TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2021 Land Rover Defender

2021 Land Rover Defender Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
As a two-row vehicle, the Defender provides plenty of room. But if you want to use the third-row seat (optional on the four-door), the second row folks will need to slide forward a few inches, such that both rear rows end up with marginal legroom. This shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Ignore the 197.6-inch length on the spec sheet, as ten of these inches are taken up by the external spare. Without the spare, the Land Rover 110 is merely 187.4 inches long--insufficient for three spacious rows. Even with transverse powertrains, three-row crossovers tend to be as lengthy as the Defender with the spare included. One good way to maximize space in a relatively stubby vehicle is to mount the seats high so legs angle downward rather than forward, and the Defender's second-row seat is comfortably high off the floor. The third-row seat is not. There is plenty of headroom back there, so space constraints didn't force a low seat. There must have been another reason, such as the amount of space available for the folding mechanism. You might think that the third-row seat is intended for only occasional use, but Land Rover has given it seat heaters and its own HVAC fan control. All of this said, even a tight third row is better than none at all if you need to carry seven people. And none at all is what you can get in the Wrangler, Bronco, or G-Wagen. If you only occasionally need to carry a sixth person, the Defender alone offers the option of a front center jump seat in place of the console. What's more, this option is offered in the shorter wheelbase two-door Defender as well as in the four-door. see full Land Rover Defender review

TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2021 Land Rover Defender

2021 Land Rover Defender Powertrain: Pros
YearComment
2020 Currently the Land Rover Defender can be powered with one of two engines, a 296-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder or a 395-horsepower mild-hybrid supercharged and turbocharged inline-six-cylinder. For 2022, a 518-horsepower supercharged V8 will also be offered. All are paired with a manually shiftable eight-speed automatic transmission. I tested a Defender with the six-cylinder engine, and found it accelerates the 5,165-pound SUV with little apparent effort--impressive for a 3.0-liter. The 48-volt mild-hybrid system boosts low-rpm grunt in two ways: via a belt-linked starter-generator and by powering an electrically driven supercharger. At higher rpm an exhaust-driven twin-scroll turbocharger assumes responsibility for boost. More power in a vehicle of this size and type would make little rational sense. To my ear, the boosted inline six sounds somewhat like a diesel, which seems appropriate in a truck. But does it sound the same in Jaguars? I doubt it. see full Land Rover Defender review
