It is a well-known fact that 4WD’s are no longer purchased just for having fun off the beaten track. Many city drivers prefer to drive a 4WD. Particularly popular for city drivers are vehicles like Land Rover’s smaller 4wd’s as they have low fuel consumption, excellent handling and can also be taken off-road on the weekends. They make a lot of sense.

The upholstery is kid-friendly and wipes down easily. This vehicle is spacious so travelling so everyone has enough space. The air conditioning is powerful and the music system is top notch.
