It’s finally here! The all-new 2020 Land Rover Defender. And we've got our hands on a lovely Pangea Green 110, before the smaller Defender 90 comes along next year. But being such an iconic off-roader, we couldn’t just do a humdrum review. So Top Gear Magazine’s Jack Rix decided to go on an adventure - across Namibia - for a test drive to remember.

  • Did I miss something?? You said at the beginning you were going to be testing it to it’s limits? You took it to Namibia to drive a few dirt tracks, what a con

  • If going to come test drive a car in my country don’t come with false information “We managed to find pretty much the only tarmac road in whole of Namibia” which is a cock and bull story probably the only tarmac road in the Opuwo region you were driving in . Please do your research before you go on camera say falsehoods .

  • This is not a review. It shows and sounds more like an ad. How sad and deeply unfortunate for what Top Gear once was.

  • Had 1 90 year 98 and 9 other 110 s from 98 - 14, charming vehicles but to much problems even from new! But i loved them ! I sold my 14 after 2 years and got the same as I bought it for with 30 000 km on it! Bought a hilux 16 as i i use today ,the defender love affair ended. Hilux is a much better truck for my needs,forrestry and gardening! Call it dull compared to the old charming version of defender but better in all ways for work.its a very safe well built vehicle and reliability is ofcause top notch! The new version of defender here is probably a capable vehicle off road,but again not a vehicle for work,a pure luxury car for someone who wants something different and ofcause has money! I have traveled in africa,middle east,Australia and japanese trucks owns the market for a reason , a harsh invirement needs a harsh vehicle with not to many gizmos!

  • Is that an off-roader? I don’t think so.And the tires,no good off-road,maybe in sand?This is an asphalt hugger with very limited ground clearance and more limited suspension travel with the car set in its highest level,it has no suspension travel so don’t give me that salesmanship BS.

  • It's the Discovery all over again. What was the point? Land Rover just doesn't understand the Defender's market at all. Just make a tough, reliable, capable and maintainable off-roader at a sensible price. This new Defender is too techy. It is laughable to be demonstrating it in Africa, when it is far too fiddly and tech-sensitive for proper off-road use in Africa. Top Gear was taken in by the nice jolly to Namibia and didn't do a proper review at all. Disappointed.

  • yea.. with reliability of LR for sure entire world is open... Sadly no, but i like this car very much. It looks great and has interesting features. But also some fake covers which look stupid on that kind of a strudny car. It depends on a version i think, cause i don’t saw them on this vid. I hope with this new model come new kind of realibility cause markest need LR and that type of car especially in downsized EU.

  • I had to to playback and and make sure you actually said " I DONT REALLY GET OFF ROADING" Are your freaking serious? Should you really be reviewing this car? I really miss the old defender, and I think Landrover really cocked this one up, 'they had one job!' Looks like we will all be buying the Grenadier..Oh like most of the folks that have commented - I too really miss the old top gear..

    Kevin JohnsonKevin JohnsonMåned siden
  • Looks a good motor but its not a defender, this isn't going to appeal to the agricultural and military market that has been landrovers bread and butter, this is aimed at the same folk who buy discoverys who will probably opt for the disco
