The all-new Land Rover Defender is the reimagining of a British icon, reshaped and redesigned for life in the 21st-century.
Famed for its legendary off-road ability, rugged exterior, and simple interior, the Defender was the perfect descendant of the original Series Land Rovers.
Such is the draw and status of the Defender name, however, that Land Rover were compelled to bring the model back after production of the original car ceased early in 2017.
The latest Defender is once again available in two lengths, and the tradition of the previous Defender is honoured, with the 90 and 110 nameplates returning to denote the different wheelbase lengths. The 90 is a short, three-door model with seating for up to six, while the 110 is a longer, five-door model which can seat up to seven.
A choice of petrol and diesel engines are available, ensuring the new Defender has the power and efficiency to handle every environment.
A four-cylinder P300 petrol and a six-cylinder P400 petrol with mild hybrid technology are available from launch, while two four-cylinder diesels – the D200 and D240 – offer supreme fuel efficiency and impressive low-end grunt.
A Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle [PHEV] will join the range at a later date, giving the new Defender the ability to move under electric-only power for the first time.
In addition to being available in two body-styles, the new Defender will also be available in a range of trim levels. S, SE, HSE, First Edition and top-of-the-range X models in addition to four accessory packs – Explorer, Adventure, Country, and Urban – mean that no two Defenders will be the same.
Add to that an accessory list that stretches to 170 individual items, and the personalisation possibilities are virtually endless.
One thing the new and outgoing Defenders have in common is absolutely class-leading off-road ability.
Land Rover’s updated and configurable Terrain Response system is debuted on the new Defender, and in tandem with impressive off-road geometry and a wading depth of 900mm, this 4x4 is ready to take on the toughest of challenges.
The updated off-road expert is also world-class on-road, thanks to carefully-honed handling and impressive interior comfort.
The cabin is 21st-century-ready, with advanced technology such as a next-gen touchscreen interface as well as Jaguar Land Rover’s new Pivi Pro infotainment system.
Software updates to both the vehicle and its entertainment system can even be delivered over-the-air, negating the need to visit a Land Rover retailer when a new release is available.
