A brief history of the Land Rover Defender

Few vehicles shake up a motor show like a new Land Rover. Look at the new Defender which stole the show at Frankfurt. Funnily enough, the original Land Rover did something similar 71 years ago.  The new Land Rover Defender is incredibly important for the brand. It represents a huge redesign for the iconic model, which will be under lots of pressure to sell...

Now, eight years since it unveiled the DC100 concept, Land Rover has finally come through with a new-generation Defender. What do you think? CarAdvice is at the Frankfurt Motor Show, watch Alborz Fallah walk you through the new-gen model...

Land Rover Defender Old v New: Seven decades of Land Rover

Read the article here. Once upon a time when someone said Land Rover, a hardcore, open-topped Jeep lookalike was what came to mind. We've brought together the first example ever registered in New South Wales - and the 138th vehicle built by the iconic British brand - with a couple of newer Land Rovers, including what could be one of the first ever Defender models, and one of the last Defenders, the Heritage Edition...

Land Rover Defender Old v New Comparison: 1983 110 County v 2016 110 Adventure

The Land Rover Defender 110 Adventure represents the end of a legendary line. For fans of the model, it's the end of a significant off-road era. Here, we take a look back with the first coil sprung Defender, the 1983 County.

Land Rover Defender old v new comparison: 1948 Series 1 v 1991 Defender 90 v 2016 Defender 90 Heritage Edition

The story of Land Rover is a tale for the ages. The brand launched way back in 1948 in the shadows of World War Two, and it’s clear that the inspiration was the army-spec Willys jeep. History tells us that the Land Rover – as the original model was known – was only supposed to be built for a few years until parent company Rover had enough cash flow to sort out its luxury car offerings...

2020 Land Rover Defender 110 review

OK, I get that this isn't a real car, but boy it's some piece of engineering. I test-drove the new Defender a few weeks back and it was fun. I kind of prefer my Disco 4 to be honest but I get the appeal of the new Defender, it's very cool. So, rather than sign on the line for a new Defender ,I went ahead and bought a LEGO one...

1997 Land Rover Defender 110 (4x4) Review

You read the jurno reviews, that all tell you how uncomfortable on the road the Defender is. Have they ever driven one 14 hours a day for weeks on end? Long days of highway driving followed by days in a desert, and thousands of kilometers of secondary corrugated roads? When you do, you realise how comfortable it is...

1994 Land Rover Defender Review

Our mate from across the ditch, Tumm Funn, once moaned about spending six months in a leaky boat… Luxury!! Try spending a day riding shotgun in a Defender! Of course, this iconic British paddock bomb has loads of character, I'll give it that. But. This car is surely one big, elaborate pisstake?? I can imagine the meeting at Land Rover HQ...

2013 Land Rover Defender 90 Review

A Defender is a unique, very special vehicle with a brilliant history. Whilst it is unstoppable offroad, it is still pretty good on road, and many pristine examples on the road today would never see the dirt. They can be surprisingly comfortable, and we have travelled at least 7/800 klms a day in ours with absolutely no issues...
