Side airbags [and] full-length side curtain airbags...are standard.
Edmunds

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.

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."

Conclusion

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

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.
