    I like it however i don't think it fills the shoes of the old Defender. Its too fancy. The old Defender was simple and rugged, you could beat the shit out of it and it would keep going. With this thing if you drive through a dust storm it will destroy one of the 5 millions computers and cause the whole car to shut down. So yes its a good vehicle just not really a "replacement" for the old Defender.

    I knew someone who once had a land rover Defender I have even driven a defender - which will be a tough act to follow. but if I had a choice of Land rovers to choose from and could afford it this new Defender it would be at the top of my list, in fact I myself would love to take one on a test drive once it is released in the UK.

    So now how do you pick between Discovery, Defender and Evoque now . Have they just f*ucked up their product range strategy . However I do think if they were to convert this for military use they could easily strip it down to basics as it has a good rugged shell. So this was thought of. But too many models for civilian

    If you drive this in the outback of Australia or in Africa and it breaks down, you cant fix it like the previous defender, 85 CPU's ! No chassis no Ute (pick up) or cab chassis - no wonder the Australian military (as other military and civil bodies have) gone with the G wagon. Waited for this after being disappointed with Disco 5. Now going elsewhere and selling D2/4 and defenders.

    £40,000 for the Basic. What planet are Land Rover on. The basic model should have started at around £25,000 without the bells and whistles. At that price it would fly of the production line.

    Another disappointment from Landrover. This has lost the original defender practical appeal. No changeable panels. No truck version. Too much fancy stuff that no one really needs. Way over priced. No diesel in the US and just as expensive as all the other landrovers and rangerovers. You missed the mark. Tooyota hilux/tacoma and Ford rangers will continue to outsell this 100:1. Sad really.

      They seem to be very "pretty" vehicles. I think the greenhouse needs to be taller and have an interior you can clean with a hose and a rag.

    Another fashion gadget from jlr so people can take there kids to school in Chelsea, it goes against everything the defender ever stood for, it is very nice and very clever but it ain't a defender I would love to see one pounded round a farm for a few years if it lasted that an see what's left of it, probably have to drag the old defender out of the bush to tow the new one back to landrover. Like I said it's nice but defender is ment to be a simple agricultural vehicle this is not stick with the old one I think

    At 3.15 I saw the centre console give way . and the technology involved has finished it for me . I shudder to think what the car will be like in 5 years of hard use , yup, all that twisting and flexing with muddy water, salt water , sand off the beach gets into the electronic system. Mark my words , these cars will be a nightmare second hand , well able to financialy cripple the proud owner .

    Well, at least it appeals to it's fans, since it looks like something Sponge Bob would like to drive :P Kinda like retarded cousin of Kia, or something similar. And no, that was not a compliment to a Kia to make it look/handle good. It's just now there's something even worse out there :D Sponge Bobs around the world, unite and get your "defender" now!

    Oh dear.....from the back it looks like a Vitara. From the front it looks like a hatchet job on the discovery and from the side it looks out of proportion and like it's been slammed up the arse by a Mack rag top???oh god need I say more...I think I'll stick another 10 grand on my defender 90 price tag...coz I can see original defenders zooming up in price as people search for a real taste of what landrovers used to be.....this plastic fakerover is probably fine for the ..must have the latest Chelsea school bus crowd but as a lifelong landrover fan....I'm sorely disappointed.......but to end on a positive note....i do however like the satin green ...

    Looks & sounds cool. I just wonder how many days-a-month it has to be in the mechanics, as it has been with British cars in general, for decades!!! Since this is made in Slovakia it may be much less problematic that if it were made in England !!! After-all, YoGo was built there !!

    I think a lot of people is missing the point (the financial point that is), a rugged, bare bones defender aimed to enthusiasts would not sell as well (nor get as much profit) as a luxury AWD SUV with nice off road capabilities. Besides, I feel people serious about off roading will prefer to buy an used and tested offroader instead of taking their new and expensive SUV to the wild. That being said, I think it is a fantastic vehicule with lots of options and tech (probably a lot of it will fail after 2 or 3 years anyways) and I kinda feel bad I can’t afford one.

      Fraser McArthur because of its restricted supply (at least in the UK) besides I bet is not as profitable per car as the Defender (and I’m not sure, but I guess Suzuki isn’t in financial problems as Land Rover/Jaguar is). I get the point a lot of people make of this not being a TRUE defender, but on the other hand I don’t think it is a bad vehicle, and I kinda see the point of Land Rover.
