What Is the 2015 Land Rover LR4?
The 2015 Land Rover LR4 is a three-row luxury SUV that seats five or seven and competes with the BMW X5, Lexus GX 460, Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, Acura MDX and Infiniti QX80. It technically comes only in a base trim level but can be upgraded with HSE or HSE Lux option packages. Four-wheel drive is standard.
What's New on the 2015 Land Rover LR4?
For 2015, the Land Rover LR4 includes the new Land Rover InControl Apps smartphone integration system standard. New side steps make it easier to enter and exit the vehicle.
How Does the 2015 Land Rover LR4 Compare to Other Three-Row Luxury SUVs?
The LR4 corners better than the Lexus GX 460, and its interior has more of an off-road design than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. While it has more cargo room than the Acura MDX, it's not as large as the pricier Infiniti QX80. In towing capacity, the LR4 can haul more than the GX and MDX, but the QX80 again offers more. Both the QX80 and the GL-Class start at about $12,000 more than the Land Rover LR4, while the Lexus is comparable in price, performance and luxury features.
What Features in the 2015 Land Rover LR4 Are Most Important?
The 2015 LR4 includes a 340-horsepower, supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and fuel-saving stop-start technology. Four-wheel drive is standard, and a four-wheel-drive system with an additional low range can be added.
Significant standard features include a front moonroof, middle and rear glass roofs with sunshades, 19-inch aluminum wheels, front and rear fog lights, a combination liftgate/tailgate with cargo access, 8-inch touchscreen, leather seats, an 11-speaker sound system, dual-zone climate controls and seating for either five or seven. Available features include a heated windshield, 20-inch wheels, a 360-degree camera, rear entertainment system, 17-speaker sound system, a "Cool Box" for keeping drinks cold, heated steering wheel, navigation system, power-folding mirrors, power-adjustable steering column and a fold-flat third-row bench.
As required in all new cars of this model year, the 2015 LR4 includes antilock brakes, an electronic stability system and front airbags. Also included standard are side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags. A blind spot warning system is available.
Should I Buy the 2015 Land Rover LR4?
If you enjoy a luxurious interior, tall seating position, tight turning radius and strong off-road ability, the Land Rover LR4 deserves a closer look. However, prospective buyers might take issue with the second- and third-row seats. The second row is narrow and difficult to fit child-safety seats into, and while the third row is larger than some, it's time-consuming to fold down. In addition, the cargo room behind the third row is minimal, and the flip-down tailgate can make it a challenge to reach luggage.
