2020 Defender


Select the sand driving program when driving on terrain that is predominantly soft. For example, dry sand, deep gravel, or deep unpacked snow.


Do not select the sand driving program when driving on packed snow or ice. Selecting the sand driving program in these circumstances could result in reduced vehicle stability and braking performance, potentially leading to personal injury and vehicle damage.

In the event that automatic braking systems restrict the vehicle's progress, switch off Dynamic Stability Control (DSC). DSC should be switched on again as soon as the difficulty is overcome. See DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL (DSC) OVERVIEW.


It is recommended that the mud ruts driving program is selected if conditions become wet and deep enough to cause the wheels to sink. See MUD RUTS.
