Sydney, AUSTRALIA, 9 December 2020 – The award-winning New Land Rover Defender 110* has earned another five-star review – this time from the safety experts at ANCAP. Land Rover’s most capable and durable model ever has been awarded the maximum five-star rating in the latest round of test results.
“2020 has been a year of significant change, but we’re pleased to see vehicle brands continue to recognise the importance of 5 star safety despite increasing standards,” said ANCAP Director – Communications & Advocacy, Rhianne Robson.
The new Land Rover Defender also showed strong performance across the four key areas of safety assessment.
“Adult Occupant Protection and Child Occupant Protection scored well, with maximum points recorded for adult occupants in the side impact and oblique pole tests, and for child occupants in the frontal offset and side impact tests,” Mrs. Robson said.
The Defender combines state-of-the-art assisting technologies with an ultra-stiff aluminium-intensive body construction engineered to cope with rugged landscapes. Clever technologies available as standard on 21MY Defender include Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist and Rear Collision Monitor.
Six airbags are designed to protect the driver and passengers, while up to three ISOFIX mounting points are available. New Defender scored 85 per cent for Adult and Child Occupant protection, 79 per cent for Safety Assist and achieved a 71 per cent score for Vulnerable Road Users on its way to a five-star overall rating.
Nick Rogers, Executive Director, Product Engineering, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “From the moment we started creating the New Defender, we were obsessed with functional safety and the protection of both the occupants and other road users. We set out to make a vehicle that is the most capable and durable Land Rover ever made, with safety features that truly enhance the driver’s experience. It’s an incredible honour to receive this recognition from ANCAP who have endorsed our New Defender with their five-star rating.”
ANCAP tested a New Defender 110*, but the tough 4x4 family also includes the compact Defender 90. Following its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2019, Land Rover has experienced unprecedented demand for the new 4x4. This has been matched with critical acclaim – New Defender has already won 28 international awards.
Since its debut, Land Rover has also introduced its fuel efficient range of in-line six-cylinder Ingenium diesel engines with mild hybrid technology.
Land Rover has also introduced the X-Dynamic specification, available on both Defender 90 and 110. It provides a selection of exterior and interior design elements reflecting the 4x4’s immense capability and ensuring it stands out from the crowd.
The comprehensive range of advanced driver assistance technologies fitted as standard on all 21MY Defenders include:
