The 1970 land rover defender is a classic that’s been around for decades and it’s still a good car. It’s a great off-roader that can also handle anything you put it through and is very comfortable to drive.
Is Defender a bullet proof car?
The latest incarnation of the Defender is a two- and four-door off-roader that’s been engineered to combine modern technology and amenities with that signature style that so many people love about the originals. It offers all-wheel drive and a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an option for a more powerful inline-six or V-8.
A new short wheelbase model has been introduced to the Defender line, and it’s a beauty to behold. The Defender 130 is a true tribute to the utilitarian namesake and it’s the largest and most spacious model in the range.
Its three-door body sits atop an extra-long wheelbase chassis that’s been stretched to 127”, with a load capacity of 1.4 tonnes. The extra space was created by cutting out a section of the chassis and welding it back in, with the result being an extra 17” of length to the wheelbase.
To further increase the cargo carrying capacity, the rear seats slide and fold forwards. The third row of seating benefits from a small stadium rise to provide more visibility for passengers. It’s an easy job for kids to get in and out of the back seat, while a panoramic sunroof is standard on all models. The interior features JLR’s new Pivi Pro infotainment system with a 10-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
