Ciro de Siena gets behind the wheel of the all-new Land Rover Defender. With such an illustrious history behind it, the Defender is an iconic vehicle. Replacing it was never going to be easy. This video review also covers an offroad test too.
Hello! Ciro here. This has to have been one of the toughest assignments in modern motoring: design and build a car to replace one of the most iconic cars ever made. The car which pretty much invented the idea of the SUV. The choice of hardcore adventurists the world over...the Land Rover Defender. That is a weighty nameplate to carry. But the world has certainly changed a lot since 1948, when the Defender was first launched. So, how would Land Rover of today marry the best of times gone by, with the requirements of modern motorists? This was also an incredibly tough assignment as a journalist, saying anything about the old Defender is fraught with danger, it's like reviewing a sacred cow. But we set out to provide the point of view of myself, someone who is happy to admit that 4x4ing is not one of my finest skills. I hope you enjoy the video.
