Land Rover Defender: Exploring the wilds of Africa

The Hoarusib River was flowing hard. Although the country has been in drought for going on seven years, some heavy rainfalls in northern Namibia - on the south-west coast of Africa - have turned this ephemeral river into a torrent of water, coloured like chocolate milk as it clawed against the dry river banks...

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.

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...

2021 Land Rover Defender Hard Top revealed

From the UK comes news that Land Rover is to revive its Hard Top moniker – a name that traces its roots back to the 1950s – for use on commercial vehicle variants of the new Defender 90 and Defender 110 4x4 range.

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...
