Why does a car manufacturer present its cars at a water sports fair? Because of the high functionality of its car models for many water sports!
Land Rover, founded in 1948, is promoting its newly developed advanced manoeuvring system for trailers at the boat show, which guarantees easy and safe reversing and parking. On the exhibition grounds between halls 11 and 16 you can register to practice reverse parking. At the Land Rover Pavilion, registration is handled by a charming lady on site, and waiting for a free trainer rarely takes longer than 15 minutes. Meanwhile, you can get information about the smart and powerful cars or you can reserve an appointment on a specific day, which will then be held free for you.
The initial instruction is provided in a white Range Rover Vela, and driving into a designated parking space with a trailer is practiced by yourself with a Range Rover Discovery.
Often the participants of this training are amazed at the ease of performing this manoeuvre, others have expected nothing less than that it would be easy and safe when driving Land Rover.
Trailer training by Jaguar Land Rover
The 27-year-old Selina Siegenthaler and Pascal Isler (27 years old) from Switzerland have completed this training and are thrilled. Initially they came to the fair to see the halls for the sports diving / kiting / wakeboarding / fishing and motorboats; however, this attractive training convinced them spontaneously; because Pascal can already manoeuvre a trailer, but Selina still has to practice...
In Hall 14 you will find another highlight of the Range Rover brand: the Defender, which had its world premiere at the IAA in September 2019. This model is the pride of the company, says presenter Matze Brandt; although his personal favourite is the Range Rover Sport Plug In (a hybrid; a mixture of electric and petrol).
The fully electric SUV from Jaguar I-Pace is a "speedster". This model and other Range Rover models can be booked in the foyer of the South Entrance Hall for a test drive in Düsseldorf, to get to know the convincing features of each model for a maximum of 45 minutes.
