Earlier this year, Land Rover had announced that it will launch the new Defender in India on October 15, 2020. Now, the company has announced that the first batch of Defender SUVs has arrived at JNPT, near Mumbai.

Land Rover had started accepting bookings for the SUV in February this year. It will be imported as a completely built unit (CBU).

Based on Land Rover’s D7x architecture, the new Defender will be offered in two body styles - Defender 90 (3-door) and Defender 110 (5-door) and in five variants - Base, S, SE, HSE and First Edition.

It will get multiple seating options, and can be personalised with more than 170 accessories, lifestyle packs including Explorer Pack, the Adventure Pack, the Country Pack, and the Urban Pack. The list of features on offer include a 360-degree camera, wade sensing, electronic air suspension, smartphone pack, Connected Navigation Pro, off-road tyres and centre console with optional refrigerated compartment among others.

To power the Defender, Land Rover has used a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine that produces 296 BHP and 400 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and the Terrain Response 2 all-wheel drive system.
