2011 Land Rover LR4 Interior
This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.
Reviewers are impressed with the interior on the LR4. They report that the seats are comfortable (even the optional third row, which brings the seating capacity to seven), the materials are upscale, and that the interior features and electronics work well. There are also a number of available handy features, such as a drink cooling box in the center console, which reviewers like.
- "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 and even compliment the optional third row, which doesn't happen often in the compact and midsize SUV classes.
- "LR4 offers a commanding driving position with comfortable and upright seats. Headroom is ample. Legroom is good."--Consumer Guide
- "The seats are comfortable and supportive despite firm cushioning." -- Cars.com
- "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 modern standard interior features. For 2011, Bluetooth is standard on the base model, as is a LCD driver information screen. Trade up to the HSE model and you get a navigation system. A rear-seat DVD entertainment system is only available on the HSE and HSE LUX and costs $2,500.
- "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 navigation system itself is relatively simple to operate with intuitive on-screen menus.” -- Consumer Guide
- "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 42.1 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.
- "The tall cargo hold has ample volume with no 3rd-row seat, and reasonably good load space with it. Both rear rows fold flat to create a spacious load floor."--Consumer Guide
- "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
