TAKING ON MOTHER NATURE: Whether it’s a sodden field or extreme mud and ruts, Land Rover's are designed to take on the worse elements and come out on top.

South Africa has seen its fair share of torrential rain in July and August especially in Limpopo and Cape Town. When it comes to peace of mind nothing tackles the elements better than a 4x4.

The tough, go-anywhere capabilities of Land Rover vehicles are proving invaluable as people across SA suffer the consequences of torrential rain and flooding.

TERRAIN RESPONSE TECH


Floods have damaged homes, washed out major public events and ultimately cost lives.

Having a clear view of the road ahead is important when roads are flooded and a raised driving position is a standard feature of all Land Rover models.

Automatic wipers and headlights fitted Land Rover's benefit drivers during poor visibility while at night, adaptive headlights, which provide directed illumination during turns, makes for safer driving.

ABS, electronic brake assist, traction control and dynamic stability control are offered as part of the list of comprehensive safety features. Should you find yourself on poor road conditions the all-wheel drive system automatically adjusts drive between the front and rear axles to achieve the most traction.

In more challenging conditions, the Terrain Response adapts vehicle systems to cope with different off-road environments.

Depending on the model, you could benefit from a 360-degree camera system to get a better sense of your surroundings. If you're caught in a flash flood, Land Rovers are designed to keep going, with wading depths up to 700mm.
