What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It's simply unrivalled in the mud

Against It's unrefined, slow and thirsty

Verdict It's the perfect farmer’s cart

Go for… 110 County Station Wagon

Avoid… Incomplete service history

Land Rover Defender 4x4
  • 1. Because it’s always in demand and there aren't many around, prices remain pretty high
  • 2. It's built to be the best off-roader in the world and everything about it is designed with that aim - and to great effect
  • 3. Check that any Defender has been maintained regularly, and that previous owners have not overdone it off-road
  • 4. The driver's seat is pretty much of the 'if you don't fit, tough' variety
  • 5. Owners report few problems, although cynics will say that's because there's so little to go wrong
