The Land Rover Defender has furthered solidified its well-rounded qualities whether on the city or off-road by garnering a 5-star safety rating from the European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP). The new Defender, which was unveiled at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, has already won 28 international awards since its comeback.
The Euro NCAP tested a right-hand drive Land Rover Defender 110 2.0 Diesel SE. It was awarded an 85 percent score in the adult and child occupant category, 79 percent score in the safety assist category, and 71 percent score in the vulnerable road users category.
