ENHANCED DEFENDER LINE-UP PACKS AN IMPRESSIVE PUNCH
The already iconic Defender range builds upon its desirability with a number of exciting new options. Whether you’re navigating the urban jungle, or tackling the toughest of off-road terrains, the Defender 2024 model year line-up delivers even more choice for explorers with an adventurous heart.
DURABLE DEFENDER 110 HARD TOP
When demountable Hard Tops were introduced in 1950, early Series Land Rovers were given added security and protection from the elements. Now, sharing the same unstoppable character, the New Defender 110 Hard Top will be launched in Australia this year. Designed with a fixed metal roof and silhouette that reflects the original Hard Top, it also features independent coil-sprung suspension for supreme comfort whatever the conditions. The flexible cabin has no second or third-row seats, but the optional front-row jump seat means it will still accommodate up to three people.
The Hard Top is powered by a strong and efficient D250 in-line six-cylinder Ingenium diesel engine, which utilises the advanced Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system to distribute power and torque for optimum performance and efficiency. As you would expect from a Defender, the Hard Top provides outstanding off-road geometry, with ground clearance of 291mm and impressive approach, breakover and departure angles. With a payload and towing capacity of up to 3,500kg, the New Defender Hard Top will be a world-class tow vehicle, with smart technologies to help hitch, drive and reverse safely while pulling a trailer. The Defender 110 Hard Top has been designed to be the most usable and hard-wearing commercial Land Rover ever produced.
UNRIVALLED DEFENDER 110 P400e ELECTRIC HYBRID (PHEV)
Available exclusively with the 110-body design, the new P400e Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) blends performance and economy while also being the most capable and durable electrified Land Rover. Providing unrivalled performance and off-road geometry for a full-sized plug-in hybrid electric 4x4, the P400e can be driven in low range purely in EV mode. On EV power alone, it can be driven for up to 52km.
A 221kW 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ingenium petrol engine and 105kW electric motor delivers a combined 297kW and 640Nm of torque, accelerating the vehicle from 0-100km/h in a breathtaking 5.6 seconds, with a maximum speed of 209km/h. One of the few plug-in hybrid electric vehicles capable of rapid DC charging, the P400e can be charged from 0-80 per cent in as little as 30 minutes away from home using a 50kW charger. The Defender 110 P400e will be available in X-Dynamic SE and X-Dynamic HSE trim levels.
COUNTY EXTERIOR PACK FOR DEFENDER 110
Inspired by the original Defender County, the new County Exterior Pack features unique, modern exterior elements designed to celebrate the 4x4’s legendary heritage. Only available for the Defender 110 in the S specification, head-turning County graphics are found along the doors and body sides, as well as in illuminated treadplates. Striking 20-inch alloy wheels are offered in two finishes. A range of contrast body and roof colour combinations, along with premium interior colour and material combinations, allow owners to tailor the Defender to their personal style.
DEFENDER 130: LUXURY EXPLORATION AND ENHANCED POWERTRAINS
Along with these covetable enhancements across the Defender family, the introduction of the ultimate luxury explorer, the Defender 130 Outbound, offers an unprecedented combination of interior space and all-terrain capability.
And for the first time, the Defender 130 is now available with a 368kW 5.0L supercharged V8 engine, combining the comfort and cruising refinement of an eight-seater with powerful V8 performance. Available exclusively in Carpathian Grey or Santorini Black, it includes quad outboard-mounted exhausts – only available on the V8 – and a range of other tailored exterior finishes. Inside you’ll find all the intuitive off-roading technology Defender is known for, seamlessly integrated into the spacious driver-focused cabin.
