With the summer only a few short months away, there’s never been a better time to start planning your summer weekends in the outdoors. Whether you want to plan a barbeque on the highest peak or a camp out in the deepest woods, there’s sure to be a Land Rover out there to suit all your needs.
Land Rover Defender
If you’re looking for a car that simply isn’t afraid of anything, Hunters Land Rover Defender is the traditional, ground breaking car that every farmer and adventurer across the land yearns to own. Now equipped with a powerful 2.4 litre engine, the vehicle is guaranteed to get you where you’re going and how. Since 1948, there have been over 1.5 million Defenders produced and their popularity has never abated and with the new model just out, there’s no reason in the world why the Defender won’t make the perfect adventure car.
New additions to the car include a more efficient heating system that heats the cabin of the vehicle 40% quicker than before and can achieve a higher temperature by up to 12°C, making it perfect for if you’re going all Bear Grylls and decide to go it alone in the harshest of places in the desolate North Yorkshire Moors.
Land Rover Freelander
Of course, if the Land Rover Defender isn’t up your street, then the Freelander probably is. Both stylish and sleek, the Freelander is just raring to get dirt up its sides.
Accounting for 23% of all Land Rover sales since it was unveiled in 1997, the Freelander has continued to impress the masses with its ability of tackling all types of terrain, which makes it perfect for events such as the Hill & Ditch 4×4 Bank Holiday in Cheshire. With a five star adult safety rating issued by Euro NCAP and a four star Child occupant rating the car is also perfect for every day family events during the week; just don’t be surprised when you finally get the car off of the road and across those dirt tracks, because it will give you a 4×4 experience like no other.
Land Rover Discovery
Introduced in 1985, the Land Rover Discovery is one of the most popular and recognisable cars on the planet. Although extremely popular and robust in the city environment, it is a car that can only flex its muscles in the most challenging and beaten of terrains. With a 2.7 litre engine beneath the bonnet, there’s no adventure out there that the Discovery wouldn’t flinch at. With a maximum of 2558 litres of luggage room available, the car is excellent for those camping or festival weekends and can take a mountain of equipment without the slightest of worries.
Range Rover Sport
If you’re looking for the more sporting vehicle to tear up the ravines and smash through the cascades, the Range Rover Sport is the car for you. Hugely popular with footballers and adventurers alike, the Range Rover Sport offers a colossal 5.0 litre engine, which can reach 0-100mph in only fifteen seconds, that’s an amazing thought for a vehicle that weighs a total of 2.5 tonnes.
For those adventure days when you just want to impress everyone else on the course or rally, this is most probably the car to do it in. Also, you may be interested to know that once you’ve climbed all the mountains in the UK with the car, a typical three year old model with 30,000 miles on the clock can still be sold for 60% of its original value.
If traditional carnage and adventure is more to your taste, the Range Rover has been empowering and pursuing those white-knuckle terrains since its release in 1970. With its British 5.0 litre V8 engine there’s no reason why country or mountainside ventures cannot be taken in this beautiful vehicle. With more technological gadgetry than an Apple store, there’s no way you can get bored on your way to your Holiday. Why not for example, take the car on a specialised 4×4 holiday? With more than just a holiday to be had, 4×4 holidays provide more than just adventure, and there’s no reason not to have it in the newest Range Rover model.
