Antilock brakes and an electronic parking brake are installed
TheCarConnection.com notes that the 2008 Land Rover LR3 has substantial safety equipment. However, crash tests have not been performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
Cars.com reports, "Antilock brakes and an electronic parking brake are installed" on the Land Rover LR3. In addition to front airbags, "side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags for the first and second rows are standard, and separate side curtains are included to protect third-row occupants." Edmunds asserts, "Safety features on the 2008 Land Rover LR3 include traction control, stability control with rollover mitigation technology [and] hill-descent control"; in addition, "rear parking sensors are included on all [Land Rover] LR3s, while front bumper sensors are standard on the HSE and optional on the SE." Furthermore, "adaptive headlights, which 'look' around corners and adjust up and down to counter the effects of hard braking, are also available."
Edmunds also reports that in the Land Rover LR3, "a commanding driving position and elevated 'stadium' seating give the driver a clear view of the road (or trail) ahead."
The list of standard safety equipment indicates that the 2008 Land Rover LR3 provides good levels of protection for its occupants, but crash-test results are still in the offing.
