Manama, Bahrain, 9th October 2019: With the New Land Rover Defender’s official launch scheduled for spring 2020, Euro Motors proudly announces that the iconic SUV is now available for pre-booking in Bahrain.
The Defender is available in 3 distinct body designs - 90, 110 and 130. The Defender 90 offers seating for up to six passengers, while the 110 offers the option of five, six or 5+2 seating. Offering the same capabilities and performance as its peers, the Defender 130 provides a seven-passenger seating option.
With the New Defender, customers will be able to personalize their vehicle in more ways than any previous Land Rover with four accessory packs – the Explorer, the Adventure, the Country and the Urban packs.
The New Land Rover Defender is clever, capable and in a category of its own. A distinctive silhouette makes it instantly recognisable, with minimal front and rear overhangs providing excellent approach and departure angles. Land Rover’s designers re-envisioned familiar Defender trademarks for the 21st century, giving the new 4x4 a purposeful upright stance and Alpine light windows in the roof, while retaining the side-hinged rear tailgate and externally-mounted spare wheel that make the original so identifiable.
Commenting on the latest SUV, the General Manager of Euro Motors Jaguar Land Rover, Mr. Stephen Lay, said: “The Defender is a true icon and we are extremely excited to welcome it to our showroom very soon. The release of the SUV is highly anticipated by the automobile industry as a whole, and is being greatly looked forward to by car enthusiasts and ardent Land Rover fans as well, around the world. We are expecting the New Defender to move very fast after its launch in spring 2020, with that in mind we have decided to give our customers the opportunity to book their vehicles well in advance. With the various models, packs and body styles along with the comprehensive range of options and accessories available, our customers will be able to personalize their Defender to make it their ultimate 4x4 companion. We encourage all to not miss out on this opportunity and visit our showroom today to pre-book the New Land Rover Defender.”
Land Rover’s new purpose-engineered D7x (for extreme) architecture is based on a lightweight aluminium monocoque construction to create the stiffest body structure Land Rover has ever produced. It is three times stiffer than traditional body-on-frame designs, providing perfect foundations for the fully independent air or coil sprung suspension and supports the latest electrified powertrains.
The new Defender has been through more than 62,000 tests for engineering sign-off, while the chassis and body architecture have been engineered to withstand Land Rover’s Extreme Event Test procedure – repeated and sustained impacts, above and beyond the normal standard for SUV and passenger cars.
Configurable Terrain Response debuts on new Defender, allowing experienced off-roaders to fine-tune individual vehicle settings to perfectly suit the conditions, while inexperienced drivers can let the system detect the most appropriate vehicle settings for the terrain, using the intelligent Auto function.
The new body architecture provides ground clearance of 291mm and world-class off-road geometry, giving the 110 approach, breakover and departure angles of 38, 28 and 40 degrees (Off Road height) respectively. Its maximum wading depth of 900mm is supported by a new Wade programme in the Terrain Response 2 system, which ensures drivers can ford deep water with complete confidence.
On dry land, Land Rover’s advanced ClearSight Ground View technology helps drivers take full advantage of Defender’s all-conquering capability by showing the area usually hidden by the bonnet, directly ahead of the front wheels, on the central touchscreen.
