After the new generation of Land Rover Defender came out, due to its excellent product strength and charm, it immediately became the best-selling luxury hardcore SUV in the world, but it also caused a shortage of cars in short supply, including the Defender 90 and 110, which have to wait for a long time waiting period. However, for the 8-seater Defender 130 X model, the domestic general agent said that the supply this year is sufficient, and interested buyers can place an order as early as possible and deliver the car on time.
To be honest, the real Defender 110 looks very big and strong, but now the body length of the Defender 130 has been extended to 5358mm (including the spare tire), making the whole car look like a minibus, and It is a very rough and strong minibus, but because of this, 2+3+3 three rows of seats can be placed in the cabin, allowing 8 passengers to enjoy the adventure journey together. However, the Defender 130 maintains the same 3022mm wheelbase as the Defender 110, and the rear suspension is extended by 34cm to create three rows of 8 seats and a wider rear compartment space. The length/width/height dimensions of the body are respectively 5358 /2105/1970 mm, and the maximum space of the luggage compartment can be expanded to 1876 liters.
In addition to the increase in body length, the appearance of the Defender 130 is no different from that of the Defender 110. It still has the aggressive and rough atmosphere that an off-road king should have, and also retains many classic design elements, such as the unique round headlights. , Barrel Side barrel-shaped waistline, high ground clearance, side-opening tailgate, external spare wheel and separate square taillights and other designs, continuing the classic style inheritance of the past. In addition, the test drive car also selected the "Advanced Black Appearance Package", including black front and rear lower fenders, bright black water tank guard trim, bright black hood DEFENDER words, bright black tailgate DEFENDER words and bright black Kits such as the hood trim, and optional 22-inch 5-spoke bright black aluminum rings and red brake calipers add personality and mystery to the hard-core appearance.
The interior layout of the Defender 130 is also the same as that of the Defender 110. The entire cabin is also lined with a large number of materials such as leather, chrome-plated metal, and magnesium alloy panels, showing a sense of refinement and luxury, especially the test drive car is decorated with sandalwood black interior. Design, and with the bronze-colored Windsor leather and top-level fabric seats, the delicate texture of the entire cabin is more obvious, and at the same time, it brings a more lively and vivid visual experience. The equipped parts are also dazzling, such as 12.3-inch full digital instrument panel (the sales car comes standard with a double-ring instrument with a central digital display screen), 11.4-inch Pivi Pro multimedia touch screen, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto connection function, Chinese Navigation, panoramic electric sunroof, four-zone constant temperature air-conditioning, dual front seats with 14-way electric adjustable seats (additional heating and ventilation function), Meridian 400W digital surround sound, 360-degree surround view video assistance/360-degree parking assistance system, etc., are luxurious and rich Not to mention the degree.
The seat arrangement in the cabin is theater-style design, with large windows, panoramic electric glass sunroof and fixed sunroof above the third row, which can bring a wide and bright vision space experience to the occupants in the car. In addition, the second row of seats adopts a 40:20:40 separation and folding design, and has a front/rear sliding function, allowing the third row of passengers to have more flexible entry and exit and knee space performance, and the actual knees Spaciousness is also sufficient. As for the third row of seats, it also adopts a 40:20:40 separation and folding design, and also has intimate configurations such as exclusive air-conditioning outlets, armrests on both sides, cup holders and storage nets, and even the second row of seats. It has a heating function, and it is not a problem for adults to ride, so it can be said that it is quite considerate for passengers in the second and third rows of the rear seat. As for the space capacity of the luggage compartment, it is the specialty of Defender 130. Even if all 8 people are fully seated, the rear luggage compartment still has a storage capacity of 290 liters; and if the third row of seats is tilted down, it can be expanded To 1015 liters, even after the second and third rows are fully dumped and flattened, a storage platform of up to 1876 liters can be created, which can fully meet the needs of car owners for loading and storage.
The imported Defender 130 X P400 sold in China adopts a single power specification, equipped with an Ingenium 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine, and a 48V integrated belt engine (BiSG) to form an MHEV light oil-electric hybrid power system, the gearbox is set by an 8-speed ZF manual transmission system, and is equipped with a permanent four-wheel drive system, a central differential, a two-speed afterburner gear shift function, and a Terrain Response all-terrain response control system. Technology, the maximum horsepower and torque output can reach 400hp, 56.1kgm, the original 0-100km/h acceleration time is 6.6 seconds, and the average fuel consumption is 8.9km/L.
Although acceleration is not the focus of the Defender 130, and the weight of the Defender 130 has reached 2528kg, the strong torque output of 400hp and 56.1kgm gives the car the confidence to have strong and abundant acceleration along the way, except for starting and re-accelerating. With the assistance of the 48V system, besides the brisk and immediate output response, the acceleration of the entire low-to-medium speed range, and even the re-acceleration of heavy steps at high speeds, all give the driver full and vigorous acceleration. Powerful, pushing the vehicle with a weight of more than 2.5 tons is calm and relaxed, and there is no phenomenon and feeling of heavy dragging or slow acceleration as expected, which is quite admirable.
The new Defender is equipped with a more rigid D7x aluminum monocoque chassis structure, and is equipped with front double A-arm, rear integrated multi-link suspension settings, and combined with ESA that can adjust the height of the car according to different speeds and road conditions After the electronic air suspension system, there is a clearer road feeling feedback, excellent road texture and ride comfort, and high-speed driving stability. It is completely different, this is the feeling after test driving 110 and 130 respectively. However, it was previously expected that the Defender 130 would affect the overall driving experience due to its larger body size? But in fact, there is no such thing as a slow pace. Although the body is really long, its wheelbase is also the same as that of the Defender 110, so the whole curve is not significantly affected by the extra section of the rear compartment The only change is that when entering and exiting a corner, there will be more obvious roll due to the long-travel suspension and heavier vehicle weight, but it will not affect the entire driving confidence. You only need to slow down and enter the corner. However, there will be no excessive head pushing phenomenon. It can only be said that hot driving on curves is not the strong point of Defender 130. Its real ability and ability are on the Off Road battlefield.
The Defender is a fusion of new generation and classic elements, whether it is 90, 110 or 130 models, not only has powerful off-road performance, but also luxurious interior layout and rich equipment, which can better respond to trends and take into account general daily life. The demand for common cars makes this car full of charm, especially for buyers who love Defender and expect to have a larger space and loading function, the 8-seater Defender 130 is definitely the salvation of desire.
