The defender land rover 110 is the most practical of the three new body styles and arguably the best-looking too. It offers a lot of equipment that most other midsize SUVs don’t, including a high-spec infotainment system with Amazon Alexa integration, and an impressively rugged set of off-road credentials.
There’s a huge range of engine options, too, from a base four-cylinder (with weight-saddling options like air suspension) to a mighty supercharged V8 that makes 518 horsepower and is the most powerful of the bunch. The EPA rates the 90 with a four-cylinder at 18 mpg in city and 21 mpg on the highway, while the six-cylinder models get 19 mpg.
Among the more off-road-focused trims is the X, which has an air suspension, an electronic active differential, a standard off-road package and a special appearance package that adds Windsor leather, bright metal pedals, and a unique hood. Its price is a little higher than the other four-door models, but it does offer some more interesting design elements and interior materials.

Another variant, the 130, debuts in 2023, adding a full third row of seats to the line. Its departure angle isn’t quite as good as that of the 110, but it has adult-friendly legroom and three seatbelts across, and the boxy shape of the car helps keep things feeling less claustrophobic than in some other eight-passenger luxury SUVs.
Prices begin at $53,400 for the Standard trim. Up to a top-of-the-line V8 model, you can expect to pay well over $80,000.
