Because of the harsh working lives vehicles lead in these environments, customer feedback on the range meant thatSantanawere often far more aware of each model's failings than the Land Rover company itself was. This meant thatSantanabegan to engineer its own solutions to common problems into the models it produced and so originality betweenSantana's models and Land Rover's equivalents – a trend which led to the company's position today. For instanceSantanamodels featured anatomical seats, disc-brakes, turbo diesel engines, taper-leaf springs, parabolic springs.
