2015 Land Rover Defender 110 Review

“Lovely Defender”, said a small voice from somewhere behind the tailgate-mounted spare wheel, later revealed as belonging to an admiring Septuagenarian. “My husband had one years ago, though I had to sell it when he died.” Such is the vintage of the Land Rover Defender, essentially unchanged in design for decades, just like its raison d’etre...

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...
