Review of the amazing Land Rover LR4 2010 (Discovery 4)

NY was the Land Rover place to overhaul its entire line almost. After the upcoming year refreshes to Range Rover Sport and Range Rover, it really showed off the LR4 2010.

While LR4 (the name) is brand new to Land Rover, it is just for signifying the 4th Discovery generation (it’s called still Discovery outside America in North). Just like those other 2 Land Rover stylings, this great idea with the LR4 is simplify and smooth out. Outside all this lies a more aerodynamic bumper on front and an all-new light cluster LED. Inside there' innovative materials having a more friendly ergonomically layout. 'The outgoing LR3 has well over 100 international awards to its name. But for the new LR4 we’ve found ways to improve virtually every aspect of the vehicle’s design and engineering – some subtle, some major. New design signals comprehensive engineering change under the skin' affirmes Phil Popham, the Land Rover Managing Director.

The LR4 gets the new V8 5.0-liter engine (in both Range Rover units). Unlike Rangers, the Land Rover auto will not be getting the supercharged variant. The engine's rated on 375 bhp plus 375 lbs/ft torque, giving the LR4 a zero to sixty mph run time - 7.5 seconds. 'The new interior not only has a much more premium look and feel, it’s also gained improvement to its functionality. The new console inclines towards the driver, the switchgear and controls fall more readily to hand, and new LED ambient lighting helps make the cabin a more pleasant and more easily used space after dark. We’ve made the interior environment more premium too, with smoother surfaces, softer materials and close attention to critical details such as stitching' says Gerry McGovern, the Land Rover Design Director.
 
'The changes and upgrades for LR4 transform many aspects of the previous generation, at the same time enhancing the flexibility and versatility for which this vehicle is famous. It can carry huge loads in its spacious interior, climb mountains, cruise across continents, haul trailers* or transport up to seven family and friends in comfort. I can’t think of a more versatile vehicle anywhere' states Phil Popham.

'Our new 5.0-liter V8 was conceived from the onset with Land Rover models in mind. Designed with the emphasis on low-end torque, it is particularly suited to the LR4’s wide range of capabilities both on and off road'. Malcolm Sandford - Engine Group Chief Engineer.

'LR4 stays true to its clean, geometric, architecturally-inspired predecessors, while its new front bumper, lights and face with smoother lines and subtle curves, together with more color-coding, combine to enhance the overall impression of premium quality'. Gerry McGovern, the Design Director.

LR4 has sophisticated all-new remote key, offering available Push Button start and Keyless Entry. 'The interior of LR4 continues to offer the driver and passengers superb visibility and versatility. But the re-designed fascia and console architecture plus the use of premium materials, make the cabin a much more desirable place to be'. Gerry McGovern.
