The new Land Rover Defender 90 is now available, representing 70 years of innovation and improvement! This is without question a Defender for the 21st century, but one that still honours the vehicle’s history and solidity. This model is thought to be the most capable off-roader that Land Rover has ever produced.
More About The New Land Rover Defender 90
Despite its two-door layout, the 90 can accommodate up to six people. A commercial derivative will join the range later this year, and following that will be a plug-in hybrid model. The Land Rover Defender has been reborn as a mainstream model for the global market, taking heavy design and capability cues from the original.
The new Defender is available with a greater breadth of capabilities than any other Land Rover before. The line-up has just about anything you could need, from humanitarian and military models through to lifestyle-orientated versions. You can complete your model with up to 170 accessories.
This is a car designed to look like it ‘can do the business’ according to Land Rover design director Gerry McGovern. The design is all about emphasizing the car’s off road capabilities. The idea was to make it look tough but approachable, and this means that many of the fixtures have been kept visible. There’s even a 10.0inch digital screen, but it has deliberately been kept out of the dash. This vehicle isn't trying to pretend to be something it’s not.
Boot space behind the second row is 1075 litres, rising to 2390 litres if the second row of seats is folded.
The company says it is the stiffest body structure it has produced. Although it is a reworked version of the firm’s existing modular architecture, it is described as being 95% new.
Land Rover revealed that the test regime the Defender has been subjected to far exceeds that of any other model it has produced. The desert, high altitudes and the Arctic were all tested. In total, the car had to be signed off on 62,000 test criteria prior to launch.
Buyers can expect a vehicle that is modern, comfortable, and really enjoyable to drive.
Equipment and options
There are accessory packs available, and these are all designed to give the car different characters. With Urban, for instance, you get 22in wheels, a front undershield, side tubes and a scrub plate on the rear.
Buyers can also opt for split colour paintwork or a satin-finish protective film, which is used to wrap the car over a choice of metallic silver, grey and green paint. There are even pet packs available for transporting a variety of animals, along with a roof-top tent and inflatable waterproof awnings.
