Bollywood actor, Arjun Kapoor, has recently added a brand new Land Rover Defender SUV to his garage. The actor was recently spotted driving his latest ride when he was caught on the camera by paparazzi. A quick search on the Vahan Portal revealed that the model purchased by the actor, of the movies Panipat and 2 States fame, is the 2021 Land Rover Defender 110 First Edition. Now Land Rover India offers the new Defender 110 First Edition with two engine options - P300 AWD with a 2.0-litre petrol engine and P400 AWD with a 3.0-litre petrol engine. The models come at an on-road Mumbai price of ₹ 1.13 crore and ₹ 1.21 crore respectively. It's unclear as to which model Arjun Kapoor had purchased.
Now, the new Land Rover Defender is certainly not the first luxury SUV to be added to the actor's garage. Earlier in 2017, Arjun Kapoor also bought the then newly launched Maserati Levante, in the Blu Passione Mica shade, which was priced at a whopping ₹ 1.65 Crore (ex-showroom). Arjun Kapoor also owns an Audi Q5 and the current-gen Honda CR-V.
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. Right now Land Rover India only sells the 110 series models in India. Land Rover has added plenty of elements that pay homage to the original Defender including the Aluminium castings on the windows and the split taillights that now get LED treatment. The SUV retains that muscular boxy silhouette.
