A wide range of models
The family is a truly individual range of cars that caters for all needs, with models to suit everyone. The short-wheelbase, three-door Defender 90, seating up to six, and the stretched, five-door 110, with the option of a third row of seats, were joined in 2022 by the largest member of the unstoppable SUV family, the Defender 130, which offers unforgettable adventures for up to eight adult passengers seated in three full-size rows. For those looking for a light commercial vehicle category, the versatile and hard-wearing Defender Hard Top may be the perfect companion.
A compact companion for adventure
Even the smaller three-door model, the Defender 90, is no compromise: it's smart, adventurous, practical and safe for the whole family.
This short wheelbase, three-door version not only impresses on and off road, but also offers its driver and passengers a unique experience and comfort with the latest innovations. It is as technologically advanced as it is robust. Equipped with mild hybrid technology and available with a wide range of Ingenium petrol and diesel engines, the Defender 90 is available in a choice of up to six-seater versions. Land Rover's new Pivi Pro infotainment system is intuitive and user-friendly.
Passengers enjoy a spacious interior, although the body is no longer than the average lower-midsize family car. The key to the Defender 90's excellent maneuverability is its tight turning circle of 11.3 meters. With a choice of 170 different accessories – including remote-controlled electric winches, a roof tent and inflatable waterproof awnings, more traditional tow hook systems and roof racks – it's almost impossible to find two identical Defender 90s on the road.
For off-road enthusiasts
With its perfect proportions, the Defender 110 knows no bounds – whether it's off-road or on the road. It is a perfectly engineered blend of modern conveniences and classical styling. This roomy, luxurious adventure vehicle can work as an everyday transporter. Still, it is an off-road master, more capable than other Land Rover and without the truck-like ride, testers point out.
The Defender 110 has a choice of five engines: two diesels, two petrols and a plug-in hybrid. It comes with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, with low-range capability and four-wheel drive as standard. It is a roomy five-seater, although there is space inside for up to seven people with an optional third row of seating.
Its Pivi Pro infotainment system is easy to use, quick and good to look at, having – as standard – a curved 11.4-inch touchscreen with navigation, voice control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Options include a roof tent and an inflatable waterproof awning, allowing it to be turned into a camper van. Expedition ‘roof rack’ and side ‘gear’ carrier further improve its adventurous spirit.
A sophisticated explorer
The largest version of the Land Rover Defender, the 130, which offers unforgettable adventures for up to eight adult passengers in three full-size rows of seats, opens up a new dimension for the unstoppable SUV family. Every detail shows understated confidence, from the firm stance to the minimalist, refined finishes.
The electrified engines include a hybrid inline six-cylinder petrol and two inline six-cylinder diesels. All Defender 130 engines come as standard with Land Rover's Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (iAWD) system and a ZF-developed eight-speed automatic transmission.
Modern off-road adventures are made more comfortable and safer than ever with the latest generation of online technologies and chassis systems, including an award-winning infotainment system, standard Electronic Air Suspension and Passenger Air System Plus.
