2022 Range Rover Sport get 5-Star Euro NCAP rating

In the event of a rear-end collision, tests on the front seats and head restraints showed that they provide good protection against whiplash injuries. Additionally, a geometric analysis of the back seats revealed good whiplash defence. In the event of a collision, the Range Rover’s sophisticated eCall system alerts the emergency services, and its “Post-Crash Braking” system automatically applies the brakes to prevent further collisions.

  • These models are the latest in a long line of Range Rovers to receive a five-star rating.
  • The new Range Rover scored 87 per cent for child safety and 72 per cent for road users.
  • The Range Rover Sport scored 85 per cent for occupant protection adults.

The new flexible modular longitudinal architecture that underpins both models serves as a strong base for a number of cutting-edge driver assistance technologies that cooperate to provide a responsive and comfortable ride. The new Range Rover, which comes in seating arrangements for four, five, or seven people, boasts up to 50% more rigidity than its predecessor. The Range Rover Sport is 35% stiffer than it was previously.

The Range Rover’s passenger area remained stable during the frontal offset test, according to the dummy readings, which showed that both the driver and passenger’s knees and femurs were well protected. However, because Land Rover was unable to show that occupants of various sizes and sitting positions would receive an equivalent level of protection, the score for this body region was reduced. The Range Rover would be an aggressive impact partner in a frontal collision, according to analysis of the impact trolley’s deceleration during the test and analysis of the deformable barrier following the test, so the score was reduced accordingly.

Based on dummy compression readings, the protection of the rear passenger’s chest during the full-width rigid barrier test was rated as marginal. All critical body areas were well protected in both the less severe side pole impact and the more serious side barrier impact, earning the Range Rover the highest rating possible. It was determined that the excursion control was sufficient. There is no protection against occupant-to-occupant injuries in the Range Rover in such collisions.

In the event of a rear-end collision, tests on the front seats and head restraints showed that they provide good protection against whiplash injuries. Additionally, a geometric analysis of the back seats revealed good whiplash defence. In the event of a collision, the Range Rover’s sophisticated eCall system alerts the emergency services, and its “Post-Crash Braking” system automatically applies the brakes to prevent further collisions.

In the frontal offset and side barrier tests, the Range Rover provided adequate protection for all vulnerable body parts of the 6- and 10-year dummies, earning top marks. To use a child safety seat with the child facing backwards, the front passenger airbag can be turned off. The Range Rover can be configured to properly install and accommodate all child restraint types.
