NEW DEFENDER TOP GEAR ADVENTURE
Setting out from Opuwo in Namibia's extreme north-west corner, Jack started his road test on one of the only tarmac roads in the country and his first impressions were good. The original Defender is not just an icon, but a national treasure, so this new iteration had a tough act to follow. Day one offered a gentle introduction for Jack, with 140km of changeable surfaces, from washed out gravel tracks, to sudden ruts, and corrugated roads - all serious suspension tests, which the Defender dealt with admirably.
THE FIERCEST OFF-ROAD TEST IN NAMIBIA
TECHNOLOGY THAT IS “PURE WITCHCRAFT”
Even smarter is ClearSight Ground View, which takes an image of the road ahead, and feeds it to the display screen to show you the position of your front wheels and what’s going on under the car.
A CAR WITH PHENOMENAL CAPABILITIES
For someone who started out as a sceptic, by the end of this one-of-a-kind experience, Jack was well and truly a convert to the pleasures of off-roading in a car he sees as having absolutely phenomenal capabilities. After three days of relentless abuse, not a single thing had broken or gone wrong, not even a flat tyre. Excited by what it can do and the places it opens up, Jack concluded his glowing review by saying that in the new Defender, “I’ve got the whole world to play in.”
