[safety] feature complement is impressive
Little information exists on the 2009 Land Rover outside the manufacturer’s safety specifications.
The 2009 Land Rover LR2 sports a list of safety features longer than that of 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 "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. It also mentions that the Land Rover LR2's "[safety] feature complement is impressive."
Drivers enjoy "fine outward visibility, though the thin heating wires embedded in the optional heated windshield take some getting used to,” says Consumer Guide.
Additional off-road specialty features add to the 2009 Land Rover LR2’s impressive list of safety gear.
