So I’ve read a few things about this so far. My 10p worth.

1)If it wasn’t called a defender, most I think would say it’s just another SUV, Evoque Discovery sport Esk.
2) yes it’s far too techy.
3) Iam not a fan of the styling
4) JLR are there to make money and unfortunately we are in a throw away society.
5) don’t like the back end, looks like a 5year old PlayStation nerd designed it


Lastly

6)it’s fat, and reminds me of an ex.... sorry if you are eating.

Quite interesting guy talking about his experience of the defender. Even got the overland show footage with cruisers lol


He made a couple of interesting points (But only Political ones)... He could never convince me to by a Defender. Old or New...Especially New

Hmmm. Santana made a decent fist of this for a while, before the money boys got involved. And of course there are the Perentie Landies. Maybe come to something interesting...

Saw a review of this on youtube the other day, nice looking in terms of the rear, but they didn't mention a manual trans option.

I realise that modern safety requirements limit car makers to some point, but really looks nothing like the old Defender which just has that classic LR look much more.

Now I feel dirty for not talking LC!
