Often there is a 4x4 option but the take-up of this option is small. Larger SUVs have a much greater level of 4x4. Although some cars may boast an off-road aesthetic, they don’t necessarily have the 4x4 inter-axel locking or an off-road reduction gearbox. Vehicles may have retained the ride height and practicality of a 4x4, but many are two-wheel drive and have sacrificed some off-road ability for better on-road handling. Therefore, it’s imperative that you verify off-road capability before taking your vehicle over particularly rough terrain, as this could result in damage to the suspension.
