The 2020 Land Rover Defender has been previewed to Irish motoring media at a reveal event hosted in Jaguar Land Rover HQ in Sandyford, Dublin.

Eddie Kavanagh, Managing Director at Jaguar Land Rover Ireland, said:

“The new Land Rover Defender has been much anticipated and the reaction to the new model has been fantastic. This is the most durable and capable Land Rover ever produced, the most tested vehicle ever and a vehicle with huge appeal. We expect strong interest from the Irish market when the vehicle arrives later this spring.”

Land Rover has defined all-terrain capability and toughness from the conception of its very first 4x4. The Series and Defender models before it, have gone above and beyond for decades, securing iconic status for their ability to help people make more of their world. The new Defender takes these much-loved characteristics and reimagines them for the 21st century.

The result is a visually compelling vehicle that couldn’t be anything else but a modern Defender for a world that has changed massively since the original was created.

With its distinctive silhouette and optimum proportions, the new Defender has toughness at its core while its interior’s rugged modular architecture embraces the spirit of adventure that has been a fundamental part of Land Rover DNA for more than 70 years.

The new Defender is available in 90 (short wheelbase) and 110 (long wheelbase) body designs, with six models available: Defender, S, SE, HSE, Defender X and First Edition, with practical commercial models set to join the line-up later in the year. Irish prices start from €68,160 for the Defender 110 2.0 SD4 AWD Auto model.
