“And the amazing thing is how well it drives. It’s stately and dignified and feels good.”


“You can sense those Serengeti genes that continue to make the Defender the definitive 4×4. In many ways, this is Land Rover’s greatest achievement.”


“If you’re looking for a seriously capable off-roader that handles the school run just as easily, the Land Rover Defender should be near the top of your list.”


“What a magnificent machine.”
