Here, we’ve discussed the official accessory packages available on the newly-launched Land Rover Defender, along with the goodies they offer
The Land Rover Defender was recently launched in India at a starting price of Rs. 73.98 lakh. It is available in two body styles; the three-door ‘90’ and the five-door ‘110’ models. The SUV offers five-, six-, and seven-seater configurations. There is just one engine option available – a 2.0-litre Ingenium petrol engine. This motor generates a peak power of 296 HP and a maximum torque of 400 Nm.
There’s a single transmission choice available here, an 8-speed torque converter automatic. Staying true to its off-roading roots, the 2020 Defender comes standard with an AWD system and a transfer case, the latter of which offers a low-ratio drive mode. The vehicle has an approach angle of 38o, departure angle of 40o, and break-over of 28o.
Its maximum wading depth is 900 mm, and the air suspension system can vary the ground clearance between 215mm and 292mm. For off-road junkies, the new Defender is available with plenty of official accessories as well. There are four accessory packages on offer – Expedition Pack, Country Pack, Urban Pack, and Adventure Pack.
On the Expedition Pack, you get a front bash plate, A-frame protection bars, deployable roof ladder, exterior side-mounted carrier, matt black decals (on the bonnet), spare wheel cover, raised air intake, expedition roof rack, mudflaps for all wheels, and wheel arch cladding. The Country Pack offers A-frame protection bars, boot space partition, mud flaps on all wheels, wheel arch cladding, portable rinse system, and rear scuff plates.
With the Urban Pack, you get 22-inch alloy wheels (5-spoke, gloss black), bright-coloured side tubes, scuff plates, front bash plate, metal pedals (accelerator and brake pedals), and a spare wheel cover.
On the Adventure Pack, you get A-frame protection bars, fixed side steps, integrated air compressor, spare wheel cover, seat backpack, exterior side-mounted carrier, rear scuff plate, portable rinse system, mud flaps on all wheels.
