It has been a year since the Land Rover Defender re-entered the country. And now, Land Rover Philippines is celebrating the SUV’s 200th unit release.

The 200th unit release is further solidified as the PH-spec all-new Defender is hailed as the leader in regional sales. Land Rover Philippines President Chris Ward credited the model’s success to the market’s fondness for the Land Rover and for everything adventure.

“Launching the vehicle head-on with the COVID-19 situation, we were unsure of how the Defender line would initially take off. Not surprisingly, it was very well received in the Philippines market. The amount of support of its enthusiasts for the brand was tremendous,” said Land Rover Philippines President Chris Ward.

Accomplished amid the global health crisis

Coming with a boxy-type body, the Land Rover Defender flaunts an off-road appearance that enriches that brand’s ‘spirit of adventure’ characteristic. Thanks to the introduction of the Defender 90, Filipino car buyers now have the option to choose which Defender better suits their lifestyle.

Despite its rugged nature, the Land Rover Defender is still integrated with luxury which is more prominent in the cabin. It can be equipped with Windsor leather seats, 14-way heated and cooled electric front seats, and a 10-inch Pivi Pro infotainment system with 6-speaker Meridian Sound System plus subwoofer.
