A distinctive silhouette of Defender is easy to learn and minimal front and rear overhangs provide excellent angles for entry and exit. The designers at Land Rover have created a new vision of the famous Defender of the XXI century, giving the new SUV a strong and purposeful posture and providing a window on the roof, and at the same time retaining such a characteristic and recognizable elements like the rear boot door and a spare wheel mounted on it.
The main design Director Land Rover Gerry McGovern says:
“We have created a new Defender and are confident that he is ready for any adventure. In the design of the past of the car we are not deterred, but rather inspired. Its original grille, elegant surface and command posture give it a modern and confident look, which distinguish this family of cars. So we left important items that make the car so recognizable Defender”.
Update the image of the present Defender also touched the interior. Visible structural elements and mounts that were previously hidden. They highlight the concise design and practicality of the car. One of the innovative solutions: setting the shift lever to the console, which made space for an optional center front folding seat, as in early versions of the Land Rover.
The result of the Defender 110 provides configuration of the seats 5, 6, or 5+2, and the amount of space for storage behind the second row seats up to 1075 liters. The volume is increased to 2380 litres if you fold the second row seats.

An example of this reliability
New specially designed architecture D7x (for extreme trips) from Land Rover at its core is the lightweight aluminum construction type, monocoque, creating a rigid body of all bodies of Land Rover. He’s three times stiffer than a traditional frame options, so provides an excellent basis for a completely independent pneumatic or spring suspension and goes well with modern engines.
New it withstood more than 62,000 engineering tests. Body structure and chassis has been specially designed to easily withstand the testing in extreme conditions, during which the car is experiencing repeated and prolonged exposure to beyond the normal conditions of use of SUV and passenger car.
During testing in the development phase, prototypes were more than 1.2 million miles in the harsh conditions of our planet – 50 °C heat in deserts to 40 °C Arctic frost, rising to a height of 3000 m above sea level in the Rocky mountains, Colorado.
Professional world-class on-road and off-road
Unsurpassed off-road capabilities significantly set a new Defender. The permanent all-wheel drive, two-stage automatic transmission, Central differential and optional active locking rear differential gives confidence that the car has everything to overcome the treacherous sand of the desert, freezing Arctic cold under any conditions.
Technology Configurable Terrain Response first appeared in the new Defender, allowing experienced drivers to create their own settings to adapt to current road conditions. At the same time, less experienced drivers can enable the system to select the optimal settings for off-road in automatic mode.
The new architecture of the body for ground clearance 291 mm and the innovative geometry of the terrain and provides the values of the angles of approach, the longitudinal permeability and the Congress 38, 28 and 40 degrees, respectively, for the wheelbase 110 (height off-road). The maximum depth of overcoming Ford is 900 mm. Also, the driver will help the new program of overcoming of Ford in the Terrain Response 2 system which gives confidence in overcoming water obstacles.
Modern technology ClearSight Ground View from the Land Rover allows drivers to use the off-road capabilities of the Defender car in full now, they will be able to see on the Central touch screen of the area that usually closes the hood.
As a result, the new car Defender extends, raising to a new level off-road qualities and comfort control on the track. To move around in dense city traffic as easily as to climb high into the mountains to cross the desert and overcome the ways in conditions of low temperature. Emergency handling gives an unforgettable experience of management and excellent comfort during long trips in all road conditions.
Power and efficiency ***
Due to the wide range of modern petrol and cleaner diesel engines, you can be assured that the new Defender will be a powerful, manageable and effective under all conditions. At the same time next year, the range will complement the plug-in hybrid engine (PHEV), opening the prospects for the emergence of quiet, all-electric cars.
The range of diesel engines includes four-cylinder and six-cylinder powerful P300 P400 with distinctive and effective technology for mild hybrids. Alternatively, customers can choose between four-cylinder diesel engine and powerful four-cylinder D200 D240 – both will provide fuel consumption to 7.6 l/100 km and CO2 emissions at 199 g/km (NEDC equivalent).
Innovative engineering solutions ensure efficiency of management. For example, a flat bottom optimizes the aerodynamic performance of the entire line and protects the bottom of the car from damage.
Technologies of the XXI century
A new Defender is reliable and has many advanced technologies. For the first time the car has a new infotainment system PIVI Pro from Land Rover. New generation touch screens more intuitive and easy to use and require less input to perform most frequently used tasks, and the optimized design ensures immediate response.
