At the very start of 2020 we posted a list of cars that we were excited to drive. All the models that were mentioned were/are headed for local introduction during this calendar year. (Our list can be found at these links: Part One and Part Two). Among these is the new-generation Land Rover Defender. Today we have Land Rover Defender SA Pricing for those who may be keen to own the off-roader.
As has been tradition the new Land Rover Defender will be available in two wheelbases versions: the Defender 90 and Defender 110. The numbers refer to the length of the respective wheelbases in inches. Land Rover SA says that local customers have been busy planning and configuring their new Defenders on the company since the online device went live months ago. The first Defender 110 models will be delivered to customers in June with three-door, short-wheelbase models due late in the year.
Tough and connected
The British company (owned by Tata) says the new Defender is the toughest and most capable Land Rover ever made with unstoppable off-road performance. Both body designs will initially be available will be available with a range of engines including a 177 kW turbodiesel badged D240 and a P300 petrol with 221 kW. The range-topping model at launch will be a P400 derivative fitted with a straight-six petrol engine that features mild-hybrid (MHEV) engine technology; it develops 294 kW of power.
The replacement for the iconic 4×4 also boasts 21st century technologies and introduces Land Rover’s Pivi infotainment. This new system features an intuitive interface and its own back-up battery for always-on responses. Software-over-the-air updates ensure that customers benefit from the latest software at all times.
