2010 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Safety

8.0
On Safety

Safety continues to be a Range Rover Sport strong suit, with advanced stability control, hill descent control, and active roll mitigation helping to keep the vehicle upright and pointed the right way down the road even during emergency situations. Front and rear-seat passengers are protected by airbags, and standard anti-lock brakes with brake assist and electronic brake force distribution help maintain stability under braking. As with many expensive SUVs, there is no crash-test data from NHTSA or the IIHS.

Despite the lack of official safety ratings, the 2010 Land Rover Range Rover Sport does offer a wide range of standard safety features. Cars.com highlights the "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." Edmunds adds that the Supercharged is available with radar adaptive cruise control that works in concert with an advanced emergency braking system that "uses the forward-looking radar to determine if a collision is imminent and primes the braking system."

Though the 2010 Land Rover Range Rover Sport hasn't been rated by the major crash-testing agencies, its extensive selection of safety features provides a sense of security.

Large windows and an upright seating position "give the driver a commanding view of the road," though "large C-pillars...limit visibility" when looking rearward.
