Why Lease A Land Rover Defender?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
Because of the upright, boxy styling of the Defender, you get loads of head- and legroom. As a result, 3 adults will have no space issues in the back of the 110. It’s not quite as spacious for the legs in the back of the shorter 90, but it’s not bad.
You can also add a 3rd row of seats to the 110 to accommodate up to 7, although legroom is limited compared to some 7-seat rivals, such as the BMW X7.
The boot, at 297 litres in the 90, isn’t very big for a car of this type. It’s better in the 110, unless you use the rear-most seats. You can fold the rear seats down should you need to carry larger items. The boot is accessed through a side-opening door, which can prove to be problematic in certain situations if you park too close to an object located behind the Defender.
There are loads of storage spaces around the cabin, with big door pockets and a massive cubby hole between the front seats.
If you want the best fuel economy then look at the plug-in hybrid model. Keep the battery charged and do mostly journeys of around 30 miles or less, and you’ll keep fuel bills to a minimum.
All three diesel engines promise a fuel economy of up to 32.8mpg. The most frugal petrol engine is the P400, which has more power than the P300, but its mild-hybrid technology promises up to 25.7mpg. Predictably, the V8 model will drain the fuel tank very quickly.
Land Rover Defender 90The 3-door Defender sits at 4.5 metres long. It’s more agile than the 110, both on- and off-road, but sacrifices practicality.
Land Rover Defender 110The 110 is considerably longer, at more than 5 metres, and is the best choice if you want to use the rear seats regularly or need a decent boot space. It also comes with the option of 7 seats.
High Performance ModelsThe Defender V8 models come with the most powerful engine. The 5.0-litre V8 has 525hp, which gives it a 0-62mph time of 5.2 seconds.
The Land Rover Defender Vs Competitors
Land Rover as a brand doesn’t have a great record for reliability and delivers a mixed bag of opinions from consumers. The brand is often praised for it's styling, safety and practicality but can fall short in reliability scores. This new tough-looking 4x4 Defender should be unbreakable, however its too early to tell whether the Defender can show excellent reliability in all conditions.
Reliability concerns aside, the Defender is a tremendously accomplished vehicle that nods towards its heritage while looking forward to the future. It’s more than competent on the road and truly brilliant off it.
When a car has so many modern systems, particularly for off-road performance, it’ll cost more than some less sophisticated rivals. Modern Land Rovers are also considered luxury cars and the leasing deals reflect that.
Which model is best for you depends on your circumstances. However, the 5-door Defender 110 will appeal to a wider audience. The P400e plug-in hybrid model offers a great mix of performance and efficiency.
There’s plenty of space inside both the Defender 90 and 110, and the larger model will seat up to 7. However, the boot space isn’t so great in the 90.
The Defender is a luxury car with a strong history and iconic name, coupled with excellent performance. It has all the ingredients for a very desirable machine, and that’s why so many people are looking for lease deals on one.
