Land Rover Defender SUV received a new version codenamed “130”. According to the internal classification of the manufacturer, we have the largest car in the model range Land Rover Defender because previously only versions “90” and “110” were available.

However, if earlier the numerical designation indicated the size of the wheelbase in inches, now the Land Rover Defender 130 is identical in size to the version of the Land Rover Defender 110 (3,022 mm). However, it has a markedly increased body length – plus 340 mm, a total of 5,358 mm. Other changes to the car’s exterior include the new Sedona Red color, an expanded silver decor package, and (unfortunately) the lack of additional side windows on the roof.

The increase in size, as expected, led to an increase in the interior. Land Rover Defender 130 offers a 2 + 3 + 3 configuration, which forms a full-fledged comfortable 8-seater. An important advantage over the car Land Rover Defender 110, which could offer only a 7-seater interior with a configuration of 2 + 3 + 2. At the same time, behind the last row of seats, there was only a small trunk. Instead Land Rover Defender 130 promises at least 389 liters of usable space. And the maximum can reach 2,516 liters (5-seater, folded rear row of seats). Thus, the new version organically complements the already existing Land Rover Defender model line.

Among other changes, we note the extended configuration. For example, the standard equipment of the Land Rover Defender 130 includes air suspension and an interior air purifier. Plus a panoramic glass roof: yes, it is already included! In addition, all versions of the Land Rover Defender 130 immediately receive a top-of-the-line Pivi Pro multimedia system with a large 11.6-inch display.

Land Rover Defender 130 is equipped exclusively with 6-cylinder 3-liter Ingenium engines: diesel D250 and D300, or gasoline P300 and P400. By the way, the numbers indicate the power in “horses”. The novelty is devoid of top V8 versions, but also devoid of the weakest engines: a kind of “golden mean” is offered. Transmission is of course automatic, plus all-wheel drive iAWD with the ability to adjust to different types of off-road.

The car can already be ordered in the UK, and will soon be available for order in other markets. Well, we are waiting for British giants in Ukraine!
