    I hope I am not right about this. The design of the new Defender reminds me of the new Bronco.

    as always people dislike change, this new defender looks brilliant, will be much much more comfortable, only issue is reliability

    One could accomplish the same goal by fitting a Kia Soul with air suspension, throwing in a ton of pointless tech that will only fail and cost the owner thousands in repairs and weeks of time, and polishing the exterior to appeal to clueless people who only buy it as a status symbol or to somehow prove that they’re “outdoorsy”. Congratulations Land Rover, you’ve done it again. Another crossover with horrible depreciation that will live a life in the suburbs. This is a slap in the face to any credible 4x4.

    its like they listened to what everybody likes about the old defender and made the opposite.

    All that tech is absolutely amazing on paper but when it goes wrong which it will the invoice at the end will be... Well your bank account will be consumed, I've been driving a landrover for a fair while in Australia and here at least the parts are priced like antiques. Im sure it will be a lovely car, I do like it but I just can't imagine the issue's coming from all those computers. But hey might suprise us.

    I prefer the old defender.
    The new one it looks pretty cheap, We men like the rough and square look like the g class or the Wrangler.

    I had the choice of the previous Defenders and chose the 300 tdi. Reason - no electronics. When a part of my 300 tdi chassis needs welding it’s a fairly simple task. If I break a mirror it is just a few quid to replace. Yes this new Defender looks amazing but I doubt many will ever be used off road in the way I have used my Defender. I am very keen to see how it deals with the rough stuff. Further more how much is it going to cost to repair? Deep pockets I would think.
    My Defender is 22 years old and works the same way it did when new. Yes I have had to spend a few quid each year to keep it running. I wonder how many of the new Defenders will still be financially viable to keep going after 22 years?
    Yes the modern information systems seem amazing and it is definitely more comfortable. `I am sure it will appeal to many.
    Would I buy one? Well that depends on how it performs when it’s price drops to about £10,000 - how old will it be then I wonder?

    45k? Made in Slovakia? 85 ECU's? In only three years, they managed to forget the purpose of the Defender: simple, reliable, agricultural, tough. Why did they not do it electric? It would make sense.

    Is it just me or are Land rovers getting uglier. It looks more like something a housewife from Surry would drive their kids to school in rather than a true offroader.

    To be honest. The 4+4 pickups on the market cater for every farmers need now. Stick a tractor weight in the back and it will pull you through the mud. At £40,000 for a defender I can’t see many getting dirty. 😂😂😂😂

    Looks like it's succumbed to the throw away tendencies of this day and age. You won't see these on the road in 20-30 years. I suppose it's understandable from a business perspective but it's quite sad at the same time.

    I love it. The old Defender was much loved by I as much as anyone else, but it was outdated and simply didn't meet enough safety standards in enough countries to make its continued sale viable. I am now seriously considering getting this new Defender. I'm very pleased it is made in Slovakia and not in England as this will ensure it won't be broken like the rest of the UK, but more importantly the import tax on this vehicle will consequently likely be cheaper on entry into Japan following the trade deal between the EU and Japan which came into force this year. Something the UK will not have with Japan for at least a decade (It took almost this much time for EU/Japan trade deal negotiations). Yep! Broken Britain.

    All very well filling it with clever tech but a Toyota it aint. All the electronics will go wrong and make you wish you hadn’t. Discoveries all have issues so will these. If intend to do proper old defender stuff get a five year old land cruiser for half this.

    .........It looks good and all, but is it *realy* a defender?
    Defenders are made to go of road and not care if you scratch the paint.
    It's supposed to be a solid piece of metal screwed to another solid piece of metal.
    Rugid. just..........too much luxery and plastic.
    You don't buy a defender for its "infoteanment system"
    You buy it to go ofroad.
    If i buy this, i would be constantly scared to ruin it.
    This would have been a better range rover than a defender.

    It looks like the FJ Cruiser and the Honda Element had a baby…but it is growing on me…and I might end up getting one…the white steel wheels is a nice touch. And I like that they actually made it off-roading capable…and that they actually made it somewhat affordable.

    I am a life long super fan. Ive had pretty much every landrover there is. I love the look of the new 110 but 80odd ECU's makes me nervous. I admit the newer landrovers drive much better than the old ones but from experience they are not very reliable, extreamly expensive to fix and are so far removed from the original ethos of being field repairable that I have to confess I stick to the older ones for piece of mind. If only I could have the smoother more refined drive coupled to the old school simple, reliable and field repairable landrovers of old, I would be a happy chappy.

    What do I think? I think it's sad that as soon as you hit your stride and produced a solid season of GT, you cancelled it. Because reviewing this vehicle would have made a great segment.
    That said, meh. Looks like an expensive dolled up FJ with a bunch of sensor driven junk that will stop functioning after the first salted winter road, or muddy stream. Aka a "Garage Queen", or "urban attack vehicle".
    Makes me think of how hard I laughed at an H3 the other day...

    I have long waited for this car, I even had to invest some money into the stock market to raise more money. Price of the *Land Rover Defender* It’s about $50k. I got that money after investing in the stock market for 2 months. So now I guess I’m owning one soon

      Billy Rowland If he has a IFMRRC certificate that’s means he is certified and legit. You can’t just get that certificate from thin air. So I’m surely giving him a try I can’t miss this opportunity because it might not be seen again

      Billy Rowland Just like you I had fears when I was told to reach out to him for help. But when he showed me his approved certificate from the International Financial Market Relations Regulation Center (IFMRRC) I knew I had to give him a try. And to my surprise I got my pay at the due date.
      So you can reach him for more info
