    My car

    Overall, I give this model the best rating because the point of owning this model is off-road driving - and it has the best performance off road. And it's a pleasure driving it.

    It's the best car in the world!

    My car

    You can get more safety features on your Defender - I have traction control, airbag and ABS on mine - you just have to be very nice to the dealer!

    You don't buy a Defender to drive down motorways, you buy it because it has character. When you sit in the driver's seat you feel empowered. You sit above everyone else in their cars. The TD5 engine is so powerful - it turns you into a boy racer at the lights, revving the engine shakes the bonnet - enough to make any real boy racer think twice!

    Snow and floods are no longer a consequence, instead they add to the fun you have when driving. The Defender was designed to be a work horse and it is just that. You tell it where to go and it does just that. Other equipment like CD players can be bought separately if you want, but me - I prefer to listen to the roar of the engine.

    P.S - it's a real babe magnet!
