The Land Rover Defender is a rugged SUV that fuses fantastic off-road ability (especially if you add the optional locking rear differential) with decent on-road manners. If that's the blend of abilities you're after, it's effectively in a class of one, but the Jeep Wrangler is even better in the rough stuff, while premium SUVs, including the Audi Q5 and Q7, are more comfortable. With its bigger boot, the Defender 110 will make the most sense for many, but the 90 is usefully more compact and better off road.

Defender HSE is only slightly more expensive than X-Dynamic SE but adds 14-way electronically adjustable seats with memory function, heating and cooling, adaptive cruise control, panoramic roof and electronic steering wheel adjustment.
