With pre-bookings currently available for customers, Euro Motors Jaguar Land Rover is set to formally introduce the next generation Defender in spring 2020. Offering a suite of the latest driver assistance and connectivity features, the ultimate SUV is truly revolutionary.
The new Defender is as technologically advanced as it is durable. It introduces Land Rover’s new Pivi Pro infotainment system. The next-generation touchscreen is intuitive and user-friendly, requiring few inputs to perform frequently used tasks, while its always-on design guarantees almost instant responses. Users can easily customize the layout of the system while also adding more information and features.
In addition, the 2020 Defender takes Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) technology to a new level, with 14 individual modules capable of receiving remote updates. By downloading data while customers are asleep at home or in far-flung locations, the new Defender will get better with age: as electronic updates cascade down to the vehicle immediately, without delay and with no need to visit a showroom.
Speaking about the SUV, the General Manager of Euro Motors Jaguar Land Rover, Mr. Stephen Lay, said: “The Defender is the epitome of rugged, back to basics off-roading, and the 4x4 has always been built with that one purpose in mind. But the upcoming version is set to offer a lot more. The highly anticipated new Defender will add luxury and, in particular, a lot of technology to bring the iconic SUV well and truly into the 21st Century. Pre-booking for the vehicle is open for our customers in Bahrain. We encourage all to visit our showroom to get more information on the various Defender models and specifications available and book their 4x4 at the earliest.”
Configurable Terrain Response debuts on the 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.
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.
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 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.
