REVIEW: 2016 Land Rover LR4

 

Drivers in Albany who want an SUV that can handle rugged mountain terrain without sacrificing style or a luxurious interior should consider the 2016 Land Rover LR4. Staying true to Land Rover tradition, the LR4 is built for outdoor excursions. Unlike what you might expect from the luxury automaker, it also has an attainable price tag.

So, what’s there to love about the 2016 LR4? Read on for our full review:

Performance
The luxury SUV has a 3-liter supercharged V6 engine with 8-speed automatic transmission and stop/start technology that preserves energy while at a stop. With 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, it’s a powerful ride that can tow more than 7,700 pounds when upgraded with the towing package.

It’s not just a substantial engine that makes the 2016 LR4 perfect for off-roading. It also has four-corner air suspension that lets you adjust the height, so you can just as easily climb over rocks and boulders as you can let the kids get into the back seat. Additionally, it has Terrain Response controls that allow you to select the mode that’s most appropriate for the road ahead of you.

Styling
The 2016 Land Rover LR4 has the boxy design you’ve come to know and love from the British automaker, giving it ample interior space and classic aesthetic appeal. The geometric design also allows for a sweeping windshield that gives you the best visibility possible – a must if you’re going off road. Additionally, you’ll love the distinct asymmetrical tailgate and Alpine Roof, which includes a power sunroof over the front and glass panels over the rear so back passengers can enjoy the view as well.

Interior
You can choose between the standard 2-row, 5-passenger model or a 3-row, 7-passenger configuration. Each has plenty of head and neck room in the front and the rear and 42 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row. You'll also enjoy high-quality leather upholstery, 8-way power front seats, heated mirrors, a leather-and-alloy steering wheel, and climate control.

Features
The 2016 LR4 comes equipped with standard 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, an 11-speaker audio system with subwoofer, smartphone connectivity, and USB port. For your convenience, it also has cruise control, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, speed-responsive power steering, universal remote transmitter, and steering-wheel-mounted controls to limit distraction.

Safety
Safety equipment on the LR4 is as advanced as it gets, with the basic features like 3-point seatbelts and a full suite of airbags, as well as daytime running lights, dusk sensing headlamps, stability control, emergency brake assist, passenger airbag occupant detection, turn signals integrated in the mirrors, tire pressure monitoring, and ventilated disc brakes. You can also opt for a collision prevention system, mitigation braking, and blind spot monitor. 

Pricing
Starting at $50,400 MSRP
