2021 Land Rover Defender Test Drive Review: The 21st Century Off-Roader


The Land Rover Defender has an expanded lineup for the 2021 model year and comes in a choice of eight trims: base, S, X-Dynamic S, SE, X-Dynamic SE, First Edition, X-Dynamic HSE, and X. The newest Defender versions are the X-Dynamic trims. Two body styles – the 2-door Defender 90 and the 4-door Defender 110 – are offered, with some trims specific to either the 90 or 110. All models have four-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox, with a 296-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four standard on lower trims. More expensive models use a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder with a mild-hybrid system that makes 395 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque.

The entry-level Defender wears 18-inch steel wheels and comes with LED headlights, power-folding mirrors, and a body-color roof. Inside, there are features like a 3D surround-view camera system, wade sensing, eight-way semi-power front seats, dual-zone climate control, and a 10-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system.

The Defender S adds 19-inch alloy wheels, an interactive driver’s display, grained leather/Robust Woven Textile upholstery, and 12-way semi-powered front seats.

One of the newest additions is the X-Dynamic S. It has additional features like a duo-tone interior color scheme, illuminated metal treadplates, and an Ebony Morzine headliner.

The SE is reserved for the larger 110 and has premium LED headlights with signature DRLs, 20-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, a 10-speaker Meridian sound system, and 12-way powered front seats with memory.

On the X-Dynamic SE, the 20-inch wheels have a Satin Dark Grey finish, while the exterior gains Silicon Silver accents. The seats are upholstered in grained leather with Robustec Ribbon accents.

The First Edition is only compatible with the Defender 90. This model’s specs include a white contrast roof with a fabric folding section, First Edition badging, and 20-inch wheels. It also comes with an electronic air suspension and has a heated steering wheel.

Once again reverting to the 110 body style only is the X-Dynamic HSE. It ships with an opening panoramic sunroof, extended leather upholstery, Windsor leather seats with heating/cooling in front, and adaptive cruise control.

Finally, the Defender X is offered on both the 90 and 110 body styles. This version has a black contrast hood and roof, orange brake calipers, 20-inch wheels with a diamond turned finish, a head-up display, and a 14-speaker Meridian sound system.
