Land Rover Defender 130 is a model created to break the rules and meet all family needs. Even if the requirements include riding with eight people. Defender 130 offers three rows of full-size seats, which makes it an ideal choice for exploring the world together and everyday use in a large group. Its equipment and driving characteristics mean that the model offers maximum comfort in all conditions.
Land Rover Defender 130 is the best in every way
130 is the largest model of the Defender brand. It was introduced to the brand’s offer in mid-2022. Another impressive car in the range, it surpasses the 7-seater 110 in terms of space and luxury also available for passengers in the last row of seats.
The Defender 130 offers enough space in the third row of seats for three adults. The seat is slightly raised above the rest of the cabin. This allows you to keep an eye on what is happening in front of the car while sitting in the back. The high roof line means that there is plenty of headroom. The armrests, padded with fine leather, make driving comfortable and relaxing – nothing like traveling on the extra seats folded in the trunk known from other SUVs. Thanks to the numerous storage compartments and USB-C ports for charging electrical devices, rear passengers can organize their time freely during the journey. The seat in the third row of seats is also heated, which makes driving even in winter as comfortable as possible from the first moment you take your seats.
The body of the Defender 130 has been deliberately extended by 340 mm over the 110 model. This gives this indomitable off-roader more space, while maintaining the legendary off-road qualities of the Defender brand and Land Rover technology. The extra centimeters at the rear of the body affected the value of the maximum angle and descent from steep hills, but thanks to the air suspension that increases the ground clearance – the Defender 130’s descent angle still puts SUVs and many off-road vehicles to shame, amounting to as much as 28.5 degrees.
Huge, luxurious, off-road – three words that best describe the Defender 130
The design of the latest Defender 130 has managed to combine seemingly contradictory characteristics, which translated into an unparalleled family car’s capabilities. The huge, more than 5-meter body, capable of providing space for eight people, is only one of the advantages of this car.
The interior materials of the Defender 130 give it the cozy feel of a luxury family car. Perforated Windsor leather trim complemented by Natural Light Oak wood veneer brings the cockpit much closer to a limousine than a rugged off-roader. Accessory packages allow you to customize its components to the specific needs of different users – so that Defender is the best partner in pursuing individual passions and achieving extraordinary goals for the driver and each of the 7 passengers.
This off-road 4×4 SUV combines off-road styling and functional elements (including powder-coated interior elements and a spare wheel located on the side opening rear door) with the comfort and quality of materials surpassing premium SUVs.
The opportunity to explore the world together is thanks to the steadfast iAWD drivetrain, which excels at optimizing riding efficiency on muddy and rocky trails. It enables instant changes in the torque distribution ratio according to the conditions analyzed with extreme frequency, and this is not the only feature that it outperforms traditional 4×4 permanent drives. The air suspension of the Defender 130 allows for smooth overcoming of uneven surfaces, while offering impeccable comfort when driving on asphalt roads.
This is complemented by elements of equipment that make driving simple and pleasant, regardless of whether the car is currently moving on a mountain path or on the highway. Standard on the 130, the larger 11.4-inch touchscreen provides easy operation of safety and off-road features. The cabin air purification system, on the other hand, takes care of the quality of the atmosphere inside the car so that both exhaust fumes in cities and dust in the wilderness do not interfere with the family pleasure of driving the Defender 130.
Properly strong and majestic
The dot over the “i” is the design of the Defender 130 and the parameters of the 6-cylinder engines available in this model. Thanks to this, the car not only looks impressive, but is also able to provide dynamic driving despite such a massive body.
The vehicle’s appearance is enhanced by extras such as the optional Extended Bright Pack, which includes lower panels finished in Ceres Silver Satin. Details in this color are also placed on the radiator grille and fenders. The whole is complemented by powerful 20-inch alloy wheels in Bright Silver finish.
The choice of power units available in the Defender 130 includes two petrol engines with 300 and 400 hp and two diesel engines developing 250 and 300 hp. Both are state-of-the-art and use hybrid MHEV technology that benefits both performance and ecology. All this makes the Defender 130 ideally suited to both discovering the world and overcoming the everyday challenges of family life.
