Land Rover displays off-road capabilities in Hanwella

A group of Land Rover and Range Rover owners recently received a first- hand experience on off-road capabilities of their vehicles in running on rough and difficult tracks. Fifteen drivers were provided an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the rough and tumble capabilities of their super-luxury rides at this first ‘Land Rover Experience’ event organised by Frontier Automotive, the sole agent in Sri Lanka for Land Rover and Range Rover, said Sheran Fernando, CEO of the company.

Issuing a press release, he noted that under the guidance of three professional trainers flown down by the company, they mastered a challenging 2.4 km jungle track at Club Ché in Hanwella, deploying the many modes of Land Rover’s ‘Terrain Response’ – a feature that optimises handling on multiple surfaces, from the asphalt and macadam of everyday driving, to grass, gravel, mud, ruts, sand and rock.
“Though usually purchased for its luxury and prestige, off-road capability is the key DNA of the Range Rover and Land Rover brand,” Mr. Fernando said.

This event was aimed at showcasing the breadth of capability of these vehicles, he added. “Many users do not often have an opportunity to experience these capabilities and the satisfaction of mastering off-road driving in a way that does not damage the natural habitat. This event was intended to provide Land Rover customers an opportunity to practise the best driving techniques in managed conditions”, he said.

The event is to be conducted three or four times a year at the Land Rover Experience Centre at Hanwella for the benefit of the many Land Rover and Range Rover users in Sri Lanka.
