The Defender features a full-size spare placed on the tailgate, as befitting its full-blooded 4x4 purpose; after all, in the wild, you can't rely on space-savers or run-flats to get you home after a puncture. Not only do you have ample ground clearance to go rock crawling with your mates in this true off roader, but the air suspension also lowers the car for easy access. When you have to drag yourself into the Defender's cabin, you realise how high it sits off the ground. Even in Access Mode, which lowers the air suspension, it's a tough climb.
  You're rewarded to a fantastic balcony view once you've climbed into the driver's seat. A large glass area, a low window line, and upright A-pillars that don't obscure your vision provide excellent all-around visibility. The cabin itself is a fantastic place to be, with a unique blend of rusticity and comfort. The car's inherent ruggedness is reflected in the rubberised surfaces throughout, the exposed screw heads on the door panels, and the massive air vents, yet the double- stitched leather trim and features like the aluminium and wood garnishes exude luxury.
The 2.3-tonne Defender is propelled by a 300hp 2.0-litre turbo- petrol engine. The P300 Defender doesn't take off like a rocket, but it's no slouch either, and it's remarkably light on its feet for a vehicle this size. Yes, there is some turbo lag and the low-end response isn't very snappy, but the power delivery has a great linearity to it that makes for a pleasant drive.
 Most highway duties require a 0-100kph time of 8.96 seconds and a 40-100kph time of 6.61 seconds. The P300, on the other hand, works well as a comfortable highway cruiser, thanks to the 8-speed ZF automatic transmission, which keeps you in the right gear at the right moment.
