Even though I'm focussing on the T870 SUV it's also worth mentioning the sports car model, the F830 Sports Car. It is not a 4x4 but it is equally amazing, just not for off-road!

This model is incredibly similar from a technical point of view except is does not have the 4x4 functions. It has the same set of features and an equally vibrant range of colors which you can see in the comparison table above. Here is the Henes sports car in all its glory:
The sports car might actually be your preference, although the 4x4 SUV is impressive many kids relate better to sports cars because they look so good.

Introduction To The Henes Broon T870 Luxury Kids Electric Car
It is difficult to know what to say about this T870 other than it is awesome. If you are a car geek then you will love all of the attention to detail. It is nothing short of the best kids car around. You probably have not seen one of these beauties driving around the neighborhood. They really put those Power Wheels cars to shame with their stunning looks and precision engineering.
Everything that you can see on this Hummer style car works. By this I mean that the turn signals thru to the stop lights, head lights, hood, trunk, door handles all work as they should. A child will really believe that they are driving a real car. In fact, it is a real car in all but size. The synthetic rubber tires give it extra traction and the car has dual-drive motors allowing you to drive it in real 4x4 mode.
There are literally so many functions and features on this car that it is hard to list them all without missing anything out. Nice touches are the 7" Android tablet display mounted in the dashboard. The tablet can b used to Navigate the car, or it can simply be used as an entertainment center for your child when they are sitting in the vehicle. The tablet is WiFi enabled so you can download anything from the Google Play store to use on it.
Of course, it has stero speakers built into the front of the dashboard so your child can listen to their favorite tunes or stores while they are on the go.
One warning: you will want to drive this car yourself, but as an adult you will be too big to fit in it! People will take photo's when you take the car out!

Parental Remote Control
Every detail of this ride-on has been thought through properly. The 2.4Ghz remote control can be used to drive the car when within range. Of course, a parent might be concerned that the car could go out of control when it is out of range of the remote. No such issues here. The remote control gently vibrates when the car is about to go out of range.
This gives you a chance to catch up with the vehicle to control it with confidence again. If the car does go completely out of range then it will coast gently to a stop. That means no hard stops on hills or other difficult terrain where a toddler might get stuck.

As well as a steering wheel, brake pedal and accelerator pedal, the car is started by a push button. There is a key that is used to pop the trunk but you don't need it to start the car. As the battery is stored under the hood in the engine compartment there is not much room for anything else in there, but there is a little storage space in the back.
The turn signals come on automatically if you turn left or right in the car which is pretty neat and there are switched fort headlights and side lights.
The door handles work like regular cars which most kids will appreciate. There are 3 driving modes which are like what you might find in a contemporary BMW. Comfort, Normal and Dynamic. These driving mode will alter the sensitivity of the brakes, steering and responsiveness of the shock absorbers on each wheel giving a different driving experience for different terrains. The car works really well off-road as well as on smooth asphalt.
The manual mode can be over-ridden when the car is in remote mode so that 100% control can be given to the parent using the included remote. The car then becomes the Worlds coolest and largest Remote Control (RC) vehicle.
The T870 comes in Red, Cream, Yellow, Black and White.
