There are two powertrains to choose from - the P300 4-cylinder Petrol and the P400 6-cylinder MHEV
Jaguar Land Rover Malaysia today officially launched the all-new 2022 Land Rover Defender 90, which is essentially the three-door short-wheelbase version of the new Defender.
As seen with the Defender 110, there are two ingenium engines to choose from, which are the P300 4-cylinder Petrol or the P400 6-cylinder MHEV Petrol.
The three-door short-wheelbase Defender 90 has a maximum wading depth of 900mm and is also equipped with a twin-speed transfer box, which provides a boost of speed and control to power through challenging conditions such as steep inclines and declines, unpredictable terrain and off-road driving.
In addition, Electronic Air Suspension ensures a comfortable driving experience, with an adjustable height available to suit driving purposes.
This includes an access height of 40mm below normal ride height, to an extended height of up to 75mm. Meanwhile, for extreme off-road conditions and unsteady surfaces, a further extended ride height of 70mm is also available.
Complementing this, the Adaptive Dynamics feature allows drivers to fine-tune their driving characteristics. With adaptive dampers evaluating bodily movements up to 500 times per second, Adaptive Dynamics utilises the data to optimise control and comfort instantaneously for the driver.
Land Rover’s next-generation Electronic Vehicle Architecture, dubbed EVA 2.0, underpins the digital revolution, supporting Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) updates that ensure the Defender 90 will get better with age and enable Land Rover’s fast and intuitive new Pivi Pro infotainment system.
EVA 2.0 consists of a state-of-the-art forward-facing digital camera, advanced ultrasonic sensors and a powerful onboard network which supports a comprehensive suite of driver assistance technologies.
This includes a 3D Surround Camera that provides 360-degree visibility on surrounding areas, off and on-road, for maximum security.
The advanced camera system provides enhanced augmented on-screen visualisation when using Wade Sensing and Land Rover’s ClearSight Ground View transparent bonnet technology, to improve visibility.
Available in five colours, the new model comes with 170 individual accessories, the largest range ever produced for a Land Rover, ensuring that no two Defender vehicles will be the same.
The accessories include the innovative Exterior Side-Mounted Gear Carrier that offers extra space, as well as a new Above and Beyond Collection of outdoor performance equipment and apparel, complementing the driver’s adventures with the Defender 90.
Priced from RM838,800 and RM1,098,800 for P300 and P400 MHEV respectively (with 10% SST and excluding Road Tax, Registration and Insurance), the new Defender 90 comes with a Land Rover Care programme which includes a five-year warranty, five years’ free service and three years’ roadside assistance.
