safety features on the 2010 Land Rover LR4 include traction control, stability control with rollover mitigation technology [and] hill-descent control
The LR4 has not been crash-tested by either NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) or the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety).
Front side airbags are standard on the 2010 Land Rover LR4, however, along with side curtain bags covering first- and second-row occupants. Anti-lock brakes are also standard and include an all-terrain mode. Edmunds states the "stability control" system comes with "rollover mitigation technology [and] hill-descent control." Cars.com reports, "Antilock brakes and an electronic parking brake are installed" on the Land Rover LR4. In addition to front airbags, "side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags for the first and second rows are standard, and separate side curtains are included to protect third-row occupants."
Among other available features are "adaptive headlights, which 'look' around corners and adjust up and down to counter the effects of hard braking," Edmunds says. But "most interesting is an available five-camera view system that can show you clearances all around the vehicle," they add. "Even the perfect path to your trailer's hitch ball can be mapped with guide lines that overlay the image." Motor Trend's reviewers "surely enjoy being able to use cameras to monitor the precise placement of the front tires, to see how close the bodywork is to encroaching rocks and obstacles."
Visibility is a strength of the LR4. Edmunds notes its "commanding driving position and elevated 'stadium' seating give the driver a clear view of the road (or trail) ahead."
The 2010 Land Rover LR4 has interesting technology for safe off-roading and trailering, but no crash tests have been performed to confirm its impact protection.
