The 2008 Land Rover Range Rover offers a superior level of safety but has not been tested yet by federal or private groups.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has not yet tested the Range Rover 2008, nor does the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have figures for this year's Land Rover Range Rover.

The 2008 Land Rover Range Rover has myriad safety features, but hasn’t been tested yet.

Unsurprising in a vehicle with its high price tag, the 2008 Land Rover Range Rover comes with an impressive number of safety features. According to ConsumerGuide, the base model's standard safety equipment includes "hill descent control designed to limit speed on steep descents...rearview camera [and] front and rear obstacle detection." This is, of course, in addition to anti-lock brakes, a full complement of airbags, and an electronic stability system with rollover mitigation technology. TheCarConnection.com notes that all sources comment favorably on the 2008 Land Rover Range Rover's array of airbags; Cars.com reports that "curtain airbags typically cover the entire window."

Cars.com also reports that "thanks to tall windows and a mildly raked windshield, forward visibility is excellent." However, this source mentions that the 2008 Land Rover Range Rover's large head restraints "can reduce side and rear visibility a bit." ConsumerGuide says that the "view aft and to the sides [is] blocked by thick headrests and roof pillars, making the standard obstacle detection necessary. The rearview camera also helps."
