So, the all-new Laned-Rover Defender is here. finally. after years of waiting.

Things to note:
The station wagons are being released first with commercial versions being phased in from next year. this is the opposite of how the original Land-Rover was released. The soft top came out in 1948, with Tickford coach-built station wagons following later, but it wasn't until 1954 that Land-Rover produced their own station wagon using their own bodywork.
Engines on offere witll include diesel, petrol and hybrid versions. The initial release comes with an automatic gearbox. Again this contrasts with late-model Defenders, which had a diesel engine and manual gearbox as standard.
LWB 110 and SWB 90 models are being offered initially with no announcement of a 130 double-cab pick-up so far.

The interior will be a vast improvement in terms of comfort compared to the old Defender. A centre console is equipped in the model photographed, but you can also specify a central seat or leave the space empty for a walk-though cabin. the gear lever is mounted on the dash so centre seat occupants will finally have somewhere to put their legs!
Rear seats also have more legroom than previous 110SWs. however the seats in the "boot" are now forward-facing fold-away seats instead of the traditional sideways-facing bench seats, restricting maximum occupancy to 8, where you could get as many as 10 or 12 in the old model.
Some of the plastic trim feels a bit... plastic, so I do wonder how squaddy-proof this new vehicle will be.
