doesn't do anything...easily
The 2010 Land Rover Range Rover features a range of useful but temperamental gadgets. TheCarConnection.com's editors warn that the Range Rover's controls and displays look great but aren't as straightforward as they could be in execution. Still, there's no shortage of features and options in the 2010 Land Rover Ranger Rover. From hard-drive-based navigation to the 12-inch TFT touchscreen output, there's a wealth of tech goodies to be had. Heated front and rear seats, a power tilt-and-slide sunroof, LED interior lighting, and Bluetooth integration are also available, as are a range of wood and leather interior options.
For 2010 the standard Land Rover Range Rover is the HSE, while the Supercharged adds a host of features to the more powerful engine. Neither should be confused with the Range Rover Sport, which is actually an entirely different model.
Cars.com reports that many features that are optional on other luxury SUVs, like "heated leather front and rear seats and a navigation system," are standard equipment on the Range Rover. Optional upgrades include a dual-screen DVD rear-seat entertainment system. AutoWeek points out that the standard navigation touchscreen "doesn't do anything quite completely or easily," however. That's a common theme throughout the Range Rover's selection of high-tech equipment.
For instance, ConsumerGuide says the 2010 Range Rover's instrumentation is "small and hard to read in certain light conditions." Edmunds also points out that the control interface is "very button-heavy" and that figuring everything out can be "a tad befuddling." Other features are easy to use, however, like the radar-based adaptive cruise control noted by Cars.com.
Despite a wide range of standard and optional luxury and high-tech features, the 2010 Land Rover Range Rover could be more user-friendly.
