The 2020 Land Rover Defender 110 has been unveiled and is set to arrive in Australia in June 2020 alongside a huge range of exciting features.
According to Gerry McGovern, Land Rover’s Chief Design Officer, the successor to the original Land Rover Defender is “respectful of its past but not harnessed by it… its unique personality is accentuated by its distinctive silhouette and optimum proportions.” If that doesn’t excite you, then I don’t know what will.
The entry-level model will come with a price tag of $69,990 before any on-road costs, but if you want a top-level model, it’ll cost you over $135,000.
The 110 will be followed by the slightly smaller, 3-door 90, which is expected to arrive on Australian shores in late 2020.
You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to the 110’s additional features. Six models are on offer: Defender 110, Defender 110 S, Defender 110 SE, Defender 110 HSE, Defender 110 X and Defender 110 First Edition.
The base model Defender will feature a 2.0L four-cylinder turbodiesel D200 engine capable of 147kW and 430Nm. This means it’ll go from 0-100 km/h in exactly 10.3 seconds – impressive, to say the least.
You can also upgrade to the 177kW 430Nm D240 engine for an additional $5,910 before on-road costs.
The Defender S will have the options of the D240 engine ($83,800 before on-roads) and the 294kW 550 Nm P400 inline-six petrol engine ($95,700 before on-roads). The Defender SE will come with the same engines – D240 will cost you $91,300 and P400 will cost $103,100 (both before on-roads).
The Defender 110 HSE only has one engine option – the P400. This will cost you $112,900 before on-road costs.
Next is the First Edition, which only comes with the D240 engine and is priced at $102,500 before on-roads.
And finally, the Defender X will come with the inline-six P400 petrol engine and will cost you a hefty $137,100 before on-road costs.
All models will come with adaptive dynamics, electronic air suspension and Land Rover’s Terrain Response system. The First Edition and X models will have the more advanced Terrain response 2 system installed.
What’s the interior like, you ask? In the 110, you’ll find a black fabric interior, 8-way heated power-adjustable front seats, push-to-start, dual-zone climate control, a 10” Pivi Pro touchscreen and a 180W 6 speaker sound system. You’ll also have access to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and – for those who like to be aware of their surroundings at all times – a 3D surround camera and 360-degree parking aid.
For those looking to customise their Defender, you’ll have the choice of 4 different accessory packs – the Explorer pack, the Adventure pack, the Country pack and the Urban pack – and a 5, 6 or 7 seating layout. And if that’s not enough, the Land Rover Australia website provides the option to choose your own personal customisations to suit your lifestyle.
