March 2013 Issue of 4×4 Magazine

March CoverThere’s never a better time to own a 4×4 than when the entire country is blanketed in snow and ice – as it was a couple of weeks ago. I’m actually not a great fan – too cold for me – but it does certainly make me value my 4×4. A recent drive across East Anglia during the worst of the winter weather and my Hilux showed it was minus 9degC, yet I felt safe.

You’re not invincible in a 4×4, of course, and it’s stupid to think so, but driven properly you’re in a much better place. Not surprising then that used car website – – was claiming that searches for 4x4s were up 24 per cent, with individual searches up even more for; Range Rover, Volvo XC90 and BMW X5s. Of course, if you’re looking for a second-hand 4×4 you should be checking our back issues for expert tips and advice! In the March issue, on shelves now, you’ll find a comprehensive buyers’ guide focusing on second-hand pick-ups……

Keep safe, and enjoy the issue.
