Four-by-four driving, 6th edn      ISBN 978-0-957585-6-6 Author: Tom Sheppard

The future is four-by-four. Customers realise it makes sense and manufacturers are bringing the cost down to sensible levels.
‘Crossovers’ and soft-roaders are immeasurably smarter, drive-line and performance-wise, than they were just a few years ago with the advent of more responsive traction control.
But beware of slippery ‘brochure-speak’, be sure to do methodical pre–purchase checks, tick the chart boxes and be sure you get clear answers about the driveline.
All drivelines are not the same.
