Land Rover Defender 2020 pricing and specification confirmed: This is how much you will pay for the new off-road SUV

Land Rover’s Defender 110 will arrive in Australian showrooms in June next year with three engine choices spread across nine variants priced from $69,990 before on-road costs.

Opening the range will be the base D200, which will be the only five-door variant powered by a 147kW/430Nm 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel, which sends drive to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

As a result, the D200 will accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 10.3 seconds, while fuel economy is pegged between 8.9-9.6 litres per 100km, according to figures published on the Land Rover UK website.

Stepping up to the D240 will cost buyers $75,900, but Land Rover has turned the wick up on the 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel to 177kW/430Nm, dropping the 0-100km/h sprint to 9.1s.

Fuel economy however, ranges from 8.9-9.5L/100km.

The D240 engine is also available in S, SE and First Edition form for $83,800, $91,300 and $102,500 respectively.

Petrol power will also be available in the new Defender, though Australian versions will skip the 224kW 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine found in UK models for the 297kW/550Nm 3.0-litre twin-scroll turbocharged inline six with mild-hybrid technology as seen in the US-market SUV.

Dubbed P400, the petrol-powered Defender is again paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive (4WD), which will result in a 0-100km/h run in 6.1s, according US-spec data.

Fuel economy is rated between 11.2-12.1L/100km, with the 48-volt mild-hybrid system aiding in keeping fuel usage down.

Four grades will be available with the 400 engine, the $95,700 S, $103,100 SE, $112,900 HSE and $137,100 flagship X.

Standard equipment includes a two-speed transfer box, hill start assist, hill decent control, LED headlights, electronic air suspension, 18-inch wheels, a full-sized spare and tyre pressure monitoring as standard.

Inside, the Defender 110 is fitted with rubber cabin flooring, dual-zone climate control, black fabric interior, eight-way power-adjustable front seats with heating, push-button start, 12V socket in the boot, and a 10.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with digital radio, satellite navigation, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Standard safety systems will also be competitive, with autonomous emergency braking, surround-view monitor, cruise control with speed limiter, driver attention alert, lane-keep assist, traffic sign recognition and wade sensing included.

S grades gain 19-inch wheels, automatic high beams and more upmarket interior appointments, while the HSE sports 20-inch wheels, keyless entry, power-folding side mirrors and Meridian sound system, with the SE adding blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

As for the First Edition and X flagships, matrix LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof and front console refrigerator are added.

The 110 will be the first body style available on the new-generation Defender, with the three-door 90 version expected to land in late 2020.
