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



The 2009 Land Rover Range Rover offers a feeling of security and the features to back it up.

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 2009 Land Rover Range Rover's array of airbags; Cars.com reports that "curtain airbags typically cover the entire window."

ConsumerGuide cautions 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." Cars.com also reports that "thanks to tall windows and a mildly raked windshield, forward visibility is excellent." However, this source mentions that the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover's large head restraints—likely a safety feature themselves—"can reduce side and rear visibility a bit."

Conclusion

The 2009 Land Rover Range Rover has the safety features to match its reputation and secure feel.

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.
