2014 Land Rover Range Rover Safety

8.0
Safety
With an all-aluminum body structure that was all-new for 2013, the 2014 Range Rover hasn't been crash tested yet, but it offers a flotilla of safety equipment.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) haven't yet put the Range Rover through its data-acquiring, crash-test paces, and it's not likely they will, given the Range Rover's high price tag and low expected sales volume.

Nonetheless, we feel confident in assessing the Range Rover's safety score based on the engineering behind the aircraft-style aluminum body structure and extensive safety equipment list. Ample standard airbags, advanced traction control systems, standard four-wheel drive (with its own selectable traction modes), hill-descent control, hill-start assist, adaptive headlights--the list goes on. On the V-8 supercharged models, the traction selection system can even predict grip levels on the terrain ahead.

The Range Rover's long list of safety equipment and aircraft-like architecture promise good safety even in the absence of crash scores.

A surround-view camera is also standard, offering a top-down view of the vehicle for safe and precise maneuvering when parking. Standard Bluetooth with voice control helps keep the driver's hands on the wheel.

Blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, and the Range Rover's inherently good visibility all further make it a likely candidate for safe driving.
