Design With its upright stance, short front and rear overhangs and straight waistline running front to rear the new Defender captures the essence of the old model. Alpine light windows set in the roof are another design echo. The rear door is side-hinged and there’s the option of a door-mounted spare wheel. Inside, it’s functional and minimalist, with a low, flat-top dashboard, cast from magnesium alloy, that’s a structural part of the car. A central ‘jump’ seat is optional for the front, giving the option of five, six or 5+2 seating. Boot space in the five-door 110 longer-wheelbase model is 1075 litres, rising to 2390 litres if the second row of seats is folded. A shorter 90 model will be introduced later.
Performance Buyers face a choice of two petrol engines, the four-cylinder P300 and six-cylinder P400. The P300 hits 62mph from a standstill in 8.1sec with 227g/km CO2 emissions. The 396bhp P400 uses mild-hybrid technology to deliver 406lb ft of torque, a 0-62mph time of 6.4sec, economy of 29.4mpg and CO2 of 220g/km. Alternatively, two four-cylinder diesels, the D200 and D240, both deliver 317lb ft of torque and 37.2mpg, but the D240 is faster off the mark with 0-62mph in 9.1 sec rather than 10.3. There is no manual transmission option.
Technology Driver and passengers enjoy Land Rover’s next-generation infotainment system, called Pivi Pro, accessed from a 10.0-inch digital touchscreen. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility comes as standard, and system updates can be made over the air. The range will include Defender, S, SE, HSE, First Edition and X models, and there are four accessory packs called Explorer, Adventure, Country and Urban depending on your needs. Winches, a roof-top tent and waterproof awnings are all on the options list for the adventurous of spirit.
Safety Defender is the first Land Rover model to feature next generation braking technology that provides quicker and quieter responses than conventional systems, enhancing the driving experience. Blind Spot Assist comes standard while the optional Driver Assist Pack includes Adaptive Cruise Control and Rear Pre-Collision Monitor, which alerts following drivers who are failing to slow down by automatically flashing the hazard lights.
