4x4 WINTER DRIVING TIPS
Make a note of our top tips for safe driving this winter.
Towards the end of autumn, book a pre-winter check at your local Land Rover Retailer.
CHECK YOUR TYRES
Make sure your winter tyres are properly inflated, and remember that over-inflation can reduce grip.
Before you set out, use a scraper or de-icer to clear windows, mirrors, headlights and brake lights.
If the wheels start to spin or slide, ease off the accelerator until you feel the tyres regain grip.
ALL TERRAIN RESPONSE
Land Rover’s Terrain Response system lets you optimise your vehicle’s performance effortlessly on any surface.
The Grass/Gravel/Snow setting assesses gradient, slip and yaw, temperature and pressure to engage intelligent traction on slippery surfaces, making your Land Rover vehicle one of the best 4x4s for driving in snow and ice.
HILL DESCENT CONTROL
Hill Descent Control takes the guesswork out of steep slopes by monitoring slip and braking automatically to maintain a steady speed.
ALL-TERRAIN PROGRESS CONTROL
Land Rover’s new All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) ensures composed progress on low-grip surfaces at an exact speed set by the driver.
In the unlikely event of a breakdown, InControl Protect can transmit your location and vehicle diagnostics data to Land Rover assistance, who’ll have you back on the road in no time.
Everything you need for your next sub-zero adventure.
