After more than three years, my wife and I decided to scrape all our camping gear together and to hit our favourite place, the Cederberg Mountains, for a weekend of camping. Feeling like newbies to the camping scene, we packed this Land Rover Defender 90 (2.0l Turbopetrol, 8-speed automatic) to the roof with gear.
Shattered. Destroyed. My illusion of one day buying a Defender 90 for my little family lies in tatters. But it’s not for the usual reasons…
Pick of the bunch! We at NamWheels have been fortunate enough to test quite a few new Defender models from Land Rover and it quickly turned out that this 110 D300 is the one you want; for the following reasons…
Second to none
Without a doubt the most important model for the British manufacturer, Land Rover; the Defender name has been one to be reckoned with for over 70 years. We recently tested the new P400 S model to see if this name will still be as formidable in the future.
As a previous owner and current aficionado of the old Land Rover Defender, I’m going to attempt something daring and hopefully unique: a full review of this new one without mentioning the old dear…
Skuif opsy, die baas het opgedaag
Geskep om enige landskap te troef, is die oorspronklike Land Rover Defender in die 1940’s aan die lewe gebring as ‘n simplistiese, dog dominerende masjien. So suksesvol was die ontwerp, dat Land Rover slegs net meer as ‘n dekade na die bekendstelling, meer as ‘n half miljoen eenhede produseer het.
Die nuwe Land Rover Defender is pas plaaslik bekend gestel en ons het reeds die geleentheid gehad om die merkwaardige nuwe tegnologie in hierdie ikoon te aanskou. Die Defender het die mark pas meer verras deur om ‘n hibriede model na Suider-Afrika te bring.

My Old Defender didn’t do that.. !
The slogan that carried my laughter, quoted many times by my co-driver Dieter Losskarn, throughout the three wonderful days we had with the Land Rover Mzansi Edge Expedition.
The wait is finally over… time to heat up the popcorn!
