Adult occupant

The Range Rover remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both front seat occupants. Range Rover showed that a similar level of protection would be available to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. Protection of the passenger dummy was good in all areas in the frontal test. In the side barrier test, maximum points were scored with every body region being well protected. In the more severe side pole test, dummy readings of rib compression indicated marginal protection of the chest, with good protection of other body regions. The seat and head restraint provided marginal protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearwardfacing restraint to be used in that seating position. However, inconsistent labelling may make the status of the airbag unclear to the driver and the system was not rewarded. The dangers of using a rearward-facing child restraint in the front passenger seat without first disabling the airbag are clearly marked in the car.

Pedestrian

The bumper scored maximum points for the protection offered to pedestrians' legs. However, the front edge of the bonnet was poor in all areas tested and did not score any points. In those areas where the bonnet might be struck by the head of an adult or that of a child, the bonnet provided predominantly good protection.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment on all variants and passed Euro NCAP's requirements. A seatbelt reminder system is standard for the front and rear seats. A driver-set speed limitation device is also standard but did not meet all of Euro NCAP's requirements and was not rewarded.
