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:

      I seen defenders used in the military. Always dreamt of buying one, but this new design - totally rubbish.

      One of the very first vehicles I shat myself in, was a Landover Defender. It was a sloppy affair, and aside from the extreme shame I felt, I was worried about the amount of sheer time it was going to take to clean up.
      I needn't have been; all it took was a quick blast from the pressure washer, and it was almost as good as new.
      That's when I knew that the Landy was the one for me.
      Good times.

    Este Defender para mí perdió su identidad lo bonito del defender era la persiana y las luces, en el momento que le cambiaron la línea adoptando la trompa ó parte delantera y la persiana de la DISCOVERY.😭🤣😂😭🤣😂🤣🤣🤣😭

    What a bunch of rubbish, the only good thing about this new def. is that my TD5 110 will be worth a hell of a lot more. Thanks LR. And as for the presenter, please go and get yourself a cup of tea. You are not telling anything new ot usefull. Sorry

    Land Rovers are notorious for repairs that are extremely expensive. Since the ownership of Land Rover is now in the hands of an India and Chinese coop, the vehicle is manufactured in Slovakia, what will the parts and repairs cost you to own such a cool vehicle?

    This man needs a guide dog,the naff white wheels came of a 1970 Lada 4x4! It's just an overpriced discovery ,sad to call it a defender!!not a working vehicle in any shape or form !!

    I was picked up from Belfast in mid eighties in a 110 with benches to go to a Chris de Burgh concert in Dublin. I was in my early teens and have been hooked on them since - unlike the musician.

    Got to say Don't know who this new presenter is, ok may be my bad but.

    This chap, he talks a right load of dribble.
    He says the Old Defender didn't drive that well.
    it is rough and it is tough...Get the word......(Tough)
    It was built as a to do a job not to look pretty!
    Not to look week and feeble with 3/4 plastic.
    This new version has all the markings of the Surrey school run rich people who think they know about off road but have not the first clue.
    The defender was made to Work, to do a job.
    Well this monstrosity is that far from the mark it is on another planet.

    Ok rant over.

    Traditional Defender customers won't buy this car. It might be better than the old one, but it's nowhere near as good. The new 'Defender' may be perfect for taking the kids to school and their mum to yoga class, but it won't take the sheep to market, and you can't throw bails of hay in the back. And if you try to climb every mountain or ford every stream, many of the 85 ECUs will fail and you'll be stuffed. At least you could still winch it up the side of a dam though, so it's not all bad. My overall verdict? Er, Suzuki. About that new Jimny..........

    Cheeky tw@t, calling all us traditionalists "farmer Giles" and beardy people.
    Yes, my 90 is unusual to drive and has ripples in every panel but she has soul and character. If I wanted to have a comfortable journey, wrapped in luxury, I would have bought a Rangey.. You do not understand our passion.

    We love
    The clunks and the clonks
    The knocks and the rattles
    More welding next year
    For that MOT battle
    You ice up within
    Drip oil on your drive
    They are permanently broken
    But you fix them with pride
    No gadgets or gizmos
    No computers to go wrong
    Just good old engineering
    Propelling you along
    You freeze in the winter
    And boil when it's hot
    A luxurious ride?
    A defender is not

    Well there we go, Landrover now make no proper 4x4s just Chelsea tractors. It's going to be useless for the people who want a proper landrover, cant imagine your farmer crashing across a ploughed field, throwing a dead sheep in one of these, and the electricity board will have to look somewhere else for the 120" version with a cherry picker on the back. They have ignored their core clients for the sake of sales. I hope it sells, because if it bombs Landrover/ Jaguar are gone.

    Wow, hes an idiot who knows nothing about defenders. They were the best all round 4x4 ever made. This is a freelander on steroids. Don't get me wrong if I want a motorway driver for trailers it's not to bad but to bat round the farm or off roading then I think land rover have lost a massive niche to the Japanese pickups.
