New 2020 LAND ROVER DEFENDER! Lives Up to the Hype?

Checking out the brand new Land Rover Defender to find out if it lives up to the hype! With Omaze you can win a new Defender 110 First Edition and $20,000 cash with taxes and shipping included:
To discover it for the first time, I'm at Harwoods Land Rover Edenbridge, who kindly made it possible to take out both their 110 D240 and 110 P300; the diesel and petrol variants respectively. Before getting on the road, they've also produced a fantastic display including a number of older models of different types to check out, before going through from top to bottom through the new car to see all about it.
After decades of retaining the same body style, the new model of the Land Rover Defender has taken a totally different path. The design incorporates numerous cues and elements made famous of the car's history, but takes a totally different approach rather than trying to be an updated version of 'the same thing'. Inside it has the latest tech with digital displays, but based around a structural dash design that gives the rugged impression you expect from such a car.
Initially available as the 5-door 110 version, the 3-door 90 version will follow. For now there are the diesel D200 and D240 engines, with the petrol P300 to be joined in future with a P400 and maybe even a model with a V8.
Thanks to Harwoods Land Rover in Edenbridge for making it possible to drive two of their Defenders:
Thanks for watching, Tim

@Paddy Downey yeah, It doesn't have the appeal at all. No doubt it will sell well as people will always buy this kind of SUV now. When you look at the 90 in this line up, the red one far right, it's just stunning.

It’s just another premium suv in the line of JLR premium suvs. No-one will ever use these off-road, and you’ll certainly never see one on a farm anymore. A spec’ed up version isn’t much less than a RR Sport. It’s a pity really, as it can’t trade on the old defender heritage for long (just like the Mini)

Ah yes the new Defender, the ugliest Land Rover of all time... How does Land Rover suck so much at making the rears of their cars? (I can't believe I'm saying this, but buy a Ford instead. Buy the Ford Bronco it actually looks good and Ford is also a better brand then Land Rover is.)

Really excellent video. I think people are finding it hard to accept this new car as its such an upgrade from the classic Defender. Its obviously a good car but lacks that functional, basic quality. The original one was just such an iconic vehicle. .

Parked opposite one of these in my 55 plate Defender and it oddly refused to turn off on the ignition key. Never done that before. Maybe it was jealous ? lol

Car designers still have not a clue who actually buys the cars. 98% of those user functions won’t be used. Women can’t cope with those, the guys who’ll buy these won’t need them. Just another country bumpkin school run vehicle for the middle class snob who can’t afford Range Rover or Bentley........

Got one after a few Disco 4s; best I can say it is so-so, and not as good as a total package as a D4. mine has already had to go back to LR to have an electrical fault and various squeeks and rattles fixed. I would sum it up as a slightly more rugged but less spacious Discovery 5. A shame after all the hype this is the best they could do - more style (and daft "design cues") than substance, and far to many complex bits of plastic. Beware to check the specs list if you get one - it doesn't come standard with mudflaps, roof rails or even headlamp washers - on an off-roader! The 240 diesel is OK, but I would imagine the 200 diesel would be a bit gutless. I am not getting more than high-20s mpg, barely much better than my M5 on a run. An LR salesman commented to me that they can sell good low mileage Disco 4s as fast as they can get them; might put my name down for one!

The current plague of touchscreens is going a little too far. A Defender is meant to outlive its owner, that is how tough and reliable they are supposed to be. Touchscreens will be dated and unusable like ipods, mp3 players, DAT players and other tech fads of the past that are DEAD.

"All round car" tells you everything you need to know about this car. It is NOT a defender in any way. Defender was by no means an all rounder.... it had one purpose which it did great.... it was horrible to drive on normal roads.... but then again, it was not it's purpose.

Not pretty, probably as unreliable as everything else Land Rover builds and vastly overpriced - go on the LR website and play with the configurator and it is possible to spec one of these to over 100k. Ridiculous for something that looks like a 20 year old Isuzu Trooper. Can you believe that a car with a base price over 40k sounds so tinny when you shut the doors. The only real advance I can see over the old Defender is that you can steer it without sticking your elbow out of the window.

IMHO... i never really like this new Defender. The design strays away from the Utilitarian looks of the "Original" Defender. It looks too much of a Posh and somewhat it gives me the feels that its gonna be used by Some Hip Hop Artists and they would ruin it even further by giving Gold Paints and Spinners or just used it for going to the Mall. It doesnt feel and emits the Aura of a Vehicle that can pretty much go wherever you wanna go even when the Asphalt ends. But id like my mind to be changed tho.....

Increasinlgy a large amount of car reviews focusing on the Flash Mob mentality - people who own the car for 20k miles then move it on/back. Little to no focus on the aspects of long term ownership. Lest we forget that this Chelsea Tractor is from Jag/Landy so will be as reliable as your personal tail pipes after an Xhot Vindaloo and 5 pints of Cobra. After 25'000 miles things will start to break and other things will just fall off when you do 60+. At this point you'll be working with some Dealership bods who got D-D-U before any exams fiasco and don't understand why you're annoyed that a £50k vehicle has rear usb ports full of water that no longer work after you hosed them down.

Thats why the USB have spring loaded flip covers.......moron! FYI JLR are no better or worse than ANY other Premium brand for Reliability....Check JD power surveys for the Truth, NOT urban legend put around by people whom have caned their cars,,,,,not serviced them etc. And then go on YT complaining about dealers. Thats because the Dealers are NOT stupid and tell them to take a Hike!

LR are struggling terribly to sell these already. My local dealership already has FOUR 'demonstrators', which is about as many a s it has delivered to paying customers. This thing is far too stylised and an expensive toy that has only three or four main competitors, all made by jaguar Land Rover. It is going out of fashion before it has even come into fashion.

The real test will be what it looks like after 100,000miles; it's got the Defender badge I would need to be convinced that it has got the Defender durability.

Land Rover had failed with this fake Defender. It is just another soccer mothers SUV. What a waste from Land Rover. This fake Defender will not be able to survive a single day in the outback without a team of engineers from Land Rover to go with it. This fake Defender will not be able to do the work that my real Defender does, everyday. I will keep my real 2010 Land Rover Defender Series 110 instead, thank you very much.
