What's still on my LR4 wish list? Seats that are easy to fold.
You'll have a great view of the road ahead from the well-placed driving position and consequently low-seeming hood. Comfortable seats in both the front and second rows enhance the ease of driving the LR4--though you won't mistake it for a crossover. Well-shaped bucket seats up front offer good support and infinitely adjustable armrests, though there's a bit less side-to-side knee room due to the wide center console.
Second-row passengers will also find themselves comfortable, with ample room and supportive seats. A high step-in and stadium-style seating, which positions the second-row seats slightly higher than the front seats, differentiate the LR4 from a crossover.
The third-row seating, however, is best reserved for those who need it, and often. With further stadium-seating positioning, head room in the third row is decreased, leaving room only for children or small adults.
Two large glove boxes, large upholders, and abundant cubbies make for enough room even when the LR4 is full of passengers. When it's time to haul gear and not people, the second and third row seats can be folded completely flat, exposing up to 90 cubic feet of space.
The predecessor LR3 hasn't had the best reputation for reliability, and the LR4 swaps in new electronic controls for the entire vehicle and a new engine--so buyers should understand both before signing on.
The first two rows of the 2013 Land Rover LR4 offer ample comfort for adults, but the third row is kids-only.
