Without NHTSA or IIHS testing completed, TheCarConnection.com’s editors were unable to draw conclusive evidence of the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport's safety features or capabilities. Crash tests on the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport had not been conducted by either the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) when this article was published.
There are, however, plenty of reassuring safety features in the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport. Cars.com reports that standard safety features "include antilock brakes, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags, an electronic stability system with rollover mitigation technology, and front and rear parking sensors." In addition, the "rear seats have child-safety seat anchors."
According to Cars.com, "large windows and high seating position give the driver a commanding view of the road," but "the large 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport C-pillars, however, limit visibility." The 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged models "can be equipped with adaptive cruise control that maintains a preset distance between the Range Rover Sport and a vehicle in front of it," the reviewer says.
