Land Rover Defender
The iconic Land Rover Defender gets a little upgrade for an early Christmas.
A new 2.2-litre diesel engine has replaced the 2.4-litre diesel, matching it for power, torque and fuel consumption, whilst a full acoustic engine cover replaced the previous splash cover, reducing radiated engine noise and improving driving refinement.
The 2.2-litre diesel engine produces 90kW @ 3,500rpm and torque of 360Nm @ 2,000rpm, CO2 emissions on the combined cycle are 266g/km for the Defender 90 and 295g/km for the 110 and 130.
The GFT MT 82 six-speed gearbox has a high top gear for cruising and enhanced low-speed crawl capability.
There is a choice of three more options as well as the choice of two new body colours, Barolo Black and Havana.
Smart new, contrast roof colours can now be chosen against the majority of the Defender paint palette. In addition to the standard Fuji White, customers can now opt for Santorini Black, Indus Silver, Orkney Grey or Firenze Red. The Firenze Red for example, can be chosen with the Santorini Black roof and the Baltic Blue with Indus Silver or simply retain their body colour.
Premium part leather seats which contour your body are available to the driver and front seat passenger, sporting the Land Rover logo on the backrest. The style of the seat naturally enhances driving support and comfort over the toughest of terrain. An integrated, centre stitch line on the headrest is also visible and adopted to the current standard seat in the Defender.
A Leather Pack is available – Part leather seats and leather steering wheel available on all body styles (except 130 derivatives).
The base audio system for the Defender has a single-slot CD player, USB, Aux jack and 4x50W amplification with an optional audio upgrade available for Bluetooth connectivity with remote microphone.
A plain black Pick Up hood is also available as an option and a plain beige hood for the 110 Double Cab Pick Up. Both options are in addition to existing styles.
All models have tinted glass and there’s the option of part leather standard seats in addition to the new premium seats.
