Indian Cricketer Rishabh Pant Buys Land Rover Defender 110 Luxury SUV [Video]

Rishabh Pant's new Defender

Rishabh Pant was in the news last year for a horrific road accident. The young cricketer crashed his Mercedes-Benz GLE 43 AMG SUV while driving home from Delhi. The cricketer has been recovering from his injuries since then and had not participated in any games. It looks like Rishabh Pant has finally recovered, and he is also on the T20 World Cup team this year. Recently, the player was spotted at Mumbai airport in his brand-new SUV. The cricketer had bought a new Land Rover Defender 110 SUV.

The video was shared by Cars For You on their YouTube channel. Just like in older videos on this channel, we see Rishabh Pant standing next to his new Land Rover Defender SUV outside the airport. The cricketer bought the SUV in a white shade. The Defender is a rugged-looking SUV with a lot of history.

It is an iconic SUV that is extremely popular among off-road enthusiasts. The new generation Defender has actually caught buyers’ attention around the world for its looks and features. The Defender is still an extremely capable SUV. However, it is loved because it can do all this without compromising the comfort of the occupants.

It is a feature-loaded SUV that offers a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment screen, a fully digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster, automatic climate control, a head-up display, a wireless phone charger, connected car features, a premium speaker system from Meridian, electrically adjustable front seats, electronic air suspension that can be raised at the touch of a button, a 360-degree camera, heated front seats, blind-spot assist, front and rear parking sensors, six airbags, ABS, traction control, leather upholstery, rubber flooring, and more.

Land Rover offers the Defender SUV in 90, 110, and 130 variants. The 3-door version is known as the Defender 90, the 5-door version is the Defender 110, and there is a three-row version of the SUV which is slightly longer than the regular 5-door variant known as the Defender 130.

The price for a brand-new Land Rover Defender starts at Rs 97 lakh, ex-showroom, and goes up to Rs 2.35 crore. We do not know whether Rishabh went for the petrol or diesel engine option. The Land Rover Defender is available with 2.0-liter and 3.0-liter petrol engines, as well as a 3.0-liter diesel engine.

Last year, the manufacturer also introduced a 5.0-liter V8 petrol engine option for both the Defender 110 and 90 versions. All these engine choices come with an automatic transmission as standard. The vehicle features a permanent 4WD system with a locking center differential and active rear-locking differentials.

Other than Rishabh Pant, Indian cricketer KL Rahul was also spotted in a Defender 110. However, it doesn’t look like the SUV is owned by the cricketer. The black-colored Defender is actually owned by Ahan Shetty, Suniel Shetty’s son.

This makes Rishabh Pant the first Indian cricketer to own this iconic SUV. Other than Rishabh Pant, we have celebrities like Suniel Shetty, Arjun Kapoor, Aayush Sharma, Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt, Amitabh Bachchan, Fahadh Faasil, Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Jimmy Sheirgill, Neha Kakkar, and Mammootty who own this SUV.
