2020 Land Rover Defender Review

  • Strong off-road capabilities
  • Wealth of customization options
  • High-tech safety and off-road features
  • Smooth ride for an off-road-oriented SUV
  • Options can get pricey
  • Cargo door is heavy and opens toward the curb
  • All-new Defender model
  • Available seven-passenger seating
  • Kicks off the second Defender generation introduced for 2020

The Land Rover Defender has been cast as forbidden fruit for a lot of off-road enthusiasts. There was a brief moment in the 1990s when Land Rover officially sold them in the U.S., but crash test standards quickly put an end to importation. Either despite — or because of — its rarity, the Defender has enjoyed cult-like status here. Now it's been reborn with the arrival of the 2020 Defender. But will the faithful like this kinder, gentler Defender?

Underpinned by a new chassis, the 2020 Defender is meant to compete in the new world of rugged but luxurious SUVs. The styling is more rounded and smoothed over and is missing some of the brawny, no-nonsense utilitarian looks of its forebear. But short overhangs and an impressive maximum ground clearance of 11.5 inches hints at the Defender's off-road capability. The new Defender is initially available as a four-door, and a two-door model will be available for the 2021 model year.

The midsize luxury SUV class is full of strong offerings from Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Many of these models offer packages to enhance off-road capability, but the new Land Rover Defender looks to be unmatched in this regard. Its modern technology and ample luxury should also satisfy. We think this newest incarnation of an icon is worth a look.

  • EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
    7.9/10
    The Land Rover Defender packs legitimate off-road capability — provided you pick the right options — and makes no sacrifice in on-road comfort. It's an admirable accomplishment. Our test vehicle had a few build quality issues that may be attributable to a hard, early production life. That aside, we're impressed with this modern interpretation of a classic nameplate.

Which Defender does Edmunds recommend?

Land Rover is rolling out the Defender slowly, starting with the Defender 110. The SE trim level is likely a good way to go since it comes with the more powerful six-cylinder engine and a useful collection of features. This midlevel trim is also highly customizable if you want to add even more features.

Land Rover Defender models

The 2020 Land Rover Defender is offered in six trim levels: base, S, SE, HSE, First Edition and X. Land Rover initially said both the four-door Defender 110 and two-door Defender 90 would be available. However, a pandemic-related delay pushed the Defender 90's debut to the 2021 model year. All 2020 Defenders are the 110.

Five-passenger seating is standard. An available jump seat that fits between the two front seats boosts capacity to six passengers. The Defender 110 can also be had with a two-person third-row seat, but it cannot be combined with the jump seat.

Power comes from either a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (296 horsepower, 295 lb-ft) or a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine (395 hp, 406 lb-ft of torque) with mild hybrid capability. All Defenders come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission, a two-speed transfer case and all-wheel drive.

Base
Standard feature highlights include:

  • Adjustable air suspension (can raise or lower the Defender's ride height)
  • 18-inch steel wheels
  • LED headlights
  • Cloth seating with leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Power-adjustable front seats
  • 10-inch touchscreen
  • Six-speaker sound system
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration

All Defenders also come with

  • Forward collision mitigation (warns you of an impending collision and applies the brakes in certain scenarios)
  • Lane keeping system (makes minor steering corrections to help keep the vehicle centered in its lane)
  • Blind-spot monitor (alerts you if a vehicle in the next lane over is in your blind spot)
  • 360-degree camera system (gives you a top-down view of the Defender and its surroundings for parking or off-roading situations)

S
Similar to the base but has:

  • 19-inch wheels
  • Leather and cloth upholstery
  • Upgraded power-adjustable front seats

SE
Adds on to the S with:

  • V6 engine
  • 20-inch wheels
  • Power-adjustable steering column
  • Premium sound system
  • Digital rearview mirror (allows you to see out the back even with a fully loaded cargo area)

First Edition
This limited-production trim is equipped similar to the SE but has:

  • Special paint and trim
  • All-terrain tires
  • Special off-road driving modes
  • Torque-vectoring differential that can maximize available traction
  • Heated front-row seats and heated steering wheel
  • Refrigerator compartment in front center console

HSE
Compared to the SE, the HSE adds:

  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Premium leather upholstery
  • Adaptive cruise control (adjusts speed to maintain a constant distance between the Defender and the car in front)

X
This top-of-the-line trim offers special styling and paint details. It also comes with just about everything that's otherwise optional on the lower trim levels, including:

  • Special off-road driving modes
  • Torque-vectoring differential that can maximize available traction
  • All-terrain tires
  • Heated second-row seats
  • Head-up display
  • Upgraded 15-speaker sound system

A variety of accessory packs are also available and include features such as wheel arch flares, a spare tire cover, a roof rack and even an integrated air compressor.

2/5 stars, Not so great .. full of glitches
Yalaska,
P400 110 HSE 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Twincharger gas/electric hybrid 8A)
I’ve spent a small fortune on this car Less than 200 miles in and the “low battery” alarm popped up and the car wouldn’t start. The car was taken to the dealer to find out after 2 weeks that there’s a faulty module (for the central screen) that keeps draining the battery The car drove fine for a while .. then it happened again .. this time they said it was the battery And now it happened again (car won’t start with low battery alarm) The car has 4K miles on it in 5 months and I love it But if you buy it then be prepared to spend a significant amount of your time driving a loaner
1/5 stars, Beautiful! However constantly in the shop
Land Rover loved,
P400 110 First Edition 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Twincharger gas/electric hybrid 8A)
I bought it in June 2020, I had it one week and off to the shop it went. 59 days later I get it back. Stereo, phone and dash panel don’t work, now we are in August have it back for now two weeks. Total of 350 miles on it, now the wire harness needs to be replaced, new master panel and display. Ok get it back in October yes October! Going smooth so far. November back to the shop needs update and has to have it forced. Now December and well now it likes to park it self while in motion and turns off not once but twice. Not to mention it did it to another defender owner only they were going down the interstate. 2021 you think ok this at some time it’s going to be fixed, nope phone, cameras and stereo work when it wants to.. just frustrating I spent all this money and it’s a lemon in Land Rover clothing. Love the car but completely disappointed. UPDATE...... Car back to the shop newest problem snow covered roads the emergency lane assist comes on and pulls you into on coming traffic. Just got my service records and it’s been in the shop for a total of 140 days kicker is I have had the car for 8 months.. recommended to not buy this car they should recall the entire line.
5/5 stars, Amazing SUV
Ben Carter,
P400 110 HSE 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Twincharger gas/electric hybrid 8A)
Ive had me 110 SE for 2 months 5500 miles for construction site visits. Already used the roof rack to haul a farm gate Quick smooth and agile. A couple problems: the passenger door pillar made a lot of noise. They fixed it. Audio went out for a while but eventually came back. The DTE gage stopped working. I have to hold remote key fob right at door handle to unlock door. Shirting into reverse from sport is very complex. You must shift into drive from sport before you can reverse. Complex. Audio, climate and nav are vert hard to operate. Very clumsy after driving MB
4/5 stars, Can't rate yet, back to dealer in first week
Rebbie,
P400 110 HSE 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Twincharger gas/electric hybrid 8A)
The vehicles I tested drove rode smoothly, looked great and caught my attention. The deal went well and off we were. A quarter of the way home error messages for emergency braking and cruise control went off. The cruise control was inoperable. This has been going on intermittently. The dealer has had the car several days, no news on how to fix. They discovered an oil leak while it was there. Um, now I'm quickly losing confidence in my new vehicle. UPDATE after 2 separate one week visits with the dealer and several failed efforts they were finally able to iron out the issues and the car is working perfectly. After 2000 miles the Defender is a beast. We've had tons go snow and horrible cold here in WI. LIKES - snappy engine performance, snow and ice performance, camera system is sublime. DISLIKES - there is wind noise when traveling 70 and above.

2020 Land Rover Defender videos

SPEAKER 1: If you're into off-road vehicles, it's a great time to be alive. There are a lot of great choices out there, and it looks like the new Ford Bronco has the potential to be one of the best. There's no way to tell for sure until we get to drive it, so I thought I'd take the time to have a surface level chat about the Bronco's design, style, and how it stacks up against its two most direct competitors, the Jeep Wrangler and the Land Rover Defender. As always, hit that subscribe button below, because we have a ton of great content coming your way. And head over to edmunds.com for all your car shopping needs. If you haven't seen our Ford Bronco preview video yet, you might want to go check that out right now. Go ahead, I'll wait. When it comes to style, people often reference the past. Is it nostalgia, or does it take time for timeless style to develop? Personally, I think it's a combination of both. With the revival of the new Ford Bronco and Land Rover Defender, the Jeep Wrangler has its work cut out for it. All three are iconic off-roaders with impressive specs and modern engineering. But they also celebrate their heritage with motifs and design elements that date back several decades. The common thread? Well, they're all boxy with short overhangs for better off-road capabilities. Most of them are also a lot more primitive and utilitarian than the typical family crossover SUV. Let's start with the Jeep, since in a lot of ways it was the originator of this class, as one of the first mass-produced four wheel drive vehicles. The Jeep was instrumental in helping the Allies win World War II, and went on to become a symbol of freedom and sacrifice. It's easy to see its lineage, even with an eight decade difference. They're both purpose-built and fairly simple in design. After all, the fewer intricacies and complications means quicker production, and that was critical to the war effort. The Willys MA here shows the origins of the Wrangler's distinctive grill, with these upright metal slats. They're also the flat fenders and slab-sided body that are instantly recognizable. Other Jeep staples include the fold down windshield as well as the removable doors. The MB version is the one that we recognize as the traditional military Jeep. Note the grill is now stamped steel rather than those welded slats, because it speeds up production. After the war, Willys introduced the first civilian Jeep. That's where the CJ name comes from. Over the decades, it evolved, but remains easily recognizable. There have been some tweaks here and there, with maybe a little rounded-off corner here and rounded-off fenders there, and even, yeah, rectangular headlights. Ugh. The CJ title was dropped in favor of the Wrangler name in the late 1980s. The Jeep has the kind of brand equity that you simply can't buy. And the fan base is very dedicated, as evidenced by a handful of comments in that Bronco preview video. Then there's the Land Rover Defender. The Defender's heritage can be traced back to the original Land Rover Series I, II, III. Unlike the Jeep, these were developed for agricultural and light commercial duty in postwar England. They were similarly primitive, though. In the '80s, the Defender came on the scene with the squared-off style that so many of us come to love. The two main versions, Defender 90 and the longer Defender 110 were only sold in the US for a few years, which kind of made them forbidden fruit for a lot of people. Its rarity and price gained its own cult following, and that squared-off shaped and exposed rivets had a charm all its own. The Defender underwent its only true redesign last year. In the process, it lost some of that aforementioned charm. The new Defender is more of a modern reinterpretation rather than an evolution. It's softer in its style, which may be a disappointment to Defender loyalists. But it may also gain a wider audience as a result. To use a movie industry reference, it's great to have critical acclaim, but every now and then you need a blockbuster to keep the lights on. Now the problem is, this dumpster fire that is 2020 makes it really difficult to tell whether or not the Defender is a success or failure when it comes to sales. We'll just have to wait a little longer to see what the public's reaction is to it. There are hints of the original Defender here and there, but it's simply not as bad ass as the original. Sure, it has some mean-looking headlights, and that chopped-off rear tail section. But the rounding of the corners and the fenders almost remind me of a Honda Element from certain angles, and that's not exactly a compliment. I have no doubt that it's a very capable off-roader. And if current Land Rover vehicles are an indication, all that technical wizardry should make it a lot easier to navigate difficult terrain. Part of the allure of off-roading is actually in the struggle. It's that sensation that you're an integral part of reaching the destination. I have a feeling that the Defender might actually make things too easy, if that's even possible. The interior is a good example. It has echoes of the past, but it's overpowered by the modern and luxurious setting it's in. I'm sure it's a great glamper, and it's probably better to drive on the road. But in this instance, I'm falling on the side of edginess. I know, me, Mr. Luxury! Who knew? Plus I feel kind of bad mucking up that lovely cabin. And now, onto the new hotness of the moment, new Ford Bronco. Has the Bronco split the difference between the Jeep and the Defender? No. No, no, no. From my in-person experience, it's definitely a lot closer to the Jeep Wrangler than the Defender. In some ways, it's what I wish the Defender could have been, with its strong, retro identity, with all the tech and convenience features that we get from any modern car. I can see how some might feel that Ford was a little heavy-handed with the retro styling, because I sort of feel the same way. Or at least I used to. When you think of other retro revivals, like the PT Cruiser, Chevy HHR, or that monstrosity that was the last Thunderbird, yeah, I can see that. But man, it just seems to work for me with this Bronco. What really resonates with me is that they didn't put any retro features in there that didn't really serve a purpose. Like the peaked fenders that are a retro callback, but they allow the driver to get a better indication of where the corners are when they're off-roading. On the whole, it's the details that make the Bronco special. It's as if Ford let Jeep take over market research for two decades while they took a massive shortcut that isn't on any map, and ended up at the same destination at the same time. I suppose Chevy could have followed suit. But that new Blazer has abandoned all of its heritage in favor of mass-market appeal, as questionable as that may be. In the more affluent class, the Mercedes G Wagon, well that's more of a reboot than a sequel, because honestly, I still have a hard time telling the new one from the previous one. If successful, the Ford Bronco may usher in a new era of cool off-roaders. Or at least one can hope. I would love to see a revival of the Toyota FJ, and perhaps with a hail Mary pass in the automotive industry, maybe we could someday see an International Scout come back. Come on, Navistar. It's a license to print money. Anyway, those are my thoughts on the new Ford Bronco, the Jeep Wrangler, as well as the Land Rover Defender. Let me know what you think in the comments below. And as always, head on to edmunds.com for more information on the Bronco and all of its competition. To see more videos like this, hit subscribe.

Land Rover Defender vs. the competition

Land Rover Defender vs. Jeep Wrangler

The Jeep Wrangler is the undisputed off-road champion of SUVs, and the Defender will have to be immensely capable to keep up with the Jeep over a challenging trail. Yet the Defender has just as much heritage as the Jeep, but it offers luxury and comfort the Wrangler can't hope to match even in its most expensive trim level.

Land Rover Defender vs. Toyota Land Cruiser

In the realm of continent exploring SUVs, only the Land Cruiser has a similar iconic track record of capability and longevity. But Toyota has allowed the Land Cruiser to grow old, as well as expensive, and many younger buyers might not be attracted to the Toyota when it doesn't look, or feel, anywhere near as modern as the new Defender. The Defender's smaller footprint makes it more nimble in tighter off-road situations.

Compare Land Rover Defender & Toyota Land Cruiser features 

Land Rover Defender vs. Mercedes-Benz G-Class

The G-Class seems like an unlikely competitor to the Defender, but it's one of the only luxury SUVs with any degree of true off-road prowess. It also has enormous luxury cachet and an almost unmatched street presence. But for buyers who can't swing the G-Class' eye-watering price yet still want something stylish and rugged, the Defender looks to be an excellent option.

2020 Land Rover Defender First Impressions

What is it?

Land Rover's extensive lineup of SUVs is growing with the arrival of the 2020 Land Rover Defender, what the company is calling its most capable vehicle yet. The larger Defender 110 variant goes on sale in the spring followed by the smaller Defender 90 in summer. Prices start at $50,925 for the 110 and $66,125 for the special First Edition 90, including destination charges. Base-level 90 trims arrive later in the fall and will start in the low $50,000s.

These Defender variants are named for the historic models that referenced the wheelbases in inches. Although these new models share the 90 and 110 names of their forebears, they are about 10 inches longer than the original Defender (now measuring 102 and 119 inches, respectively). Compared to the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, the Defender 110 is 0.2 inch taller, 2.6 inches wider and 7.9 inches longer if you have the rear-mounted spare tire.

The styling of the 2020 Land Rover Defender is more rounded and smoothed over and is missing some of the brawny no-nonsense utilitarian looks of its forebear. It does carry forward some recognizable traits of the old Defender models, we just wish there were more of them. At the very least the short overhangs are present, allowing for a 38-degree maximum approach angle and a 40-degree departure angle, with an impressive 11.5 inches of ground clearance. The maximum wading depth is 35.4 inches.

2020 Land Rover Defender
What does it compete with?

The Defender's competition depends somewhat on if you go for the 90 or the 110, and how you intend to use it. For off-road and adventure fans, we'd consider the Jeep Wrangler its primary rival. More luxury rivals are the Lexus LX or GX SUVs and even the Mercedes-Benz G-Class if you're more of an urban explorer. Other Land Rover and Jeep models represent alternatives, as does the forthcoming Ford Bronco.

2020 Land Rover Defender - Rear
2020 Land Rover Defender
What engines will it have?

There are two engine choices. The Defender 110 comes with the base P300 engine: a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (296 horsepower, 295 lb-ft of torque), which Land Rover estimates will get the vehicle to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds. Shoppers can opt for the P400 mild hybrid powertrain (395 hp, 406 lb-ft) made up of a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder paired with a 48-volt electrical system that is fed by lithium-ion battery packs, which also power an electric supercharger. It should hit 60 mph in only 5.8 seconds. The Defender 90 is only offered with the P400 engine.

Both powertrains are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, a two-speed transfer case, permanent four-wheel drive and Land Rover's Terrain Response system. Optional locking center and rear differentials are available, along with the latest configurable Terrain Response 2 system. Land Rover says maximum towing capacity will be 8,201 pounds.

2020 Land Rover Defender - Action Front 3/4
2020 Land Rover Defender
What kind of features will it come with?

There are six trim levels to choose from: Standard, S, SE, HSE, First Edition and the top-of-the-line X.

Feature highlights for the Standard trim include 18-inch wheels, a full-size spare tire mounted to the tailgate, an LED exterior lighting, an air suspension, dual-zone automatic climate control, cloth upholstery, a navigation system, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, frontal collision mitigation, lane keeping assist, trailer stability assist, a blind-spot monitor, and a surround-view camera system.

The Defender S adds 19-inch wheels, automatic high beams, a virtual instrument panel, partial leather upholstery, additional front-seat adjustments, a center armrest for second-row seats, and second-row brackets and charging for tablets. The SE comes with the P400 engine, 20-inch wheels, upgraded headlights, a virtual rearview mirror, a 11-speaker Meridian sound system, and a system that warns exiting passengers of approaching vehicles.

The HSE gets enhanced with a panoramic sunroof, heated and cooled front seats, full premium-leather upholstery, and adaptive cruise control. The Defender X tops it all off with additional off-road features, unique exterior and interior styling elements, rough-cut interior wood accents, and a 15-speaker premium Meridian audio system.

Shoppers can also add one of four accessory packs. Most notable is the Adventure Pack that comes with a portable rinse system featuring a 1.7-gallon pressurized water reservoir (that you can use to wash off dirty gear, for instance), a trunk-mounted air compressor, a side-mounted cargo pod, and a removable backpack. Not planning on being so extreme? The Urban Pack adds scuff plates, a spare wheel cover, underbody protection, alloy pedals, and a cargo cover that can double as a picnic mat.

A fabric roof option allows second-row passengers to stand safari-style, poking their heads above the roof, when parked. That option will come to the Defender 110 the year after.

Other options include fixed tube steps or deployable running boards, deep rubber floor mats, a remote 10,000-pound winch, Land Rover's ClearSight Ground View system, a head-up display with off-road and articulation info, and an intake snorkel. Land Rover's Activity Key wristband is also here and now has a digital readout for added functionality.

2020 Land Rover Defender - Front 3/4
2020 Land Rover Defender
What's the interior like?

The Defender 110 seats five passengers as standard. You can add a pair of third-row seats to increase capacity to seven. The Defender has an optional front center seat that allows three people to sit in the front row. Cargo capacity for the 110 behind its second row maxes out at 34 cubic feet, or 10.7 cubes behind the optional third row. Maximum cargo capacity is listed at 78.8 cubic feet.

Inside, the same theme continues, though with some touches such as beefy grab handles that give it some character. Sitting atop the center of the dash is Land Rover's new PIVI Pro infotainment system that promises quicker responses and fewer operational steps than the rage-inducing system in current Land Rovers. Unfortunately, all of this new tech means you can't just hose out the interior after a long dusty day like you could with the old model. The carpeting, however, is capable of quick removal for cleaning and drying.

Why does it matter?

Land Rover Defenders are automotive icons thanks to their unapologetically utilitarian looks and all-terrain capabilities. There was a brief moment in the 1990s when Land Rover officially sold them in the U.S., but crash-test standards quickly put an end to importation. Either despite — or because of — its rarity, the Defender has enjoyed cult-like status here.

The Defender has been cast as forbidden fruit for a lot of off-road enthusiasts. This redesign gives it far more reach, but will the faithful like this kindler, gentler Defender?

EdmundsEdmunds says

The 2020 Land Rover Defender has all the makings of a serious off-road vehicle, just as its storied predecessor. This second generation, however, is considerably more appealing and comfortable for everyday use compared to the bare-bones original. The interior is more in line with contemporary SUVs, offering similar creature comforts with a rugged appearance. With a choice of two wheelbases, two engines, six trim levels and numerous customization options, it's very likely that there's a Defender to match your particular desires. We're also quick to point out that the Defender looks quite a bit more substantial in person than it appears in photos.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 Land Rover Defender?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
