New vs Old Land Rover Defender: Up-Hill DRAG RACE & Off-Road Battle!

Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price – from Mat Watson!

Are you in the market for an all-British off-roader? Then let’s face it, you’re going to choose a Land Rover Defender, aren’t you?

It’s fair to say the all-new Defender has come in for a bit of criticism since it was unveiled. So we want to know whether all the negative comments are justified, or if the all-new edition is a worthy replacement to its predecessor. And what better way to find out then with a series of off-road challenges!

When it comes to power, the new Defender has a clear advantage, with its 2-litre turbocharged Diesel engine pumping out 240hp. That’s far more than the old generation can muster from its 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel, which only produces 122hp. Not only that but as we saw earlier in the year, the new Defender is packed full of all-new tech and electronics to help find the perfect settings for these off-road obstacles.

So what do you think – can the old Defender hang in there throughout this off-road battle?! There’s only one way to find out… Stick with Mat to see what happens!

Thanks to Nene Overland for lending us the Defender –

    My biggest complaint with the new one is how ugly the front is.

    It’s funny when videos of cars that have followings attract all the fanboys to the comment sections. Y’all need to get a grip 😂

    Congrats, Land Rover. With this new Defender, you've completely abandoned any charm in your entire lineup. I'm also sure that time will prove you've added another $100k lemon to you line up.

    No matter how bad you try, the old generation will always be better again, we loved it with that safe

    Changing drivers and using hill descent mode makes it seem fixed… Better to do the tests with the same driver in both cars at least, otherwise what's the point??

    Commissioned to promote the new Defender. Not an honest competition. Plus come on. That’s not an ‘old’ Defender. Just wait till you have to try and fix it! 🤣🤣

    The number of ads interrupting the video was ridiculous. I moved on after 9 minutes… sorry.

    All those electronics make driving "easy", but i thought you Europeans were more robust than the mall drivers in the United States. I'd take the 2014 any day over the new one.

    I wonder whats the idea of setting up an obstacle course that we all know a car is better than the other. Can we please send these two vehicles during a 3-week safari through Australia and see which one makes it. If any of the vehicles brake, it can be fixed with bush mechanics but must reach the checkpoint before reaching out to the local stores for spare parts. These parts cannot be sponsored or brought by LR.

    If Landrover’s have such advanced traction control systems then why do you still have an option to select a mode shouldn’t it just all be automatic?

    TFLCar bought a new Defender over a month ago. Drove it only a few days, and has been in a workshop with continuous troubles ever since. 167 miles before it broke. 3 or 4 days of use. A continual stream of electronic faults since. And Land Rover can't even fix it. Lemon laws now would apply. I can't see this copy even lasting the warranty period. Give me a previous model Defender any day.
