The New Defender

New Defender is built for the adventurous and curious, for those who know the value of community and strive to make a difference.

The unmistakable silhouette is familiar yet new. It looks tough and is tough but designed with purpose and engineered to excite. Iconic in name, shape and capability, Defender can be personalised to allow owners to make the most of their world.

Across seven decades of pioneering innovation, Land Rovers have earned a unique place in the hearts of explorers, humanitarian agencies and adventurous families across the world. Proven in the harshest environments on earth, the new Defender maintains this bloodline.

Technology

With a class-leading wading depth of up to 900mm, the optional Wade Sensing feature can prove invaluable. Unique to Land Rover, sensors located in the door mirrors give the driver pictorial real-time information about the water’s depth in relation to the vehicle, as well as maximum wading capability via the Touchscreen

Activity Key is an optional extra that makes living life to the full even easier. For extra convenience, you can wear the Activity Key and use it to lock or unlock your Land Rover if you prefer not to carry a key fob. The wristband is robust and fully waterproof, allowing you to enjoy a range of activities.

Discovery features optional third row seats with Intelligent Seat Fold, which allows you to configure the second and third row seating using switches in the load space, on the main Touchscreen or via your smartphone with our InControl Remote app.

Performance

Configurable Terrain Response debuts on new Defender, allowing experienced off-roaders to fine-tune individual vehicle settings to perfectly suit the conditions, while inexperienced drivers can let the system detect the most appropriate vehicle settings for the terrain, using the intelligent Auto function.

The new body architecture provides ground clearance of 291mm and world-class off-road geometry, giving the 110 approach, breakover and departure angles of 38, 28 and 40 degrees (Off Road height) respectively. Its maximum wading depth of 900mm is supported by a new Wade programme in the Terrain Response 2 system, which ensures drivers can ford deep water with complete confidence.

Safety

On dry land, Land Rover’s advanced ClearSight Ground View technology helps drivers take full advantage of Defender’s all-conquering capability by showing the area usually hidden by the bonnet, directly ahead of the front wheels, on the central touchscreen.

As a result, the new Defender redefines breadth of capability, raising the threshold for both off-road ruggedness and on-road comfort. It can negotiate crowded city streets as effortlessly as climbing mountains, crossing deserts and withstanding freezing temperatures. Its carefully honed handling delivers both a rewarding drive and first-class long-haul comfort across all terrains.
