Land Rover Defender 2020 review | New Defender 110 SUV first drive | Autocar

It’s finally here. The new 2020 Land Rover Defender has arrived, replacing a car that could trace its roots back to the very 1948 birth of Land Rover.

Land Rover doesn’t like to call the Defender an SUV – insisting it is a true 4×4 – but the new car can be had in either short-wheelbase 90 or long-wheelbase 110 form, as tested here.

It comes in a variety of forms. We’ve driven the 2.0 diesel D240, a 237bhp diesel with a 0-60mph time of 8.7seconds and a top speed of 117mph. Then there’s the P400, a V6 petrol engine with a 0-60mph time of 5.8sec and a 119mph top speed.

Prices, in the UK, start at around £45,000, but it’s possible to spec a Defender up to six figures. The cars you see here (driven before the Coronavirus outbreak took hold internationally), were pretty heftily specced, at around £65k for the D240 and £80k+ for the P400.

When it goes on sale, the Land Rover Defender will face competition from all kinds of vehicles, from the Jeep Wrangler to the Ford Ranger Raptor to the Toyota Land Cruiser and more. Here’s what it’s like, driven over vast distances albeit all off-road…

    Please clarify – P400 is a Petrol V6? Others report it is a Turbo charged inline 3 litre 6…….

    I was told that because this new Defender has 85 ECU's(?) should one needed to call for an emergency vehicle to pick it up most will not touch the Defender. Do you know why that is?

    Cool location, well shot, well presented, it's a shame about the exterior design language, which is a combination of feminine aspects and generally daft looking laughspects. Like something out of a 90's 'car of the future' design workshop for a B movie (not a novel analogy, but there we are). Anyway, i hope that they fire the designer that ruined their SUVs and bring back their product range into alignment with the expectations of people whom could buy something else. All the best.

    You have to rather compare the new Defender to the Jeep Cherokee than Wrangler. BTW the 3.0 liter is a straight 6 and not V6….08:36. Providing us with your BS opinion about the Double Cab pickup market does not make it fact. The DEFENDER 130 was still in production until 2016 and Jeep Wrangler GLADIATOR sales in the US are doing well so why not a 130 DC HCPU to absorb nearly 1/5 of the capacity?

    what lovely review, very well sponsored, guess what, still keeping my original 110, fixed,restored.

    I have been working on these vehicles that share this platform for the last four years and I hope the materials the bushings are made from have been upgraded as they are Junk! I love Land Rover but I will not be buying one of these, My money will be going on buying another classic Defender
    This new Defender is just for the trend setters and I cannot see them getting the same love as the old Land Rovers

    Half way through the "review" and he's talking about the infotainment screen and steering-wheel controls.
    Is this a Land Rover or an XBox?

    I will only buy it if its equipped with a land cruiser engine. Good platform and suspension. But not the engine

    Too much government and politics went into the design of the car. There are so many videos because they have to sell and convince, people to accept it. It looks like a Honda. Rounded and boring with no edge to it. Fake plastic parts on it that are not functional strictly decoration. I will have to see one in person. driving down a dirt road any car can do that. … After market parts? There are already enough cars out there for women and the look cool soccer moms and Prius people. Oh and there is absolutely nothing that ties it to the history of the name sake Range Rover/Rover Sport/Defender/Discovery I. II LR3,LR4/ the early Series vehicles, all share something along the way here there is nothing. All of those vehicles shared genetics and a real history of some kind a frame, transfer case, transmission, engine, axles body on frame something anything! Exploration multi continent farming military camel trophy. This is its own vehicle completely disconnected. It should have its own name even with all those actually connections the other vehicles have their own names. This I am sure is a great car but names have meaning behind them. Even naming this vehicle Defender II would have been better. Blaming regulatory commission for its looks all excuses of safety features are just excuses. This is not a defender. You want to pretend it is, go put on some pink camo pants body armor do some push ups and pretend you served in the military, call yourself a Navy Seal or SAS.

    It’s called a transfer box, not a case!

    The ultimate test for the new Defender…
    Questions: Do the African and Middle Eastern paramilitary and other t-word groups use the old or the new one as their beloved transport and combat vehicle in addition to Land Cruiser and Hilux? What about the safari organizers and their support crowd?
    Answer: … silence…. the old because the new one is essentially a toy. And it shouldn't wear the Defender badge.

    From the dash screen, t looks like he is using 2 differential locks. The center and one on the back. Usually Land Rovers are sold standard with only the center. I wonder how capable it would be with just the center lock. Or are all the new defenders sold standard with a back differential lock now.

    rolling over sand and smooth stones isnt exactly a difficult task. can the new defender make it across the rubicon trail? i dont think land rover wants anyone to try that, so we will never know the answer until someone who has alot of money to waste, tries it

    If it comes with an auto-electrician on call 24 hours a day, i'll think about getting one.

    This car has 84 ECU's, under car cameras and air suspension. What could possibly go wrong 🤣🤣
