2021 Land Rover Defender Review : 8 Pros & 7 Cons

Land Rover Defender Pros

  • Fabulous styling! Land Rover has perfectly amalgamated history with contemporariness
  • Solid, rugged and indestructible feel. You'll love driving the Defender. It oozes character
  • Interiors portray extreme thoughtfulness in design & offer loads of practicality
  • Wide engine range includes a 2.0P, 3.0P and 3.0D. V8 petrol is on the horizon too
  • Air suspension offers very good ride comfort
  • Comes fully loaded with kit & technology. Rugged, but has all the modern goodies
  • Offroad capability is top class!
  • 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating & equipment

Land Rover Defender Cons

  • 2.0 petrol feels strictly 'adequate'. Get the larger 3.0 motors if you can
  • Workhorse 2.0 diesel (usually the best seller in India) isn't on sale
  • 2.0 Petrol AT's low fuel economy (again, the 2.0 diesel will be missed)
  • Some interior parts don't feel luxurious, keeping the price tag in mind
  • Land Rover's questionable long-term reliability
  • Expensive, especially the higher variants & bigger engines
  • 3rd seat row is too small & tiny to be usable
