The Land Rover Defender’s diesel-powered variant shows resemblance in the features, equipment and design elements to its petrol-powered counterparts. These features include the heated and power-operated ORVMs, LED headlamps with LED DRLs, LED taillights, rain-sensing wipers, reverse parking camera and push-button start/stop. It also features a 12.3-inch fully-digital instrument cluster, a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a heads-up display.
The model comes equipped with the brand’s All-Terrain Response System with air suspension, cruise control, traction control, six airbags, hill-hold assist, wade sensors and a driver monitoring system.
The only difference is the diesel engine which comes standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The diesel unit is a 3.0 litre 4-cyinder turbocharged motor churning out 298 bhp and 650 Nm of torque.
The company claims that the Defender 90’s diesel version takes just 6.7s to accelerate from 0 – 100km/h while the Defender 110 diesel variants take 7s to accelerate from 0 – 100km/h. Both the models however have an electronically-limited top speed of 191km/h.
The Land Rover Defender has expanded its customer range in the market with its petrol and diesel engines but will continue to compete against the likes of the Jeep Wrangler and the Mercedes-Benz G 350d in the domestic market.
