2012 Land Rover LR4 Video Road Test and Review
The Land Rover LR4 is a mid-size sport-utility vehicle that trades on the British brand's reputation for providing a solid combination of day-to-day luxury and outstanding off-road competence. The Land Rover LR4 can seat as many as seven passengers with its optional third row of accommodations installed, and it can swallow up to 90 cubic feet of cargo with those same rows folded forward (as well as tow up to 7,700 lbs). Safety gear found on the LR4 includes electronic traction and stability control, an anti-rollover feature, hill descent and start control and a full complement of airbags.
The Land Rover LR4 is motivated by a 5.0-liter V-8 engine that churns out a respectable 375 horsepower and 375 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission and full-time four-wheel drive system are standard with the SUV, and fuel economy is rated at 12-mpg in city driving and 17-mpg on the highway.
The LR4 starts out in base trim (MSRP $49,750), which features 19-inch wheels, parking assistance, heated leather seats with power adjustments for forward occupants, Bluetooth connectivity, a touchscreen stereo system, dual automatic climate control, keyless entry, dual sunroofs and interfaces for USB devices and iPods. The LR4 HSE (MSRP $53,975) introduces additional parking sensors, a third row of seating, a navigation system, a rearview camera and rear climate controls, while the LR4 HSE LUX (MSRP $58,995) includes seat heaters for those riding out back, a heated windshield and steering wheel, HID headlights, an integrated cooler, a louder stereo system and a higher grade of leather upholstery.
Both the Land Rover LR4 and LR4 HSE can be equipped with the Climate Comfort package, which cribs the various heated features from the HSE LUX. These two models can also benefit from the HSE Luxury package which installs most of the HSE LUX's comfort items. The HSE and HSE LUX trims are available with the Vision Assist package, which brings with it adaptive HID headlights, a 360-degree camera system, tow assist and tow hitch assist.
