The British manufacturers have decided to bring back the legacy by unveiling the Land Rover Defender 110 in the Frankfurt Motor Show. It represents the 70 years of innovation and honors the history of the company. Defender 110 is the brand new and updated version of its predecessors. But, in the 1990s the historic Defender was discontinued as it fell short of US regulations. Around 2016, it stopped its production around the globe.
The new Defender promises to be the best in its class of adventure tourer and is ready to compete with the rival brands. The company uses a lot of stiff aluminum monocoque, to make it lighter and improves the performance. It comes in two-cylinder options, the P300 and P400. The P300 is the 4-cylinder producing a 295hp and P400 generating 396hp using its 6-cylinders. The P400 sets 0-100kph in under 6seconds. The 8-Speed automatic transmission helps to manage the speeds and works smoothly with both the engines.
The Defender also gets a bundle of feature to make the driver’s ride as comfortable as possible. The features include an emergency breaking system, traffic sign recognition, etc. The Land Rover Defender will come in two wheelbase options. The Defender 110 will launch in spring 2020, and the shorter wheelbase variant (Defender 90) in late 2020.
