Land Rover’s Defender 90 Review

Ultimately, the Defender is a vehicle for families and those that love to be adventurous. For the defender 90, that means a blend of off-road capability and modern equipment. It’s an SUV that looks good and drives well on the road, too.

Are defenders hard to drive?

The short wheelbase does wonders for its squared-off appearance, while the shortened rear overhangs and approach/departure angles make it look imposing on the road. In fact, the defender 90 is one of the most stylish and aggressive looking off-roaders around.

It’s also a great-looking vehicle inside, with a mix of exposed screw heads and classy-looking aluminium panels. There are some great details in the interior, including a clever use of leather on the dashboard and doors.

All occupants will be very comfortable in the cabin, and the seating layout is roomy. The back seat can be folded forward, creating more room for cargo, and there are also a number of seats that can fold completely flat, giving you even more cargo capacity.

There’s a huge boot too, and it’s bigger in the longer Defender 130 model, which ups the passenger capacity to eight.

As with all Land Rovers, the defender 90 is equipped with a range of off-roading aids, including All Terrain Progress Control, which works like low-speed cruise control in the field. It automatically adjusts the throttle response, traction control and diff settings according to the terrain, making it easy to navigate through mud, sand or snow.
