Defender Special Edition

Land Rover has released an upgraded Defender. What’s different? Well if you’re looking for more varied colours, branded leather seats and extra loading steps at the rear then this may well be the choice for you.

To refresh your memory this fine bit of engineering is powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine, with six-speed manual transmission. The Defender boasts 360Nm of torque for effortless towing and excellent driver refinement whether on or off-road.

The Defender Special Edition now has the colour options of Orkney Grey or Nara Bronze. The wheel arches, bumper, sills and front lights are coloured in Santorini Black.

A more practical addition is a rear step integrated into the back bumper that will help with entering and loading. Gloss black Land Rover lettering is added to the bonnet with a body coloured grille. Saw Tooth 16-inch alloy wheels and MTR off-road tyres finish of the exterior refit.

Looking inside the cabin we can enjoy varied ebony and almond leather with contrasting stitching. This gives an improved luxurious look to this already solid workhorse. Also upgraded to the standard versions is air-con, heated seats and windscreen, anti-lock brakes, traction control, and remote central locking.

Land Rover have really pushed the boundaries on this release. The added features will make all the difference in comfort and accessibility to someone who needs just that little extra from an already reliable workhorse.
