This new Defender is one of the most significant and well-excused revivals of any car. Retaining some of the details from the original, this new model respects the past rather than being defined by it. As such, the Defender can be made into a modern-day 4x4 that perfectly combines utility with go-anywhere ability, but not at the expense of modern-day creature comforts and usability.

Reimaging the original Defender was always going to be a challenge, but it’s one Land Rover performed admirably. Channelling the ruggedness of the classic, but now with more creature comforts that make the Defender much better suited to day-to-day driving, it’s a model that’s already proven popular.

There are three clearly defined versions available – the short-wheelbase, two-door 90, the extended eight-seat 130, and then arguably the sweet spot in the range, the right-sized 110, which brings impressive practicality but still in a manageable footprint. 

This latest Defender is a true icon imagined for the 21st century, with a recognisable silhouette but one that’s been thoroughly modernised. Key design details such as minimal front and overhangs serve a purpose rather than just being there for design's sake – they give the Defender an excellent approach and departure angle for those looking to use their Defender off-road.

Other details such as Alpine light windows in the roof and the side-hinged rear tailgate and externally-mounted spare wheel are also nods to the original.


While the Defender might be billed as the more utilitarian model from this firm, it still gets all the technology of its far more luxurious siblings. This includes an 11.4-inch touchscreen featuring the award-winning Pivi Pro infotainment, which is fantastic to use. Another impressive feature available on the Defender is its ‘ClearSight’ rear view mirror, which can be flicked at the press of a button to offer a live video feed instead of being a mirror. It’s ideal if there are taller passengers sat in the rear seats.

The Defender is also available with an innovative 3D surround camera system that can also show you where the wheels are underneath the car – ideal for off-roading on tougher terrain.

Engines & Performance

Land Rovers offers a choice of petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid versions of the Defender, though we will cover the latter in a separate section. 

In terms of diesel, there are the D250 and D300, both of which use a 3.0-litre engine with mild-hybrid technology developing 247bhp and 296bhp respectively. 

If you’d prefer a petrol, there is the P300 and P400, using a 3.0-litre unit developing 296bhp and 396bhp respectively. At the top of the line-up sits the P528 V8, using a mighty 5.0-litre V8 engine putting out a significant 518bhp, and with a soundtrack to match. This is the model you want for those seeking the most thrills, with the V8 able to accelerate from 0-60mph in 5.1 seconds, while being accompanied by a thrilling soundtrack.

Plug-in Hybrid 

Land Rover has recently introduced a plug-in hybrid version of the Defender. Known as the P400e, it features a 2.0-litre petrol engine paired to an electric motor for a combined 296bhp. 

The P400e also uses a 19.2kWh battery, which when fully charged allows for a range of up to 27 miles. It can be rapid charged using a 50kW unit, however, which takes around 30 minutes. 

It’s easy to see the appeal of the plug-in hybrid where efficiency is concerned, as with the batteries charged regularly, you could get some excellent efficiency figures. Land Rover claims 109.4mpg, while CO2 emissions of 59g/km are excellent for a vehicle of this type.
