The Land Rover Defender is extremely popular among the SUV community. It has always been portrayed as a rugged-looking, hardcore off-road machine, and the new generation Defender is no different. The only difference is that it is now much more technologically advanced and offers a luxurious cabin. This is one of the main reasons why many celebrities have bought it. Like other Indian celebrities, Kunchako Boban has also bought a Defender 110 version.

The social media post shared on Instagram mentions that he bought a customized Land Rover Defender. The SUV seen in the pictures is all black with a contrasting shade for the roof (It could also be reflection). The exact details of the modifications that the actor opted for are currently not available. The actor has several luxury cars in his garage, such as the Toyota Vellfire, Porsche Cayenne, and Mini Cooper S.
