4x4 Adventures @ IAA 2019

Higher, wider, more exciting: the IAA 2019 has treats in store for outdoor and off-road fans. Heart-thumping excitement can be had on the challenging off-road circuit with its extreme slopes, lumps and bumps and pot-holes.

Off the road: anyone who always wanted to discover the potential of SUVs and off-road vehicles will make a beeline for the Agora’s open-air site at the heart of the IAA. After all, such vehicles don’t often get put through their paces in day-to-day life. Here, on the IAA Offroad Parcours in the middle of Frankfurt, we are offering pure action and fun for everyone. The unique site covers over 4,000 square meters, and has three tracks with a combined length of 180 meters. A mix of extreme inclines, seemingly impassable plateaus and lateral slopes make the ride a real challenge. You will conquer lumps and bumps and a 13-meter seesaw, and successfully cover every conceivable type of terrain.

Selection of latest models of Jeeps and SUVs

The varied off-road circuit offers uphill and downhill gradients, steep ramps and an S-bend – the ideal place for experiencing performance and off-road capability in a range of different vehicles off the roads and freeways. Climb into the latest models from Audi (e-Tron), Ford (Ranger Raptor), Hyundai (Santa Fe and Tucson), Mercedes-Benz (G and GLE), Seat (Tarraco and Cupra Ateca) sowie Skoda (Kodiaq and Karoq) und VW (Touareg, T-Roc and Tiguan) to feel that rush of adrenaline. Rides will be available daily from 9 h to 19 h.

Seasoned professionals will drive you round the challenging circuit where some sections slope as much as 80 percent. Speed doesn’t matter here – what counts is skill in controlling the vehicle. Even the spectators are impressed when a wheel hangs in mid-air on an extreme slope. The seesaw in particular is sure to give visitors the butterflies. Come along and experience a ride with a difference. The registration takes place at the central container on the Agora. The vehicles are available daily from 12 to 22 September from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m..

Slopes at all angles – the IAA Experience offers visitors the full off-road experience. A food court and other attractions such as the E-Bike Parcours turn the Agora into an arena for special experiences. Get your ticket and discover mobility in all its facets.
