2020 Land Rover Defender 110 price and specs

The new generation of Land Rover's iconic Defender is now arriving in Australian showrooms, with prices starting at around $70,000 and topping out north of $130,000.


The born-again Land Rover Defender is finally hitting Australian showrooms, with larger ‘110’ models arriving first with short-wheelbase ’90’ variants due sometime in 2021.

Buyers can choose from a range of trim levels and powertrain options, starting with unnamed base D200 and D240 models climbing through S, SE and HSE grades and topping out with First Edition and X models at launch.

Like its iconic predecessor, the new Land Rover Defender promises to go ‘above and beyond’ the capabilities expected of an SUV, while also being safer, more comfortable and efficient than the model it replaces.

The entry-level D200 is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel making 147kW and 430Nm.

Defender 110 S models and up come as standard with the more powerful D240 tune, which ups the 2.0-litre diesel’s outputs to a healthier 177kW and 430Nm.

Finally, the sole petrol option in Australia currently is the P400, which features a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline six with 48V mild-hybrid technology, making 294kW and 550Nm.

All models come fitted as standard with an eight-speed automatic with high- and low-range transfer box.

Fuel Economy

Both the D200 and D240 four-cylinder diesels wear an official fuel economy rating of 7.6L/100km on the combined cycle, and emit 202g/km of CO2.

The P400 inline six petrol is rated at 9.9L/100km and 230g/km of CO2.


ANCAP and Euro NCAP are yet to give the new Land Rover Defender a safety rating.

Regardless, all versions of the Defender come as standard with autonomous emergency braking (AEB), a surround camera system, cruise control with speed limiter, driver condition monitor, lane-keeping assist, parking sensors all round, and traffic sign recognition.

The Defender also comes equipped with front airbags (with passenger seat occupant sensor), tyre pressure monitoring, seatbelt reminders, and ISOFIX mounts for the two outboard rear seats.


Land Rover quotes a length of 5018mm, width of 2008mm (mirrors folded), and height of 1967mm.

There’s also a 3022mm wheelbase, standard ground clearance of 218mm – off-road height increases to 293mm – and a boot volume of 916L-1075L (seven seat model/five seat model).

Off-road figures include approach/departure angles of 30.1/37.7 degrees in standard guise, with a standard ramp angle of 22 degrees.
