Want to see more of the new Defender? Course you do - here's Dan P to talk you round it...
So the new Defender is officially here. With due respect to the Porsche Taycan, it's the biggest debut of the 2019 Frankfurt show and - to Land Rover at any rate - one of the most important model introductions to occur this decade.
Consequently, the manufacturer has had plenty of time to warm to the task, and last month it invited PH along to get to grips with the new car in person. We sent Dan P to Eastnor Castle - this is what he saw...

4wd, low and high range gear box, locking centre diff , active rear diff, ability to control throttle sensitivity, multiple driving modes including one for wading, terrain camera and even tells you how deep the water you are in.
Given all that might be ok off road, depending on tyres.
( Think they have done a good job here, cannot have been easy)

Its the biggest UK car launch since the Mini in 2001, so I would argue against your statement of a decade.
Also, why couldn't you pin this onto the main article, so now you have multiple threads running.
