Land Rover Defender Inspiration

The all new Defender is an inspirational vehicle with no boundaries.

You can put boundaries to your needs and desires, but do not put boundaries on a new Defender.

When the old Defender was discontinued in 2016, the styling had barely changed since the car’s introduction in the early 1980s and even that was reminiscent of the first Land Rovers from 1948.

Switching from a body on frame chassis to a unibody chassis has given the new Land Rover Defender qualities found in urban-focused SUVs like the Range Rover Evoque and Jaguar F-Pace.

This latest Defender steering is light and accurate making it an easier vehicle to live with in our crowded inner cities. Unlike the old Defenders which are incredibly uncomfortable on the pavement due to its simple yet effective off road running system, the current Defenders can serve credibly as a daily driver and still tackle the harsh terrain that gives the legendary Defender its trophy.

The new 2020 Land Rover Defender has finally joined the Range Rover and the Land Rover Discovery in delivering better infotainment, industry necessary safety features and must have passenger comfort.

Other 21st century fittings are the tilt/telescoping steering column, rear power window, driver footrest, cruise control, and steering wheel control.

The classic Land Rover achieved superior off-roading capacity, but on-road ride quality was bouncy. However, for the latest models, a balance has been achieved by using a unibody chassis and the latest technology.

Plus, you get the very latest in off-road technology which is called ‘ClearSight Ground View’ which is a system that uses various cameras and the large interior screen to show you exactly where your front wheels to protect the passengers and the vehicle as well.

Safety features were missing with the old Defender. The global standard required the latest cutting-edge driver-assist features. Auto Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Blind Spot Warning, Driver Attention Detection, and airbags were absent with the classic Defender.

This new Defender is now safer than ever with the vast collection of safety tech made available to help prevent crashes or lessen the impact if it occurs. Auto Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist help prevent crashes while the system of airbags protects occupants in case of a crash.

Lets not forget the outrageous development programme for this new Defender. The vehicle was sent to almost everywhere corner of the globe. Land Rover put the Defender through over 62,000 tests on every terrain you can imagine. In the process, Land Rover Defender prototypes covered a staggering 1.2million kilometres. This was how serious Land Rover engineers and management team were when it comes to the Defender name.

For the Malaysian buyer there are two engine version of the Defender on sale. The first engine option is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that retails for RM798,800.

The second powertrain option is a mild hybrid that combines with a 3.0L turbocharged petrol engine and this retails for RM998,800.
