The modelRead full review
The Defender is a rugged SUV that fuses fantastic off-road ability with decent on-road manners. If that's the blend of abilities you're after, it's effectively in a class of one. There is also, handily, a version for everyone, with three bodystyles so you can anything from five to eight seats.
The trimSee full equipment
This off-road biased trim is the only way to get the most powerful D300 diesel, and it's also available with the P400 petrol engine. Over HSE you get 20in dark grey wheels, orange brake calipers, a black bonnet and roof, a surround sound stereo and an active rear differential to improve traction off road. It also adds air suspension to the 90. Despite having some of the quickest engine choices, you could get a far more luxurious SUV for this money.
The engineSee full engine specs
The P400e uses a 2.0-litre petrol engine and an electric motor that, combined, produce 399bhp. That's good enough for 0-62mph in 5.6sec or an electric-only range of up to 27 miles. It's by far the cheapest Defender on company car tax (and the only one not in the top BIK tax band) but it tows the least – up to 3000kg.
