NEW Land Rover DEFENDER First Drive Review!

Added on 23 Aug 2020


The car i'm driving today is the new Land Rover Defender 110 with the top of the range 3.0l 6 cylinder 400hp engine! The Defender 110 is built as standard with air suspension where the new Defender 90 comes on spring suspension as standard with the option of air suspension.

A commercial derivative will also join the range later this year, priced from around £35,000 plus VAT. Following that will be a plug-in hybrid model, for which pricing has yet to be announced.

The new Defender will also be available with a greater breadth of capabilities than any other Land Rover before. The line-up will range from humanitarian and military models through to lifestyle-orientated versions that can be supplemented with more than 170 individual accessories, likely taking the price into at least Range Rover territory and potentially well beyond £100,000 for top-end versions.

Land Rover claims 1.21m people have configured a Defender on the brand's site, with over half choosing one of the four Accessory Packs: Explorer, Adventure, Country and Urban.

The Land Rover Defender has been reborn as a mainstream model for the global market, taking heavy design and capability cues from the iconic original, which was withdrawn from sale in 2016, and the 2009-2016 Land Rover Discovery 4.
