This model Land Rover Defender – In the world of large 4WDs or even SUVs the Land Rover is unique.
With the release of the 130 series, the Defender now has a spread of body styles that no one else has. Depending on the model they also have a choice of 4 engines as well.
Starting with the short wheelbase three door Defender 90 that exudes urban chic while having prodigious 4WD capability. This model is really aimed at a couple as the rear seats, while comfortable are difficult to access for anyone other than kids.
Then there is the Defender 110 which is a comfortable 5 seat 5 door wagon, more traditional in configuration and exuding levels of on road dynamics almost unheard of in a true 4WD.
Now there is the Defender 130 that has grown by some 340mm to allow seating for 8 people in a two, three plus three configuration as well as a reasonable luggage area behind.
Many listeners may know that the model designations stand for wheelbase in inches.
