The New Land Rover Defender 90 is going back to it’s roots with the option of three abreast front seats, just like the original Defender.
JLR hopes the latest addition to the new Defender range will build on the success of the recently launched 110 models, which has apparently exceeded order expectations since going on sale.
The list price for the shorter wheelbase Defender 90 starts at £40,290 – approximately £5,000 cheaper than the bigger 110.
Commercial derivatives are likely to arrive later this year and will cost from £35,000. A plug-in hybrid power train is also rumoured to launch before 2021.
The layout of the three-door, six-seat New Defender 90 means it can accommodate six occupants in the relatively compact body length of a family hatchback. When not in use, the middle front seatback folds to form a front armrest and storage space. The cheapest D200 models, of which there are three, are powered by a 200hp, two-litre diesel and have an all-wheel-drive automatic transmission with a twin-speed transfer box. In base spec, these come with 18in steel wheels, a 10in touchscreen and coil-sprung suspension. More powerful D240 versions get 240hp from the same block, while there’s also a two-litre, 300hp petrol – the P300 – that starts at £43,345.
The top of the range 400hp P400 model will certainly not be a farm-spec vehicle, which will start at an eye-watering £75,475!
