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.
