Review

The Land Rover Defender is a rugged SUV that fuses fantastic off-road ability with accomplished 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 if even better in the rough stuff, while premium SUVs, including the Audi Q5 and Q7, are more comfortable.

X-Dynamic adds dark coloured 20in alloy wheels, satin finish grey detailing, black recovery hoops and a unique seat fabric to whatever trim you add it too.

Although we’re yet to sample this mid-range six-cylinder diesel, the less powerful four-cylinder D240 that it replaces was smooth and had more than ample power. Hopefully the new engine will prove even more impressive.
