Tip #14 Driving 4×4’s

Love them or loathe them, 4x4s can be extremely useful in difficult conditions. Some are also very refined machines. However, in normal road driving, bear in mind that they don’t handle like a conventional car due to their high centre of gravity and high-profile tyres.

High seating enhances views over hedges and traffic – use this to spot hazards early and plan ahead. But don’t enter bends too quickly or when braking, and corner more slowly than you would in a car.


Take care when changing speed and direction in a 4×4, particularly on fast roads.
