Land Rover Defender – Features
There are 6 airbags in the new Land Rover Defender. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are a cost option, with adaptive cruise control, active lane-keeping, and blind-spot monitoring are a-la-carte items in the personalization menu of the iconic SUV.
360-degree birds eye view 3D Surround camera is regularly fitted as standard by Land Rover Malaysia though, and a novel system called Clearsight Ground View provides incredible “under bonnet” visibility while traversing in off-road paths and obstacles. Clever!
The rearview mirror has also been upgraded to a digital unit called ClearSight Rear View Mirror, displaying an unobstructed image of the rear of the vehicle. The large front seats in the Land RoverDefender come with plenty of adjustments, cooling, plus a four-way lumbar with memory function.
Four-zone automatic air-conditioning with multiple rear cooling vents is a standard fitment. The occupants also sit higher in the new Land Rover Defender, and looking out of the vehicle is greatly aided by large windows. Occupants on the third row also have air-conditioning vents directed at them as well as independent fan speed control.
Upholstery materials are meanwhile against the norm, being targeted as the ultimate recreational vehicle. Apart from tough fabric and leather, there is also the option for hard-wearing materials. The large central display called Pivi Pro measures 10.0 inches and functions as the control for the vehicle settings plus information on the 4x4i system.
Smartphone connectivity is standard and there is even communication via apps.A Meridian premium sound system plays high-quality output over 10 speakers and an amplifier with 400-Watt power. There is also a wireless smartphone charger just below the large centre armrest.
