Two peoples standing near Defender


Daniel Gardner and Alex Inwood from Wheels took the 2021 Land Rover Defender for a farm adventure. Gardner returning to his roots, is curious to see whether it will live up to its reputation, whilst Inwood confesses he “doesn’t really get the Defender thing.” Will it match Gardner’s expectations of what a Defender should be? And can he convert Inwood into a true Defender fan?

After testing the car both on and off the road, Gardner struggled to find anything he didn't love about the Defender. Inwood, meanwhile, said the New Defender was in a different universe to the one he drove years ago, finding it polished and refined, and was impressed with all the qualities it offers to effortlessly go off-road. Now a true convert, Inwood was happy to praise the car, saying, “Well done Defender!”
