Land Rover Unveils New Defender 90 All-Terrain, Priced From RM838k

Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia has launched its all-new 2022 Land Rover Defender 90, the all-terrain award-winning model which has been crowned as the most capable Land Rover to date.

The new Land Rover Defender 90 sports a modern and bold design, while maintaining its highly-acclaimed all-terrain capabilities. By popular demand, as seen with the Defender 110, there are two ingenium engines to choose from, the P300 4-cylinder Petrol or the P400 6-cylinder MHEV Petrol. The three-door short-wheelbase Defender 90 has a maximum wading
depth of 900mm and is also equipped with a twin-speed transfer box, which provides a boost of speed and control to power through challenging conditions such as steep inclines and declines, unpredictable terrain and off-road driving.

In addition, Electronic Air Suspension ensures a comfortable driving experience, with an adjustable height available to suit driving purposes. This includes an access height of 40mm below normal ride height, to an extended height of up to 75mm. Meanwhile, for extreme off-road conditions and unsteady surfaces, a further extended ride height of 70mm is available, providing exceptional wheel articulation and poise, no matter the demands of the journey. Complementing this, the Adaptive Dynamics feature allows drivers to fine-tune their driving characteristics. With adaptive dampers evaluating bodily movements up to 500 times per second, Adaptive Dynamics utilises the data to optimise control and comfort instantaneously for the driver.

Land Rover’s next-generation Electronic Vehicle Architecture, dubbed EVA 2.0, underpins the digital revolution, supporting Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) updates that ensure the Defender 90 will get better with age and enable Land Rover’s fast and intuitive new Pivi Pro infotainment system. EVA 2.0 consists of a state-of-the-art forward-facing digital camera, advanced ultrasonic sensors and a powerful onboard network which supports a comprehensive suite of driver assistance technologies. This includes a 3D Surround Camera that provides 360-degree visibility on surrounding areas, off and on-road, for maximum security. The advanced camera system provides enhanced augmented on-screen visualisation when using Wade Sensing and Land Rover’s ClearSight Ground View transparent bonnet technology, to improve visibility.

The Defender 90 is as stylish as it is powerful. Available in five colours, the new model comes with 170 individual accessories, the largest range ever produced for a Land Rover, ensuring that no two Defender vehicles will be the same. The accessories include the innovative Exterior Side-Mounted Gear Carrier that offers extra space, as well as a new Above and Beyond Collection of outdoor performance equipment and apparel, complementing the driver’s adventures with the Defender 90.

“The Land Rover Defender 90 is celebrated globally for its engineering, technology and design. With its all-terrain capabilities, we are confident that this powerful and iconic vehicle is well-suited to enhance the driving experience for Malaysians, whether on city streets or off the beaten track,” Jeffrey Gan, Managing Director, Retail and Distribution, Sime Darby Motors Malaysia said.

“This is a model that has been 70 years in the making and consistent innovation has led to this feat. The Defender 90 is purpose-built for optimum durability and equipped with advanced technologies. With this, customers can embark on both on-road and off-road adventures in first-class comfort and safety, while being prepared for any environment,” Syed Ahmad Muzri Syed Faiz, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia remarked.

Priced from RM838,800 and RM1,098,800 for P300 and P400 MHEV respectively (with 10% SST and excluding Road Tax, Registration and Insurance), the new Defender 90 comes with a Land Rover Care programme which includes a five-year warranty, five years’ free service and three years’ roadside assistance.
