The Land Rover Defender 110 is an all time classic vehicle - the fact that it's current incarnation is basically the same 4x4 vehicle as it was in the 1940's bears testimony to it's design and off road capabilities. Although technically more advanced with modern powerful deisel engines, safety features and more comfort options the Land Rover 110 is regarded as the best 4x4 by far. The Land Rover can cross the most demanding off road terrain. It is happy driving through sand, can cross deep water (some can be fitted with extras that take them into water up the windscreen) drives through the stickiest mud and the 110 can climb mountains as well as some sheep! The Land Rover's ground clearance, and the minimal front and rear overhang means that the 110 can climb 45 degree gradients (sideways if necessary) and it's unique axle set up allows the Land Rover to traverse awkward objects. The BMW X5, Mercedes ML, Toyota Land Cruiser and other such vehicles are 'soft roaders' in comparison to the king of the off road, the Land Rover Defender 110.
The Land Rover Discovery has evolved over the years into a sophisticated off road vehicle. Although the Discovery has more car like qualities than the Land Rover Defender it does not mean that it is any less capable than the Defender. The Dicovery is perhaps a more common site in cities but it can also be seen at very odd angles on a track up a mountain! The chassis and technology allows the Discovery to be a really capable off road vehicle and it is an odd feeling sitting in a Discovery at 45 degrees off road. To rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle for normal on road driving, from top rental companies in UK the driver must be between the ages of 25yrs and 75yrs and have a full vaild driving licence. This is NOT always the case for off-road 4wd driving - offroad 4x4 driving is often done on private land where no one drives the vehicle on tracks or any public route. There is usually a qualified instructor with clients - check this with the off road driving school. The age limit is usually the same as a driving licence - 'Scottish Quads' can take someone who has not got a drivers license around a field learning how to drive a Landrover - if the driving is good enough they maybe let loose on the track!
