibility
[safety] feature complement is impressive
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."
The 2008 Land Rover LR2 has the requisite safety gear and adds off-road specialty features, but it hasn’t been crash-tested.
