If you’re planning on heading out into the outback, you might want to drive a vehicle with a bit more ability to navigate challenging roads. The vehicles which have extra traction, and more power when taking on inclines are 4WDs, and some drivers may also appreciate the extra storage space, particularly if they’re travelling in a group.
It is important to note, however, that our suppliers do not allow their vehicles to be taken off sealed roads. So if you plan on any off-road driving you will need to seek out a specialist company.
