Local specs and pricing have been announced for the new Land Rover Defender ahead of its Australian launch in June 2020.
Initially, only the four-door Defender 110 model will be available with a choice of three engines across five trim levels.
Land Rover will offer the Defender in standard, S, SE and HSE grades, along with special First Edition and X trims.
Priced from $69,990 plus on-road costs, the D200 uses a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine producing 147kW and 430Nm. Every engine is paired with an eight-speed torque converter automatic transmission with a two-speed transfer case and all-wheel drive.
The base model is also available with the turbo-diesel D240 engine which is tuned to deliver 177kW and 430Nm.
Defender S and SE grades are available with the D240 engine or the P400 inline-six petrol unit that’s good for 294kW and 550Nm.
HSE and X models are exclusively available with the P400 engine, while the First Edition gets the D240.
In terms of standard kit, the entry-level Defender is equipped with air suspension, Terrain Response off-road system, 18-inch wheels, a full-size spare, LED headlights, keyless entry and start, dual-zone climate control, rubber flooring, black fabric trim and a 10.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with digital radio, satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Safety-wise, autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, traffic sign recognition, tyre pressure monitoring, surround-view monitor, cruise control with speed limiter, wade sensing and a driver attention alert are included as standard.
Moving to the Defender S (from $83,800 plus on-roads) adds larger 19-inch alloy wheels, automatic high-beam, a digital instrument cluster, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, as well as front and rear centre armrests.
Stepping up to the SE grade (from $91,300 plus on-roads) brings an electronically-adjustable steering column, the clever ClearSight digital rear-view mirror, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
HSE models (from $112,900 plus on-roads) add 20-inch wheels, power-folding wing mirrors and a Meridian sound system.
The First Edition (from $102,500 plus on-roads) is differentiated by a black contrast roof with a panoramic sunroof, privacy glass, an exterior black pack, 20-inch alloy and heated front seats with memory function.
The range-topping off-road focused Defender X (from $137,100 plus on-roads) scores the Terrain Response 2 system with All Terrain Progress Control, an electronic active differential with torque vectoring, matrix LED headlights, a head-up display and a refrigerated front console. A full list of equipment highlights can be found below.
