Arjun Kapoor has added another prized possession to his collection of cars. Recently, he was spotted driving his new SUV to his garage – the Land Rover Defender 110 first edition. 

Land Rover had brought the First Edition to India with two engine options, one with a 2.0-litre petrol engine in the form of the P300 AWD and the other with a 3.0-litre petrol engine in the form of the P400 AWD. It is still unclear which model Arjun has purchased for himself.

Land Rover India launched the all-new Defender in India last year in February. It was introduced for Rs 69.99 lakh for the base Defender 90 variant and Rs 87.10 lakh for the 110 variant. It came to India via the CBU route and was available across five variants – Base, S, SE, HSE and First Edition. 

The new SUV has minimal front and rear extensions improving the approach and deviation angles. On the inside, it holds features like a dash-mounted gear shifter to accommodate an optional central front jump seat.

Therefore, the Defender 110 offers 5+2 seating configurations, with a loadspace at the back of the second-row seats of up to 1,075 litres, and as much as 2,380 litres when the second row is folded. Durable rubberised flooring shrugs off the spills of daily experiences. A brush or wipe clean has been provided for the interiors. Apart from that, an optional full-length folding fabric roof provides an open-top feel. 

The newly engineered D7x architecture is based on a lightweight aluminium monocoque structure to create the most powerful edifice. During testing, prototype models have covered millions of kilometres across some of the severest environments, ranging from the 50-degree heat of a desert, -40 degree cold of the Arctic to altitudes of 10,000 ft in the Rocky Mountains.

The advanced petrol and cleaner diesel engines ensure the new Defender has the power, control and efficiency for any climate. Reportedly, the Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) powertrain will join the range next year. At launch, the petrol line-up included a four-cylinder P300 and a powerful six-cylinder P400, featuring efficient Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle technology. 

It also introduces a new Pivi Pro infotainment system. The next-generation touchscreen is automatic and user-friendly. Besides, the new Defender 100 first edition took the Software-Over-The-Air (SOTA) technology to a new level with 14 individual modules able of receiving remote updates.
