New and Used Land Rover Defender for Sale Philippines
The Land Rover Defender is a four-wheel drive off-road vehicle based on the original Land Rover Series from 1948. When it first came out in 1983, the Land Rover Defender was initially known as the Land Rover 110. The number represents the length of the wheelbase in inches. A year later, the Land Rover 90 was also introduced. In 1989, Jaguar Land Rover introduced a third model in parallel with the previous two, called the Land Rover Discovery. To avoid confusion, both the 90 and the 110 were rebadged as the Defender 90 and Defender 110 in 1991.
In October 2013, the British automaker announced that they will discontinue the Defender in December 2015 after 67 years of continuous production, but was eventually extended to January 29, 2016 to accommodate remaining orders. 2016 is the final production year for the Land Rover Defender Philippines. According to Jaguar Land Rover, the last Defender rolled out of the production line on January 29, 2016 at 9:22 A.M. The British car manufacturer said that they intend to “redesign” the Defender in the near future, which many car reviewers speculate will be quite a departure from the original design.

Land Rover Defender Specs and Performance
The 2016 Land Rover Defender is powered by a 2.2-liter four –cylinder diesel engine that produces 120 hp and 360 Nm peak torque. Despite the small size compared to what SUVs today are equipped with, the Land Rover Defender engine is impressive enough to provide the needed muscle for tough off-road environments. Acceleration from 0-100 kph can be achieved in 14.7 seconds.
The Land Rover Defender suspension system features a live beam axle, linear rate coil springs, coaxial telescopic system at the front and a live beam axle, dual rate coil springs, telescopic system at the rear. The shift from leaf spring to coil spring is an integral reason for the Defender’s continued off-road success.

Land Rover Defender Features
Land Rover Defender Convenience and Entertainment Features
For what the Land Rover Defender lacks in comfort, safety and on-road performance, there’s absolutely nothing that can compare to the car’s off-road proficiencies. High ground clearance, solid chassis, four-wheel drive and low range gearing ensures that the Defender can handle any off-road condition you throw at it. And though Spartan-esque, the Defender is not without its share of convenience features, which include:
- CD, radio and MP3/AUX system
- Heated front seats and windscreen
- Leather premium seats
- Manual dipping interior mirror
- Driver and passenger sunvisor
- Passenger map pocket
Land Rover Defender Safety Features
The Land Rover Defender’s safety features are so basic to the point that airbags aren’t even available as an option. In fact, in their brochure, the only listed safety feature is a perimetric alarm with engine immobilization capabilities. That said, Land Rover did add traction and electronic stability control to the standard Land Rover Defender kit in recent years, which should at least help drivers avoid head-on collisions to some degree.

Land Rover Defender Interior
Step inside a Defender and you’ll instantly be transported to the past via its agricultural interior. It’s stripped to the bones, uncomfortable and noisy— which is exactly what a retro vehicle should be. Unfortunately, this also means drivers will be operating in a very tight and cramped space. Some car reviewers found that they kept hitting their elbow against the driver’s door when making turns. Thankfully the space gets better at the back. With plenty of room at the rear, it’s obvious that the Defender is meant to carry a wide range of stuff.
- Metallic four-wheel drive plaque
- Multiple seating choices
- Contrast leather premium seats
- Leather steering wheel
- Carpet floor trim
- Rear load space net
Land Rover Defender Exterior
Unlike many off-roaders today, the Land Rover Defender eschews curves and sleekness in favor of a retro boxy shape. A rigid silhouette and wide panel gaps add to its throwback allure. The two-door 90 model is certainly less practical to use in the Philippines than the four-door Land Rover Defender 110, but there’s no denying that the former is the better looking of the two.
As a car from different era, the look of the Defender shocks and delights in equal measure. The exposed door hinges, riveted bodywork and panel gaps serve to remind onlookers that this 67-year old vehicle was built by hand and not machines.
- Body-colored roof
- Body-colored wheel arches
- Two fixed sidesteps
- Folding rear step
- Brunel grille
- Brunel headlamp surrounds
Land Rover Defender Color Options
Buyers of the Land Rover 4x4 get to choose from eight exquisite color options. Here are six of them:
- Fuji White
- Yulong White
- Indus Silver
- Corris Grey
- Scotia Grey
- Keswick Green
