The new Land Rover Defender 130 has a 2+3+3 seating configuration and is 340mm longer than the Defender 110 while maintaining the same wheelbase.
The Land Rover Defender 130 is a longer version of the Defender introduced by Land Rover. In comparison to the Defender 110, the increased length has allowed for an eight-seat layout as well as more cargo space.
The Land Rover Defender 130 has a length of 5,358mm, which is 340mm longer than the Defender 110’s length of 5,018mm. The wheelbase is the same as the 110’s, at 3,022mm. Aside from the increased length when viewed from the side, there are no visual differences between the 130 and 110.
The Land Rover Defender 130 has an additional length that allows it to seat up to 8 passengers in a 2+3+3 configuration. Furthermore, with all rows raised, there is room for 389 litres of cargo. The Defender 130 can carry a massive 2,291 litres of cargo when the second and third rows are folded down. A panoramic sunroof is standard on all Defender 130 models, but there is also a second sunroof above the third row. A 11.4-inch Pivi Pro touchscreen and standard air suspension are included in the Defender 130. The Defender 130 will be available in HSE and X trim levels from Land Rover.
The increased length has obviously affected the departure angle, which is now 28.5 degrees versus 37.7 degrees on the 110. It has 290mm of ground clearance and 900mm of water wading capability. For the time being, there are only two engine options. The P400 mild-hybrid Ingenium six-cylinder petrol engine produces 400bhp and 550Nm of torque, while the D300 Ingenium six-cylinder diesel engine produces 300bhp and 650 Nm of torque. Standard is an 8-speed torque converter from ZF.
