Land Rover Defender 110 Launched In Malaysia: RM799K-999K
The all-new, reimagined Land Rover Defender is now launched in Malaysia with two powertrain choices.

Regardless of which Ingenium powertrain one opts for, the Defender will come with an 8-speed conventional automatic ZF-sourced gearbox that sends power to all four wheels. The prices stated above are inclusive of the 50% Penjana Sales Tax waiver, but exclude Road Tax, Registration and Insurance costs.
Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia is throwing in a Land Rover Heritage Watch worth RM2,288 on every (while stock lasts) Defender registered in 2021 to commemorate Sime Darby and Land Rover’s 40th Anniversary of partnership.

The new Defender has the most rigid monocoque chassis ever engineered by Land Rover. Its D7x body was constructed using lightweight aluminium and made the withstand some of the toughest conditions, including repeated and sustained impacts while off-roading.
“By incorporating the latest innovations, the Defender is ideal not only for 4×4 adventures but also for daily city driving. The upgrades reflect the times and the changing needs of the current generation of drivers,” he added.
The new Defender has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500kg and a maximum static roof load of 300kg.
