here it is the all-new defender possibly the most important car land rover has ever made so how do you tackle the ultimate difficult second album stick to the same old back to basics no frills comfy as a prison cell philosophy of the old defender no very much not this new defender is no agricultural workhorse it’s got high definition screens climate control 4g connectivity 85 ecu’s point is this is a thoroughly modern off-roader i’ve got an all-new body that’s stiff and strong i’ve got independent suspension i’ve got a smooth six cylinder diesel engine it’s quiet it’s comfortable it’s refined and look at this cabin it’s all new and modern and flat screeny and well organized but still nice and simple against the old defender this is much much nicer to drive it couldn’t be any worse if you asked me because i hated the way the old defender drove for example when i sit in it the door doesn’t try and take chunks out of my elbow this finally is a defender you could drive to the supermarket and not require a tetanus jab afterwards and for me that’s a massive improvement
