The new Land Rover Defender is now on sale priced from £22,350. Substantial improvements have been made including the introduction of the EU5 2.2-litre diesel engine, ventilated discs and detail improvements to the three speed-limiting options were also added for fleet users wanting to benefit from effective control of fuel costs.
John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director said “the appeal of the Land Rover Defender has been strengthened with the opportunity for customers to enhance their driving comfort and also to personalise their vehicle with a range of contrast roof colours.
Underpinned by the powerful 2.2-litre diesel engine and its go anywhere capability, the iconic Defender retains the rugged appeal that it’s always been famous for but now with even greater customer choice.”
Customers can now further enhance their Defender’s looks, comfort and versatility with a choice of three more options as well as the choice of two new exterior body colours, Barolo Black and Havana. There are four new contrast roof colours and the option of new premium seat design which increases driving comfort and also the option of an upgraded Alpine sound system.
The Land Rover Defender’s unique vehicle architecture remains unchanged. The chassis frame is available in three different wheelbases and in both standard and heavy-duty guise (for even greater load-bearing capabilities).
