The Land Rover Defender has won over 30 international awards since it launched last year, and now it has added two more globally-recognised awards, being named overall Car of the Year, while also securing the Unstoppable Force Award in this year’s coveted TopGear.com Awards.

Judges of the prestigious award praised the new Defender for being one of the toughest vehicles on the road today, and a brilliant successor to the original iconic Land Rover, as a car for the 21st century that performs brilliantly everywhere.

THE BEST OF THE BEST

Jack Rix, Editor, Top Gear Magazine said: “Car of the Year is an accolade won by only the very best of the best. We recognise that replacing an icon is an unenviable task, and one Land Rover rightly took its time to get right."

He added,

“It's the toughest, most capable off-roader we've ever tested, but one that's a refined, well-equipped family car around town. Congratulations to everyone at Land Rover.”

PROUD OF THE RECOGNITION

Nick Rogers, Executive Director, Product Engineering, Jaguar Land Rover said:
“It's an absolute honour for us to receive Top Gear's Car of the Year award for our new Defender. Right from the start of creating this vehicle with the blank sheet of paper, we were obsessed about respecting its heritage and keeping its true authenticity, as well as ensuring it is completely fitting for today’s ever-evolving world. We have worked tirelessly to deliver a vehicle that has incredible off-road capability, as well as on-road poise and driveability. Additionally, we have ensured that the new Defender is completely connected, with our new Electrical Vehicle Architecture (EVA2), Pivi Pro infotainment system and Software Over the Air (SOTA) updates to continually enhance the Defender operating system. We are especially proud of this recognition from Top Gear, which is a testament to the dedication of our JLR Family who have created a vehicle that we believe is truly worthy of the Defender name.”

EXCEPTIONALLY TOUGH

To celebrate the Defender’s latest achievement in taking out the Unstoppable Force title, Land Rover teamed up with Top Gear magazine to put the Defender to the ultimate test of strength, by suspending three Defender 110’s from a 60-meter crane, solely by their towing eyes. The test subjected the top Defender to over 8 tonnes through the structure, and the Defender passed the test with flying colours.

Important note on imagery & specification. We are living through exceptional times. Due to the Covid pandemic we have been prevented or delayed in the creation of new images of current model years. Now the global impact of micro-chip shortages is further affecting build specifications, options and launch timings. Until this unique event settles, please note that many images cannot be updated to 22 model year specifications. Features, options, trim and colour schemes will differ from many images. Customers are urged to consult your local Retailer for detailed 22 model year specifications and do not base an order on marketing imagery and specification alone.

Jaguar Land Rover Limited is constantly seeking ways to improve the specification, design and production of its vehicles, parts and accessories and alterations take place continually, and we reserve the right to change without notice. Some features may vary between optional and standard for different model years. The information, specification, engines and colours on this website are based on European specification and may vary from market to market and are subject to change without notice.

Some information presented or used in the MRDP calculation is sourced from third parties.
