At the time of release, the options diesel are the motors D200 or D240 four-cylinders with technology of turbochargers twin sequential that they get a couple of 430 Nm. The model D200 has a consumption of 7.6 liters per 100 km and can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 10.3 seconds, while the D240 is equal to the efficiency of the 200 HP and goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 9,1 seconds. Both offer figures, low CO2 emissions, with 199 g/km (equivalent NEDC) approved.
In the options petrol , it is possible to choose between the engine P300 turbo four-cylinder and the MHEV P400 six-cylinder. The 300 HP uses a turbocharger, dual clutch. With this system goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 8,1 seconds and generates CO2 emissions of only 227 g/km
The engine MHEV, which allows the vehicle to look the tag ECHO , take advantage of the energy lost in deceleration and redistributes it to optimize the efficiency. The gasoline engine Ingenium six-cylinder in-line includes a turbocharger of double entry, conventional and supercharger electric 48-volt, as well as a generator of boot, built into the system instead of the alternator is conventional, to support the gasoline engine and let the time to a battery of lithium-ion 48-volt to store energy that is regenerated while the vehicle reduces the speed. This advanced commitment to technology is combined for the car to be 400 HP, go from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds, consumes 9,6 liters per 100 km and generates CO2 emissions of 220 g/km (equivalent NEDC).
All of the options incorporated to an automatic transmission ZF eight-speed, as well as a system of reducing to get low gears, something basic for towing or driving in off-road situations that require a greater control and strength.
Externally, the new Defender is very recognizable thanks to its distinctive silhouette. The designers have reinterpreted the identity of the Defender for the TWENTY-first century. Keeps the small windows, alpine on the roof , the tailgate side hinges and the spare wheel is installed in the outside, that has always characterized the original model.
The personality minimalist of Defender original is preserved in the interior, where the structural elements and the fasteners, which tend to be hidden, it is left to the view to increase the feeling of simplicity and functionality.

The functional architecture D7x Land Rover (the "x" is a nod to "extreme") is based on monocoque constructions of lightweight aluminum to create the body more rigid Land Rover made so far. It is three times more rigid than traditional designs of body-on-frame, serves as the basis for the air suspension or coil fully independent, and enables the incorporation of the motors electrified newest.
The new Defender has exceeded more than 62,000 tests prior to completing the phase of development, while the architecture of the body and chassis has been designed to withstand the test of extreme events and Land Rover, which consists in subjecting the vehicle to repeated impacts, and maintained, so that it goes beyond the usual standards for SUVS and passenger cars.
During development testing, the prototypes have travelled millions of kilometres in some of the harshest environments on the planet: from the 50 °C in the desert to -40 °C in the Arctic, passing through the 10,000 ft altitude of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.Benefits
