The new Defender

Defender takes luxury adventure to new heights

DUBAI, May 9, 2024

Defender is taking luxurious adventure to a new level with a suite of enhancements across the brand line-up, while the new 110 Sedona Edition and simplified spec levels make it easier than ever to pick the perfect vehicle.
Passenger comfort is taken up a notch with a new Signature Interior Pack and, for Defender 130 clients, the introduction of the luxurious new Captain Chairs Pack. 
The new seating option for the second row elevates the passenger experience with two individual luxury seats, featuring arm rests either side and comfortable winged headrests, separated by an aisle that giving gracious walkthrough access to the third row. Across the line-up, the introduction of a new D350 powertrain also provides a powerful, flexible new engine option.
Mark Cameron, Managing Director, Defender, said: “Our vision for Defender is to continuously improve what is already a superb vehicle that can go anywhere and do anything. The introduction of the new Sedona Edition, enhanced interior options and our most powerful ever Defender diesel engine mean our clients now have more choice than ever. And with the new Captain Chairs in Defender 130, up to seven people can now travel in greater comfort on both epic adventures and localised expeditions.”
New Defender 110 Sedona Edition
Sedona, Arizona, provides the inspiration for the colour of the new 110 Sedona Edition – a place of adventure, stunning natural beauty and mindful escapism. The natural deep red hue of its iron-rich sandstone landforms has been applied to an exclusive new model.
The Defender 110 Sedona Red body is complemented by an Extended Black Pack, with Narvik Black Defender script, front grille and skid plates plus 22-inch Gloss Black alloy wheels and a body-coloured spare wheel cover – an exclusive combination for this new edition2.  The Sedona Red colour was first seen on Defender 130 and the Defender 110 Sedona Edition will be offered for one year only.
Unique to the Sedona Edition, a new optional bonnet decal depicts the topography of Sedona and reflects Defender’s unstoppable go-anywhere capability and its clientele’s thirst for adventure. The exterior additions are completed by an optional Sedona Red exterior side-mounted gear carrier, ideal for carrying wet or muddy clothing or equipment.
Based on the high specification of Defender X-Dynamic HSE, the Sedona Edition’s interior is available with Ebony Windsor Leather and KvadratTM seats for the first time, providing a tough and highly tactile environment.
The seats are part of the newly introduced Signature Interior Pack, which brings a suite of enhancements for greater luxury and attention to detail, tactile new material additions and convenient storage pockets for front row passengers.
Defender 130 Captain Chairs Pack
The luxurious new individual chairs available for second-row occupants in Defender 130 provide ultimate comfort, spaciousness and versatility, separated from each other by an aisle that gives elegant and effortless access to the third row. With heating and cooling technology, they’re perfect for first-class adventures across the globe, bringing front-row comfort to those travelling in row two.
Individual arm rests on each of the two chairs raise comfort levels even further, while the aisle between the seats brings additional space for the centre passenger in row three to stretch out. Twin cupholders on a raised area just behind the front centre console provide extra practicality and create an informal divide between the seats.
The second-row Captain Chairs can also be fitted with winged headrests, like those in the front, for even greater comfort on longer journeys and adventures on Defender X and V8 models. They are also available as part of the Signature Interior Pack on X-Dynamic HSE.
New Signature Interior Pack3
The new Signature Interior Pack combines a comprehensive suite of upgrades to Defender’s interior across seating and trim finishes, for an even more distinctive environment. Available across all body designs, the Signature Interior Pack is standard on Defender X and V8 specifications, and optional for Defender Dynamic HSE.
In the front row, it provides 14-way electrically controlled seats with heating, cooling and memory functions, with supportive new winged headrests. In the second row, climate seats are fitted – with winged headrests on Defender 110 and 130 models. For those in the third row of Defender 110 and 130, heated seats ensure cold-weather comfort across the entire vehicle.
The luxurious Signature Interior Pack provides material upgrades for heightened tactility throughout the Defender’s cabin, including Windsor Leather and KvadratTM seats, available in Ebony or Caraway/Ebony and New UltrafabricsTM available in Light Cloud/Lunar colourway.
Complementing the seats are softer accents through the cabin and a new centre console side pocket is found on both driver and passenger sides, allowing those in the front to keep smaller items secure with elasticated sides and felt inner trim.
Defender’s distinctive exposed cross car beam is metallic grey with a powder coat finish, while moulded trim accents are finished in Satin Black with subtle chrome interior accents. The Signature Interior Pack also adds a tactile Suedecloth headlining in Light Cloud or Ebony, depending on the seating choice.
