Defender is our most capable Land Rover yet.
You can opt for either a 90 or 110 body design together
with a choice from three levels of finish; S, SE and HSE.
You can have up to six seats in the 90 and the option of a third row with 5 + 2 seats in 110. Select from Defender, Defender First Edition, Defender X-Dynamic, Defender X and Defender Hardtop – and four Accessory Packs, each with a distinctive character.
Impressive proportions and a reassuringly recognisable silhouette help defines the Defender’s arresting looks. Whilst short overhangs, great ground clearance and upright front and rear elevations give credence to the vehicle’s capabilities. Floating pillars and alpine lights add to its personality, with solid shoulders and powerful squared-off wheel arches that communicate the vehicle’s purposeful stance. This is design with undoubted integrity and unrivalled purpose.
Uncompromisingly tough, the visible fixings for the major interior components underscore Defender’s absolute integrity. Strength, durability and highly functional interior architecture are in its DNA.
For instance, the interior’s exposed structural surfaces are finished in a highly durable textured powder coat, extending to the steering wheel and doors. Built to take the knocks, the cross-car beam is an integral structure that adds greatly to Defenders strength.
The spirit of boundless adventure is the first and lasting impression of the Defender’s interior. Thanks in part to its materials. These include a canvas-inspired Robust Woven Textile, which is offered with grained leather seats to reduce wear and tear in areas where it is needed most. Defender X-Dynamic takes this even further.
In the cabin, you’ll find Robustec – our most durable material. Ever. Its PU platelets mean it’s not only incredibly hardwearing but also abrasion-resistant. So much so, in fact, that when the fabric went for testing, it withstood the equivalent of a 30-year life cycle – more than triple the industry standard. Defender X unique hard-wearing seat materials include Windsor leather combined with Kvadrat Steelcut premium wool textile. There is also a choice of veneers and finishers on the console, including an open-pore wood available with a Rough-cut Walnut or Natural Smoked Dark Oak veneer.
Defender’s Durable Rubber Flooring is ready for anything – anything – you want to throw at it. Incredibly tough and, thanks in part to flush door sills, easy to clean, it features a chequer finisher which adds greatly to the compelling cabin design.
Go on. Get out there. Get it dirty.
1.2 million kilometres of on and off-road drives. 45,000 individual tests. From +50 to -40 degrees. Crossing the dunes of Dubai to sweeping down the straights of the Nürburgring. We’ve conducted altitude tests, drenched Defender in 85,000 litres of dyed water in our monsoon facility and engineered its tyres to withstand greater impact. In fact, we’ve gone to more challenging extremes than ever before to create a vehicle that’s capable of great things.

engineered so you can dream bigger. Push harder. Go above and beyond.
performance. Off and on-road. The system intuitively controls the torque
distribution between the front and rear axle. On challenging surfaces, such as
sand, grass or snow, torque can be balanced between the front and rear wheels
to maximise traction. In extreme conditions, where the front or rear wheels
lose traction, 100% of engine torque can be distributed to the opposite
axle for optimum grip. Our new Intelligent AWD System* takes this even further
by allowing variable torque distribution, resulting in a more precise and
performance and higher torque capacity – all without
sacrificing any of Defender’s inherent off-road capability. Plus, it delivers
enhanced fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions.
An additional set of lower gears can prove invaluable in challenging conditions such as steep inclines or declines, off-road driving or when towing.
suspension system combines double wishbones at the front with an advanced
multi-link rear suspension, to create an agile and responsive chassis. A
comfortable and capable drive is ensured by Electronic Air Suspension. Select
from an access height of 40mm below normal ride height to an extended height of
up to 75mm. For extreme off-road conditions, a further extended ride height of
70mm is available. Even across unsteady surfaces, it provides exceptional wheel
articulation and poise.
On or off-road. In
ice, rain or snow. The Electronic Active Differential ensures the greatest
level of traction. It does so by controlling the slip between the left and
right wheels on the rear axle, helping to deliver effortless capability. Not
only that, it’s far more effective than brakes when traction is lost, reacting
much faster and with a smoother response.
Thanks to a world-first
in Terrain Response, you can now individually configure Defender’s powertrain,
steering, differentials and traction control settings. This means you can go
beyond – be it the Siberian tundra, or rock crawling in Moab. So, get behind
the wheel and discover what you’re truly capable of.
Life has a habit of throwing unexpected challenges our way. That’s why Defender has a wading depth of 900mm, so crossing water need not be one of them. The Wade Program in Terrain Response raises the vehicle using Electronic Air Suspension3, while Wade Sensing uses ultrasonic sensors in the door mirror to visually and audibly alert you if the water approaches the vehicle’s maximum wading depth.
Whatever you take. Wherever it is you decide to go. Defender’s 3,500kg towing capability means it can readily respond to the most challenging demands. Combined with this is the optional Advanced Tow Assist, which allows you to reverse a trailer while Defender takes care of the counter- steering. The Touchscreen will also display both the current and desired trailer trajectory.
Pulling power and sheer strength is demonstrated with the Remote Control Electric Winch* accessory. This has a maximum pulling force of 4,536kg and can be operated up to 45 metres away. It’s the kind of no-nonsense practicality you need, say when you’re in the middle of the forest. Learn how to check, prepare, maintain and use a winch at one of our Experience Centres.
No more endless menus. No more fidgety commands. Pivi Pro, Land Rover’s impressive and seamless in-car infotainment system, enables you to do 80 per cent of most tasks with just one or two taps. All on the home screen. Engineered around a smartphone-like interface, it features an intuitive 10" Touchscreen that allows you to go right to what’s needed when you need it. Voice control reacts to a simple wake up phrase such as ‘Hello Land Rover’. Plus, you can even connect your smartphone* and enjoy your favourite compatible apps.
Defender features all-round exterior LED lighting as standard. LED lights are designed to last the lifetime of the vehicle and are more fuel-efficient as they use less energy. Premium LED headlights* with signature DRL produce a colour of light that is closer to daylight, helping you distinguish objects more easily and reduce driver fatigue. Driving at night or in poor visibility is made easier by Auto High Beam Assist switches on automatically and dips for oncoming traffic.
