2011 Land Rover LR4

The Good The Land Rover LR4 is one of the most capable off-road vehicles to ever pass through the CNET garage, thanks to a sophisticated Terrain Response system and air suspension. The Rover is quite luxuriously appointed for a vehicle as rugged as it is.

The Bad The cabin technologies we like to see are there, but they leave much to be desired where usability is concerned.

The Bottom Line The 2011 Land Rover LR4 may not be sophisticated from a cabin tech standpoint, but its power-train technology is most certainly worthy of note.

If the automotive landscape were to be metaphorically transposed onto a typical TV high school, the 2011 Land Rover LR4 would be the dumb jock. It is absolutely massive, as strong as an ox, and immensely capable when in its element. However, where cabin tech is concerned, it's not what you'd call intelligent. The Rover checks many of the boxes that we like to see filled on our list of available cabin tech options, but it only just barely meets our standards for what's acceptable from a modern tech car, and what's there can be difficult to use.

For example, while setting up Bluetooth hands-free calling, we ended up having to break out the user manual due to the system's complete lack of visual or audible prompts. For techies such as ourselves, having to dig for the manual is truly a humbling experience.
