No crash testing has been conducted on the 2010 Land Rover Range Rover. Nonetheless, with its wide range of safety features, the 2010 Range Rover is sure to inspire confidence. Radar-based adaptive cruise control, an optional Surround Camera system that lets the driver see a full 360-degree view around the vehicle, a complete slate of nine airbags, a whiplash reduction system, pre-tensioning seatbelts, and side impact beams shroud occupants in a cocoon of high-tech aids.
ConsumerGuide points out the hill descent control, which is "designed to limit speed on steep descents," is also standard on the 2010 Range Rover. They go on to note the rearview camera and front and rear obstacle sensors, which aid in parking and maneuvering the vehicle. In TheCarConnection.com's research, all sources remark positively on the 2010 Range Rover's standard airbag complement. In combination with all of the safety equipment above, the Range Rover inspires a lot of confidence.
Cars.com notes that despite the Ranger Rover's size, "tall windows and a mildly raked windshield" add up to "excellent" forward visibility. However, ConsumerGuide cautions that visibility to the sides and rear is blocked by "thick headrests and roof pillars," making use of the obstacle detection and rearview camera systems "necessary." Cars.com agrees, noting that the large head restraints in particular "can reduce side and rear visibility a bit."
The 2010 Land Rover Range Rover's safety features live up to its reputation for security.
