Winter weather is unpredictable at the best of times, but when you have a long journey to make, that uncertainty can make it very difficult to plan ahead.

If you've ever been caught in a sudden blizzard, a ridiculously heavy downpour, thick morning fog or dazzling sunlight reflecting from a wet road, you'll have a taste of how winter can challenge drivers - and that's even without taking into account the effect ice has on tyre grip.

There is a solution to help you cope with winter driving conditions though, and with great Range Rover finance deals, it's more accessible than ever to get your hands on a used Range Rover Evoque or a similar 4x4 and really benefit from all-wheel drive and suspension suited to winter roads.

At cartime we stock all the models of Land Rover and Range Rover Bury residents might dream of driving, and we're always happy to arrange a test drive so you can fall in love with the 4x4 of your dreams in person.

Our Range Rover and Land Rover finance deals help to spread the cost of a used Land Rover or Range Rover, and there's a choice between hire purchase and personal contract plans so you can eventually own the vehicle outright, or upgrade it to a newer model in a few years' time.

Your tyres are ultimately the only point of contact between your vehicle and the road, so by distributing the power to all four wheels, a 4x4 helps to make the most of whatever grip is available, even on wet and icy roads.

As the winter gives way to spring, there will be less frost around, but we have yet to get through the rainy season, and wet roads combined with dazzling low sunshine mean both you and your vehicle need to rise to the challenge.

Even just the elevated driving position in a 4x4 can help with this, changing the angle between you and the road, so that the reflected light is less distracting - so if you've never driven a 4x4, book a test drive today and experience it for yourself.

As always, cartime's stock of used Land Rovers and Range Rovers is constantly updated, with all models subject to our full mechanical check and valet service inside and out - so when you buy on a Range Rover or Land Rover finance deal from cartime, you get complete peace of mind about the vehicle itself and the terms of your finance deal, so you can drive away with confidence.

These are some of the most popular and versatile vehicles in our stock, up to the challenges of the north-west's high altitudes and hilly roads, and with plenty of space inside for the kids, the dogs, and any luggage you need to take with you too - or just for the weekly shop.

Check our used Range Rover and Land Rover pages on the website or come down to cartime to take a look at what's in stock in person, and we'll be happy to give you a tour of one of these most advanced of offroad vehicles, from adaptive suspension to air conditioning to keep you warm in winter and cool as the summer finally arrives.
