Consumer Guide



The Land Rover LR2 hasn't been crash-tested as of yet, but all models gain more secondary safety features this year.

Neither the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) or the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration)  has tested the LR2 since it was introduced, even in light of new test regimens and even new tests from the IIHS, including those measuring roof-crush and small-offset safety. The LR2 gets its baseline score from us because of the information we've reviewed for safety in similar vehicles, and in that from one structurally related to Volvo's XC60 crossover.

All LR2 crossover SUVs come standard with the usual airbags (including a driver knee airbag) and stability control, as well as all-wheel drive that's integrated with those safety systems to optimize traction and response to accidents. Rear parking sensors are standard as well, and this year, Bluetooth is included on all models--it's a worthwhile inclusion, we think, because of the prevalence of talking and driving.

Many of the other high-tech safety features found on the latest BMWs and Benzes are absent--features like blind-spot warning and lane-departure systems--but this year, LR2s with the optional navigation system also get a rearview camera with an assist mode that helps drivers connect a hitched vehicle.

Visibility is mostly good from the driver's seat. The driving position is somewhat low, compared to other Land Rover vehicles, and wide rear roof pillars can block some of the view. In the 2011 model year, the LR2 adopted larger side mirrors to help drivers stay on the lookout for potential trouble.

 

 

 

 

Conclusion

A rearview camera's a welcome addition, but other high-tech safety options are still off the Land Rover LR2's horizon.

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.
