The Met Office has issued warnings of hazardous road conditions after freezing temperatures hit the UK with snow falling in many parts. Despite this, Land Rover owners can count on the all-round capabilities of their vehicles to help them reach their destinations.
Land Rover has 60 years of driving experience, with a line-up of supremely capable vehicles which boast permanent four-wheel drive and pioneering technology such as Electronic Traction Control, Hill Descent Control (HDC) and Terrain Response - which includes a snow setting utilising the vehicles' traction aids. These all help ensure that Land Rover owners have total peace of mind when travelling in wet or icy conditions.

John Edwards, Land Rover UK managing director commented: "Poor driving conditions should be taken very seriously; so we are offering free winter health checks for all Land Rover customers. The dealership staff will ensure that wheels and tyres, lights, electrics, fluids and brakes are checked and screen wash topped up to the correct level. A welcome reassurance when conditions become treacherous."
