    Off-roading prowess

    With extra dimensions, the off-roading abilities of the SUV are expected to be affected a bit with a lower departure angle. However, the automaker smartly raised the suspension slightly to allow it to play on rough terrain.

    Can accommodate eight passengers

    The Defender 130 can accommodate up to eight passengers in a 2+3+3 layout, which makes it the only mainstream SUV in the European market that can carry more than seven occupants. The automaker arranged the three rows in a ‘stadium’ format with the centre and last rows slightly elevated for better forward visibility. As for convenient accessibility to the third row, there is a sliding and folding middle row.
