The Land Rover Defender has been given a number of updates, not the least of which is the fitment of a new global engine in the form of the D350 diesel engine that ups output to 257 kW with an additional 50 Nm of torque, culminating in 700 Nm, while a new 110 Sedona Edition now spearheads the lineup, featuring simplified specification levels that streamline the selection process for prospective owners.

Enhanced passenger comfort is central to the latest upgrades, including introducing a new Signature Interior Pack and adding Captain’s Chairs Pack for Defender 130 models. This new seating configuration for the second row introduces two separate luxury seats with dual armrests and plush winged headrests and an aisle for easy access to the third row.

Mark Cameron, Managing Director at Land Rover Defender, says: "Our vision for Defender is to continuously refine an already exceptional vehicle that seamlessly adapts to any environment. The launch of the new Sedona Edition, sophisticated interior enhancements, and our most potent diesel engine to date expand our clients' choices significantly. With the Captain Chairs in the Defender 130, up to seven passengers can experience unmatched comfort during both grand and local adventures."
