However, with prices starting at just over £40,000, is the all-new Defender really the ULTIMATE offroader? Join Mat and find out!

    Hey guys - if you notice a bit of trim missing from the side of the car, that's because Mat drove it into the bank when offroading and lost it in the water!! Sorry Land Rover 😬

      I dont understand many peple critisize defender using all round independet suspension without solid axle and ladder frame.Just lool back hummer h1 and lambo lm002,both of them using independent suspension but have incredible off road capabilty.I trust new defender has good off road capability compare to other branda and previos defender.

    shame it'll only do 24 to the gallon and nothing like that off road! This is a totally outdated product re the environment and it's only just been launched, LR take so long to get anything done, this Defender has been launched way too late and it's very compromised.

    Ohh you drank water while driving on a road we can't see to judge... That proved nothing other than the fact you are a dangerous driver that eats and drinks as you drive.. Illegal here in Canada lol.. Apparently you know nothing about off road driving or why people are complaining about the unibody build of this Defender.. It can't be raised and is limited in articulation so will wheel lift like all crossovers and cars do off road.. Land Rover should have built this Defender to directly compete with Benz G Wagon and Jeep Wrangler.. It is what we hoped for.. This Defender would be damn near perfect had they done that.. Instead they built it to compete with Toyota Rav 4 and Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk lol

    The guys that designed the Offender have NEVER gone offroading or kept a car for a long period of time (or do earn a huge amount of money). It is ridiculously expensive to buy and to repair. Extremely easy to damage those plastic parts (one day testing it and it has already lost a panier), cameras an parking sensors and all the advantage versus the Defender is washed out if you get the coil springs that it is the reasonable option if you are going to make it earn its fuel. Also, try and repair it in Morocco. Try to opperate the screen with dirty hands, How long would it last without any scratch? or clean all the buttons after a day riding a dusty is not as capable as a Defender. If you get a real Defender and spend as much as on the Pretender, you´d get an almost unstoppable offroad. In fact if you fit front and rear diff. locks on the Defender it would go further...not to mention if you get as much power...You said it..very expensive, and "this much makes the difference"...better angles in the real Defender.

    I owned a D90 for 8 years, fully set up for the rocks of Moab, Utah. I would never take this Mommy SUV on any serious off roading. As far as I am concerned this is an abomination to the heritage of the vehicle..I guess they needed more sales for the USA market so had to turn it into another pavement cowboy that can go on a dirt road. The designer of this vehicle and the board that approved it should be forcibly retired...ughgh The reviewer has his head up his ass. The capabilities of this as a stock vehicle vs the original are night and day

    How much did LR pay for this promotional video? You definitely have no understanding for off road vehicles. Stick to cars and crossovers. All these electronics stop working at some point and that’s why people want solid axles, coil springs and diff locks. On heavily loaded tourers leaf springs are still the way to go. You can’t fix the fancy shit on a track in the middle of nowhere. This electronic toy is build to make the LG garages some money.

    Stop telling that its better then a Land Cruiser. Get this new Defender to a proper off-road track in Tasmania or Australia instead of this typical Land Rover test facility. I have been there, every 4x4 can drive this. The difference with a LC is: proven reliabilty plus you do not need all these electronic stuff in the rough, it will break down anyhow.

    All of you idiots reviewing this car have completely missed the point of what a defender was. This is now a poorly made electronical piece of crap. That will spend more time in the dealership whilst several mechanics surround it not knowing what is causing issues just staring at a diagnostic machine for weeks. They should have made some adjustments to the existing defender. Not scrap the best proper motor they have made for a chinese computer minefield.

    Wrangler has better approach angle, Defender has better break-over and departure at its *highest setting*. But we all know who would win a real off-road battle. Fun fact, the original land rover was actually built on a Jeep Willys chassis.
