The new-gen Land Rover Defender is based on the all-new D7X platform and sports a monocoque chassis. As mentioned above, the SUV gets two body styles - 90 (3-door) and 110 (5-door) and both are offered in five variants - Base, S, SE, HSE and First Edition, and it comes to India as a Completely Built Unit (CBU) model. In terms of dimensions, the Defender 110 is 5,018 mm long, 2,105 mm wide, and 1,967 mm tall, and features a wheelbase that measures 3,022 mm.

Under the hood, the new Land Rover Defender comes with a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, BS6 petrol engine that churns out 292 bhp and 400 Nm of peak torque, while it's paired with an automatic transmission.

The pneumatic suspension can reduce the ground clearance by 50 mm to improve the ingress and egress. The SUV has a maximum wading depth of 900 mm.
