Things are looking altogether brighter on the roads now that the summer weather has arrived. Time to plan those road trips, weekend breaks and adrenaline-filled activities to entertain you, your family and friends. A 4x4 will provide all of the power your car needs to handle the most challenging terrain and help you reach interesting destinations.

And even if you do get stuck in a bank holiday traffic jam, where better to spend it than in a luxurious and capable car? Choose a used 4x4 and you’ll have more cash to help your trip go with a swing. ‘But where can we get our hands on the right used 4x4 in Bury?’ we hear you ask. The Northwest’s largest 4x4 centre awaits at cartime with a comprehensive range of makes and models. Here’s what you can expect to see...

Grab Adventure in a Land Rover Discovery Sport

Land Rover is one of the first names that comes to mind when you think about buying a 4x4, and for good reason. The Land Rover Discovery Sport is not only good looking, it can handle pretty much anything on or off road. 

So, if you’re heading out on a fun-filled adventure or adrenaline-fuelled expedition, the Land Rover Discovery Sport has both the luggage capacity (1,124 litres of it) and capability (317 lb/ft of torque) to get you there in comfort and style, with heated leather seats and panoramic glass roof as standard.

The Land Rover Discovery Sport is built for anyone with adventure in mind - just throw your kit in the back and away you go!

Strike a Pose in a Range Rover Evoque

A 4x4 doesn’t have to be boxy to be clever. In fact, the more petite proportions of the curvaceous Range Rover Evoque will make it easier to handle for some, ably assisted with a reversing camera and sat nav.

The panoramic sunroof and ambient lighting floods the cabin with light to allow you and your passengers to appreciate the beautifully crafted interior with leather heated seats and more connectivity than you could ever need: MP3, Aux, USB, Bluetooth and  DAB radio. 

The manual 2.0L diesel engine returns up to 66 mpg*, not bad for a car with a torque of 280 lb/ft. That’s fairly good pulling power for such a pretty face.

Get Practical in a Kia Sportage

With one of the best manufacturer warranties and excellent affordability, Kia is a great choice for any savvy used 4x4 car buyer. Seven years of standard coverage means that you’ll have more than a few years’ peace of mind when you buy a pre-loved Kia Sportage

There’s bags of space with a 564-litre boot capacity and roof rails that’ll give you the ability to fit a roof box or bike carrier for added practicality.

The Kia Sportage 4x4s come with either 2.0L petrol or diesel engines providing up to 61mpg* while  sat nav, reversing camera and helpful driving features, such as cruise control and lane keep assist will keep you on the right track. 

Strut Your Stuff in an Audi Q3

This compact 4x4 is more spacious than it looks and perfect for everything from the daily commute to weekend escapes. Wherever you drive, the Audi Q3 is sure to catch admiring glances as you enjoy dual-zone climate control, chrome interior trim, optional leather upholstery and Bluetooth connectivity.

Don’t be fooled into thinking the Audi Q3 is a compromise. It’s not the smallest Audi SUV, and is blessed with 420 litres of boot space and 280 lb/ft of torque - not bad for a small guy!

A choice of manual or automatic transmission, sports seats, a pallet of interesting colours and alloy wheel options (trim dependent) mean you can pick the 4x4 that really matches your personality. 

Ooze Confidence in the Volvo XC60

Volvo is probably better renowned for its safety record rather than its off-road ability. The Volvo XC60 combines both. A 98% adult occupant safety rating by NCAP, combined with 95% safety assist rating will allow you to drive with confidence knowing that you and your car’s passengers are well protected.

A 230mm ground clearance is handy for avoiding the lumps and bumps of more rugged roads while the stop/start function will help conserve fuel in standing city traffic.

Inside, voice command, automatic lights and rain-responsive wipers allow you to keep your hands firmly on the wheel and your mind on the road ahead… whatever it holds!
