Neither NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) nor the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) has tested the LR2 for crash safety.

It does offer plenty of safety equipment-an "impressive" amount, Cars.com says. Among the standard features are dual front, side, side curtain, and a driver's knee airbag; anti-lock brakes; stability and traction control; and a suite of electronics controls to make its all-wheel-drive system more user-friendly. Cars.com adds the LR2's stability control "can detect impending rollovers and attempt to prevent them by applying individual brakes."

The LR2 has rear parking sensors, but it does not offer other more tech-driven safety features like automatic braking, a rearview camera, or lane-departure and blind-spot warning systems.

The driving position is lower and more carlike than in larger Land Rover models, and TheCarConnection.com's editors find visibility to be a minor issue, since the rear roof pillars are wide and block some of the view. Others discover "fine outward visibility," including ConsumerGuide, which adds "the thin heating wires embedded in the optional heated windshield take some getting used to."

Conclusion

Though it hasn't been crash-tested, the 2010 Land Rover LR2 has some advanced standard safety features.

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.
