Defender 110 P400 SE in White
Land Rover Defender 110 SE
Meet the Defender
Reinventing an automotive icon like the Land Rover Defender isn’t an easy mission. It involves taking special care to pay respect to the original car without upsetting existing fans by producing a parody of it.
It’s something Land Rover thought long and hard about before reviving the Defender name tag. After all, how do you create a product that proudly follows up on a vehicle beloved by everyone from mountain rescue teams to urban hipsters?
Well, the British brand decided the right approach was to leave no room for criticism, so it made the latest Defender more practical, more refined and more capable off road than its legendary predecessor.
The Land Rover Defender is a rugged SUV that fuses fantastic off-road ability (especially if you add the optional locking rear differential) with decent on-road manners.
If that’s the blend of abilities you’re after, it’s effectively in a class of one, but the Jeep Wrangler is even better in the rough stuff, while premium SUVs, including the Audi Q5 and Q7, are more comfortable.
With its bigger boot, the Defender 110 will make the most sense for many, but the 90 is usefully more compact and better off road.
The P400 is a 3.0-litre six-cylinder mild-hybrid petrol with 396bhp, and it is hot hatch-bating fast – put your foot down away from the lights and you’ll hit 62mph in as little as 6.0sec.
However, with an official claimed fuel economy of around 25mpg, it won’t be cheap to run.
Fans of the previous Land Rover Defender will love the latest car’s lofty driving position, which feels significantly higher than most of its rivals.
It’s easy to set everything up so it’s comfy, with even entry-level models getting 12-way electrically adjustable seats with memory settings, heating and cooling. All other versions except XS Edition get 14-way adjustment.
Whichever trim level you choose, the pedals, seat and steering wheel are well positioned relative to each other.
There’s lots of up, down and in-and-out movement to the steering wheel, and it’s electrically adjustable on all but the entry-level versions.
The Defender’s dashboard is very much fit for purpose, with chunky buttons that you can operate while wearing gloves.
All versions get clear digital instruments that you can configure to display information in a variety of ways. The menus aren’t quite as easy to work through as they are with the similar Virtual Cockpit system in the Audi Q7 though.
