Land Rover Defender Car Lease
The new Land Rover Defender features a host of new in-car tech that brings enhanced connectivity to make life easier in the rugged off-roader.
The old Land Rover Defender became a design icon and the new model puts a modern twist on the boxy original. It’s a little more rounded and smooth-looking and the front end in general is much curvier; it gets a rounded face and a flatter bonnet with angular grooves, reminiscent of the newest Discovery.
The new Defender has six trim levels available. The range starts with the standard ‘Defender’ model, followed by S, SE, HSE and First Edition trims. The Defender X version sits at the very top of the range. Standard Defenders get a ‘Resolve’ textile interior, while S and SE cars get a grained leather one, HSE models get Windsor leather and Defender X cars get a Windsor leather/eco-friendly textile mix.
The Defender 110 can be configured into five-, six- or seven-seat layouts (thanks to the Defender’s gear shifter being mounted on the dashboard, allowing three-abreast seating at the front).
At launch, there are four engines available: one petrol, two diesels and one petrol-electric mild hybrid. No matter which one you go for, it will come with an eight-speed automatic transmission, designed to make gear changes as smooth and fast as possible.
The purely petrol-powered engine is called the P300. It’s a twin-turbocharged, four-cylinder with 300hp. Both diesel engines are four-cylinder, twin turbocharged units The less powerful of the two engines is the 200hp D200, followed by the 240hp D240 unit.
The mild-hybrid P400 has a twin-turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engine. Combined, the engine and its electric motor pump out – you guessed it – 400hp. The hybrid’s motor will give the Defender 550Nm of pulling power, as well as regenerative braking, which will collect energy that would otherwise be wasted as you brake.
The new Land Rover Defender lives up to its ‘rough and ready’ heritage. Heavy hauls – on the road or off of it, as well as deep water – shouldn’t prove a problem for it. It can tow up to 3,500kg, can carry 300kg on its roof and has a wading depth of up to 90cm.
Unlike the previous model, the new Defender will have semi-autonomous driving features. Available for the car are automatic emergency braking assist, lane-keeping assist, traffic-sign recognition software, cruise control and speed limiters.
