Bandar Seri Begawan, 5 March 2023 — Alongside the critically acclaimed Defender 90 and Defender 110, the Defender 130 adds another dimension to the all-conquering family of all-terrain vehicles, with adventuring opportunities for up to eight adults across three rows of full-size seating.
Indera Motors Sdn Bhd unveiled the New Defender 130 in Sedona Red at an exclusive private preview at the Land Rover Showroom yesterday, 4 March 2023. The preview was attended by General Manager Mr. Alfred Yong Foh Sen, managers, invited guests and members of the press.
A host of exterior and interior design enhancements and technologies distinguish New Defender 130, uniquely balancing comfort with customary Defender durability and capability.
“Defender is a vehicle loved by many. It is distinctive, capable and durable, with a rich history that can be traced to the start of Land Rover,” said General Manager Mr Alfred Yong in his welcoming remarks, “New Defender 130 brings a new dimension of capability to our most durable and rugged family of vehicles. Its spacious interior welcomes and transports up to eight people in supreme comfort, enabling unparalleled adventuring opportunities for families, with unique design signatures to create a distinct New Defender experience.”
Defender 130 has its own colour palette, with a new, exclusive Sedona Red option ensuring the 130 stands out in the line-up.
The interior design features new colour and material options, providing an amplified all-terrain experience. The latest connected technologies and chassis systems – including a new, larger 11.4-inch Pivi Pro touchscreen, standard Electronic Air Suspension and Cabin Air Purification Plus – provide the ultimate support and comfort for modern off-road excursions.
Defender’s iconic silhouette has been elegantly extended by 340mm at the rear to provide enhanced interior space across all three rows, without compromising its unparalleled all-terrain capabilities.
Defender 130 is available with a powerful and efficient choice of electrified powertrains, including the P300 and P400 mild-hybrid Ingenium six-cylinder petrols, and the D250 and D300 Ingenium six-cylinder diesels.
Mild-Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) technology underpins Land Rover’s six-cylinder Ingenium powertrains, providing seamless responses as well as enhanced fuel economy.
The New Defender 130 is available in SE, HSE, X-Dynamic and X specifications, and is available for viewing and customisation at the Land Rover Showroom in Beribi until 11 March 2023.
