Land Rover LR4 Interior

Reviewers say the 2014 Land Rover LR4 has an elegant interior design that features top-notch materials. The LR4 also offers more overall cargo space than many luxury midsize SUVs, and test drivers say that the first- and second-row seats are spacious and comfortable. Still, a few reviewers complain that some gauges are tough to read. 

  • "That's all before you get to the impeccably turned-out cabin, which can accommodate five or seven in the kind of comfort that's usually the province of luxury cars, not SUVs." -- Edmunds (2013)
  • "The LR4's cabin successfully exudes both the upscale ambience of a modern luxury vehicle and the rugged sense of a serious off-roader. Quality materials abound, and the hefty buttons and dials are intuitive and clearly labeled." -- Kelley Blue Book (2013)
  • "Drivers will find a meaty leather-wrapped steering wheel, and soft touch material throughout, including a leather-covered dashboard (new for 2013)." -- Left Lane News (2013)

Seating

The 2014 Land Rover LR4 seats five, or seven when equipped with an optional third-row seat. The third row is criticized by reviewers for being small, which is a typical complaint about midsize SUVs. The first and second rows, however, receive high marks for passenger space.  Reviewers appreciate the clear sight lines and the upright seating position in the LR4, and several say the standard glass roof gives the cabin an airy feel. 

  • "One of the most overwhelming initial impressions of piloting the 2013 Land Rover LR4 comes from the high and upright seating. This, combined with lots of glass, provides some of the most unencumbered sight lines you'll find in any type of vehicle." -- Edmunds (2013)
  • "The 2nd-row seat is comfortable, with more than adequate headroom and legroom. Three adults can fit, but we wouldn't recommend it on long drives. Access to the 3rd row is complicated by the tall step up and a narrow pass-through. Space back there is suitable only for kids." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
  • "Legroom is good in the second row, but the third row is best left for kids." -- Kelley Blue Book (2013)

Interior Features

Standard features on the 2014 Land Rover LR4 include Bluetooth, two USB ports and a standard 380-watt Meridian sound system. Optional features include a navigation system and a rear-seat entertainment system with wireless headphones. An available multi-camera system gives the driver a view of the area around the LR4 while parking. 

Reviewers like the multi-camera system, which they say is useful for off-roading and parking lots. Some reviewers think that small markings make the LR4’s gauges difficult to read, and that some audio settings can only be made by hunting through menus on the stereo’s touch-screen display. Still, other reviewers like how easy most other controls are to operate.

  • "While the physical instruments are large, their markings are small and sometimes hard to decipher at a glance. The most commonly used controls are separate from the available navigation system, which is a plus. Many secondary functions, though, require going through the dashboard mounted touchscreen. Getting to those portions of the audio system can require drilling through several menus, which takes more time than it really should." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
  • "A nifty 5-camera system is available that relays a surround view of your LR4, letting you see where your eyes can't." -- Kelley Blue Book (2013)
  • "Controls are large and extra beefy for easy grip while remaining within easy reach of the driver." -- Left Lane News (2013)

Cargo

The 2014 Land Rover LR4 has 9.9 cubic feet of space behind the third row. With the third row folded, there's 42.1 cubic feet of space. The LR4 has 90.3 cubic feet of space behind the first row, and reviewers like that the second- and third-row seats fold flat. The LR4 has a clamshell tailgate that opens in two pieces. One piece opens upward, like the cargo door in most SUVs, and the other smaller piece opens downward, providing a place to sit. However, some reviewers complain that the bottom part sticks out too far, making it tough to load cargo. 

  • "Both rear rows of seats fold flat to create a spacious load floor. The clamshell-style tailgate is the subject of debate: Some testers praise its versatility, while others say the bottom part sticks out too far, complicating loading and unloading. There are numerous useful bins and cubbies in the cabin." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
  • "Most buying the LR4 more as a family vehicle than a jungle tool will find convenience in fold-flat functionality for the second row of seats and the optional third row, too." -- Edmunds (2013)
