GREAT news for LCV specialist leasing brokers – the return of the Defender commercial in 90 and 110 Hard Top versions has been confirmed.
The vehicles will be available to order later this year, with indicative prices from £35,500 + VAT.
Land Rover says its new Hard Top model will blend 3,500kg towing capacity with optional Advanced Tow Assist technology to make towing trailers easy and simple.
The Hard Top name dates back to 1950, when the introduction of demountable Hard Tops gave early Series Land Rovers added security and protection from the elements. The new Defender Hard Top shares the same silhouette even if the Hard Top is no longer demanountable.
Michael van der Sande, managing director of Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, said:
We will maximise the functionality and usability of New Defender’s cargo area, with tough materials and clever storage solutions.
