WAECO 4x4 Action Track

Don’t forget to check out the Waeco 4x4 Action Track while you’re at the show.

A purpose-built 4x4 track at the Australian International Motor Show offers visitors the chance to evaluate a range of different vehicles.

Show-goers are able to experience as close to a real-life off-roading situation as you can get in the city.

Exhibiting 4WD brands are:

  • Hyundai - Santa Fe
  • Jeep - Wrangler
  • Kia - Sportage, Sorento
  • Lexus - LX 570
  • Mitsubishi - Triton GLX-R, Pajero
  • Nissan - X-TRAIL Turbo Diesel
  • Renault - Koleos
  • Toyota - Landcruiser 200
  • Volkswagen - Touareg

Visitors to the show interested in a particular 4x4 will receive a VIP pass to the 4x4 track to experience the vehicle’s performance and are driven around the track by a professional driver.

Track is built to demonstrate the abilities of each vehicle and obstacles are designed to demonstrate the vehicles’ increasingly advanced technology and abilities.

The see-saw gives an indication of vehicle balance, the hill structure tests traction and control, the moguls and rocks show-off ground clearance and the new addition of the u-turn at the end of the track demonstrates the tightness of the turning circle

The vehicles navigate the track in slow motion; just as experienced four-wheel-drivers would approach such obstacles in real-life situations.
