4X4 WINTER DRIVING TIPS

Make a note of our top tips for safe driving this winter.

BE PREPARED

Towards the end of autumn, book a pre-winter check at your local Land Rover Retailer.

CHECK YOUR TIRES

Make sure your winter tires are properly inflated, and remember that over-inflation can reduce grip.

MAINTAIN VISIBILITY

Before you set out, use a scraper or de-icer to clear windows, mirrors, headlights and brake lights.

UNDERSTAND TRACTION

If the wheels start to spin or slide, ease off the accelerator until you feel the tires regain grip.

TERRAIN RESPONSE®

Land Rover’s Terrain Response system helps offer a more sure-footed drive on most surfaces and conditions.1

The Grass/Gravel/Snow setting assesses gradient, slip and yaw, temperature and pressure to engage intelligent traction on slippery surfaces, adding an extra measure of composure over snow and ice.1

HILL DESCENT CONTROL (HDC®)

Hill Descent Control is designed to help take the guesswork out of steep slopes by monitoring slip and braking automatically to maintain a steady speed.1

ALL-TERRAIN PROGRESS CONTROL

Land Rover’s new All-Terrain Progress Control (ATPC) is designed to provide composed progress on low-grip surfaces at an exact speed set by the driver.1

LAND ROVER INCONTROL® PROTECT™

In the unlikely event of your vehicle needing assistance, the Optimized Land Rover Assistance button will use positioning and vehicle health information to guide the roadside assistance provider to your location.
