FIRST LOOK: New Land Rover Defender | Top Gear

  • Published on Sep 10, 2019
  • This new Land Rover Defender has to walk a difficult line: It must be an object of desire to the prosperous public - but it also needs genuine utility so the farmers-to-peacekeepers market will show a renewed interest. Can it? Well, let Top Gear Magazine’s Jack Rix walk you around both the new 90 and 110 Defender, then it’s up to you to decide. Subscribe to Top Gear for more videos:

    Everyone’s got their own original Land Rover Defender story. What’s yours?

      My story is that I watched another review on the new Defender and once again they didn’t criticise anything about the shit vehicle, instead all they did was suck Landrover C@ck.

      @Brandon Alder No, the british taxpayer covers all the losses.

      @Joshua Collins Didn't miss much. In Australia unless it's a Toyota (reliability) we don't bother. The risk of breakdown in an remote area eliminates all other manufacturers

      @N R The BBC don't care, you're probably just a white straight male anyway.

      @Ricky Clarkson Because they're not pollitically correct and the BBC cares more about virtue signalling their progressiveness than what the viewers think or earning a profit as the British taxpayer can fund their disasters.

    Sorry. The only redeeming quality of this thing is the steel wheels. My Discovery is closer to a Defender than this thing will ever be.

    They can call it whatever they want, but that is just not a Defender, and it will never be a Defender..... :-/

    I love the two door Defender. Beautiful vehicle. Reminds me of the old Ford Bronco.

    the review feels more like a paid promotion, nothing can beat the good old Defender. not even the new one

    They'll lap it up in Newport Beach, CA just like they do with the Porsche Panamera. A sellout by any measure. But, we all know it looks like crap. Let's be honest.

    those 3 torx screws on each doors have to be extra tough because out of every reviews I've seen that's about the only thing they all point at saying look this car is rugged.

    Is this an impartial review or a sales spiel.
    I won’t watch you again.

    I just had to rewatch the Hammonds version. How can you look at defender by being afraid to step in mud...

  • Garth Richert

    You are right, its a car. Not a utility vehicle. Farmers wont waste their money on it. My ex military Wolf, has its eyes open. Your new car has its eyes half shut. Even as a car it is too expensive for normal people. and wallah, when the wealthy buyers are finished with the car, normal people, ( the second hand market) wont want it because it is so inundated with ECU's and over complicated gadgetry. Land Rover is currently the glittering star at the top of the christmas tree, but its about to wither, because its been cutting off its own roots.

    It looks like an old Russian military vehicle they have went back the way should have just updated the old 110

    I don't think they argued over the design as much as just gave up. Not interesting.

    Center front seat is somewhat reminiscent of a series 1 without the floor sticks . But the winch that can wind you up a tree is a nice touch . You never know when you need to get away from the crocodiles ?

  • Eye Of Horus Wadjet

    $500 US for heated front seats + $500 US for heated rear seats + $700 US for heated steering wheel (cold wx package)... man JLR must think their customers are chumps.

    A least this muppet accepts that this is an SUV and not a Defender. A shame that he has no idea what enthusiasts love about the old Land Rovers.

    JLR have completely missed the point with this creation. Its nothing more than a hair dressers car . Where does the dead sheep go ? where does the muddy dribbling farmers sheep dog sit ? and what of the grubby site workers with the muddy boots, the greasy overalls . and what about all that technology when the car becomes 10 years old ? hmm ? Its a range rover/discovery/freelander , Kids schoolrun taxi , but its NOT a landrover. series 1 , 2 , 2a , 3 or defender

    Does it have front and rear diff lock? No, oh it's a soccer mom car. Can I get it without leather interior or a billion electronic bits? No, I hope they do well when they're wet and covered in mud.
