The all-new 2023 Land Rover Defender 130, a three-row SUV, was unveiled by Land Rover. It has room for up to 8 people inside. This was accomplished by expanding the length of the new 130 by 13.4 inches over the Defender 110. The 130 is powered by two mild hybrid 3.0 litre 6 cylinder engines, with no option for a V8.
Land Rover Defender 130 Exterior
The Sedona red exterior paint finish with Narvik black roof rails is a unique exclusive to the 130. An extended bright pack with silver-painted lower finishes and bright silver 20-inch wheels are offered as an option. In terms of length, the Land Rover’s body has been stretched by 340mm, allowing for an additional seating row to be added inside.
Land Rover Defender 130 Interior
Stepping inside, the Land Rover 130 is a three-row SUV that can seat up to eight people. Not only that, but the cabin is well-built and equipped with cutting-edge technology. There are a variety of new interior trim options available for the 130. The chrome air vents, seat switches, walnut veneer, and tan leather seats are all examples of this. All 130 model levels come with a standard 11.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
Thanks to the second sunroof accessible at the back end of the 130, lighting and airing in the cabin are nicely taken care of. Heated seats, armrests, storage compartments, and USB C connections are all standard features. A four-zone air conditioning system is available as an option. With the back seats folded, the defender 130 has a load capacity of 2516 litres, making it the only SUV with more than 7 occupants.
Engine, power and transmission
There are two six-cylinder engines available for the Land Rover 130. The V8 engine, as well as the turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engines that power the 90 and 110, are not available for the 130. Land Rover has a new p300 powertrain for the 130 model, which consists of a 3.0 litre 6 cylinder engine that produces 296 horsepower and 347-pound feet of torque.
The second drivetrain is a p400 version of the same 3.0 engine, which produces 395 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. The two 6-cylinder engine options of the 2023 Land Rover Defender 130 are assisted by a 48-volt hybrid powertrain. The new 130 uses an eight-speed automatic transmission that comes standard on all 130 models to drive all four wheels.
Infotainment and connectivity
Using Land Rover’s latest generation Pi vi pro software, an 11.4-inch curved infotainment touchscreen is available.
