New Land Rover Defender @ Shukers
The new model will represent 70 years of innovation and improvement; honouring the vehicle’s history for rugged solidity while thoroughly remaining a Defender for the 21st century.
Tough, durable and highly functional, Land Rover Defender is a compelling story of emotionally engaging design and engineering integrity.
The Defender’s exterior is without match. Its distinctive silhouette instantly demonstrates the vehicle's character.
An interior with purpose. Defender’s cabin can be customised to suit your demands.
Switching to the new architecture has allowed Land Rover to fit many of its existing engines to the Defender. The initial line-up will have a pair of petrols, one featuring mild-hybrid tech, and a couple of diesels. There’s a P300 four-cylinder turbo petrol with 296bhp – which is enough to take the Defender from 0-62mph in 8.1 seconds, while emitting 227g/km of CO2.
The two diesels are both four-cylinder units. The D200 has 197bhp for a 0-62mph time of 9.9 seconds, while the D240 produces 237bhp and takes 0.8 seconds off that time. Both diesels have the same efficiency figure, though, with NEDC-equivalent CO2 emissions of 199g/km and official fuel economy of 37.2mpg. These figures will change depending on spec and wheel size, however.
There’s also the P400, which mixes a straight-six turbocharged and supercharged petrol motor producing 395bhp with a
belt-integrated starter motor and a 48-volt lithium-ion battery.
This is the fastest model in the range, with a 0-62mph time of 6.4 seconds. It returns as much as 29.4mpg and emits as little as 220g/km of CO2.
TechnologyThe entry point of the range, simply badged Defender, has 18-inch steel wheels, a heated windscreen, LED lights, puddle lights, eight-way adjustable heated front seats, and the 10in Pivi Pro infotainment system. This display also incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus Land Rover’s ClearSight Ground View, which uses cameras to show what’s immediately ahead of the vehicle during extreme off-roading.
Defender S editions feature 19-inch alloy wheels, leather on the steering wheel and a centre console with an armrest. SE increases the wheel size to 20 inches and brings premium LED headlights with automatic levelling, blind-spot assist and on the 110, Isofix on the front passenger seat.
HSE is the ‘standard’ range-topper and offers a sliding panoramic glass roof, matrix LED headlights, further adjustment and cooling on the front seats, adaptive cruise control and a rear collision monitor.
There’s also ‘X’, which gets exterior design tweaks, heated rear seats, a black contrast roof, illuminated metal tread plates, Terrain Response 2 and a head-up display. It’s only available with the P400 straight-six mild hybrid powertrain, however.
In addition to these models, there are four themed accessory packs that will be offered. ‘Adventure’ includes a side-mounted gear carrier, an integrated air compressor, mud flaps, a portable rinse system with a pressurised water reservoir, and a backpack built into a rear seat.
‘Country’ adds wheelarch protection and a full-height loadspace partition – but omits the spare wheel cover and the backpack.
The ‘Explorer’ pack brings a raised air intake, a 26kg roof rack, the same gear carrier as ‘Adventure’, wheelarch protection and a spare wheel cover – plus a matte black bonnet decal.
‘Urban’ includes bright-metal pedals, a spare wheel cover, a front undershield and a bright rear scuff plate. It also opens up a range of alloy wheel upgrades, including a 22-inch five-spoke design.
In total, around 170 accessories will be available – and cars can be specced in a choice of seven colours, with some of them available with a satin wrap finish that will protect the paint. There are 12 wheel designs, ranging from 18-inch pressed steel items up to 22-inch alloys.
