After the resurrection of the Land Rover Defender, politicians, celebrities and businessmen have a new favourite. Bollywood actor Sunny Deol has become the latest owner of Defender 110, which is the five-door version of the iconic SUV.
Sunny Deol has received the car in white colour and has been spotted with the new vehicle too. Interestingly, the Deol family loves Land Rover Range Rovers and owns several models from different generations.
The new Land Rover Defender 110 seems to be the top-end version of the SUV. It gets a price tag of more than Rs 1 crore.
The Land Rover Defender is a premium lifestyle luxury SUV that is a well-known vehicle for its prowess on off-road terrains while being a proper luxurious vehicle on the inside. The Defender is available in two body styles – a 3-door version (Defender 90) and a 5-door version (Defender 110).
While the 3-door Defender 90 is preferred for its comparatively smaller size and unique three-door look, the 5-door Defender 110 is preferred by those who prefer practicality over the distinctiveness of the 3-door version.
There are three engine options on offer for the Land Rover Defender – two petrol-powered and one diesel-powered. The two petrol engine options for the Defender are 2.0-litre 300 PS turbo-petrol and 3.0-litre 400 PS turbo-petrol engines. On the other hand, the only diesel engine available for the Defender is a 3.0-litre mill, which produces 300 PS of power.
