2010 Land Rover LR4 Interior
This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.
The LR4's interior is greatly improved for 2010, and reviewers don't have one bad thing to say about it. Changes for the better include revised center controls, a new steering wheel and LED ambient lighting.
- "The LR4's interior is a step above its predecessor with added leather trim and more attention to overall comfort. The LR4 will even let you adjust your seat bolsters for added support. I like that!" -- Mother Proof
- "Aside from the engine, the area of greatest improvement for the LR4 is the interior. Gone is the confusing and unintuitive infotainment system and in its place is an easy to use touch-screen unit. All of the materials used, from the dash to the door panels, are softer and more luxurious than the LR3's." -- Automobile Magazine
- "Inside, the LR4 has a revised interior that brings new switchgear and electronics, more wood, and a more modern look-all of which make for a richer and more premium environment that is nearly on par with the top-of-the-line Range Rover." -- Car and Driver
- "Inside it's all ambient lighting, soft-touch surfaces, and available premium leather with stitching of Range-Rover quality. Wood accents the console and doors, and there are fewer buttons controlling more features." -- Motor Trend
Reviewers find the LR4's seats very comfortable. New for 2010 are front seats with longer bottom cushions and optional adjustable side bolsters. However, reviewers have not yet reported on how they feel. Reviewers do compliment the optional third row, which doesn't happen often in the compact and midsize SUV classes.
- "Even with the driver's seat pushed forward to accommodate a particularly big dresser, I was comfortable driving the LR3. The high ride gives you a commanding position on the road, and the flat surfaces around you -- such as the window controls, center console and top of the dash -- seem to fit the rugged appeal of this SUV." -- Detroit News
- "The seats are comfortable and supportive despite firm cushioning." -- Cars.com
- "Although the third row offers decent room, the seating mechanisms aren't as slick and easy to operate as we've experienced in the competition." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "The third-row seats are fairly easy to reach and aren't just for kids, as is the case with many sport-ute third seats. Even 6-footers have decent room in them, although there isn't much legroom to spare." -- MSN
Reviewers generally agree that the LR4 is loaded with a long and impressive list of standard interior features. For 2010, it gets a simplified touchscreen and revised center controls, which are received well by reviewers.
- "A Jaguar-sourced touch screen infotainment and navigation system greatly simplifies the interior and cuts down on the number of buttons, although Jag's system isn't exactly fast-acting and can be a bit frustrating to use." - Car and Driver
- "As we've mentioned, the confusing infotainment system has been simplified and the touch-screen is much more intuitive to operate than the old collection of buttons and dials. The new iPod interface is well-integrated and there is also an option to play music files from a USB memory stick." -- Automobile Magazine
- "The 2010 LR4 has also made a large leap forward to meet the expectations its well-heeled buyers have for modern electronics. This Land Rover offers keyless push-button start, an electronic parking brake, a fully integrated iPod connection that is fully operable via greatly improved steering controls, Bluetooth and hard-drive-based navigation." -- Edmunds
Versatile cargo capacity is one of the LR4's strengths. It features 44.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row, though space is reduced to 9.9 cubic feet when the third row is in use.
- "Sometimes we need a vehicle that can ford a river or pull an elephant out of a mud bog, but during my Land Rover test, I needed the 90 cubic feet of storage available with the second- and third-row seats folded down. The loading space isn't completely flat, but it was roomy enough to fit nearly everything from an apartment but the mattress and box springs." -- Detroit News
- "Numerous useful bins, cubbies in cabin, but glovebox difficult to open if passenger seat occupied." -- Consumer Guide
- "In both versions, the rear seats fold flat to create a cargo area more than six feet long." -- Kelley Blue Book
