The Land Rover Defender 90 is a short wheelbase version of the Defender 110, offering a 2-door and compact body configuration. New to the PH-spec Defender this year is the addition of a diesel powertrain which enhances the off-road capabilities of the model as it packs more torque at low RPM.

Exterior

Design-wise, the new Land Rover Defender 90 bears the same exterior details as the Defender 110, just shorter in length. It still comes with the same boxy-style body design, snazzy-looking round daytime running lights (DRLs) that give the model its strong off-road look upfront, and blacked-out fender flares and side sills.

Despite the newly-arrived model’s shorter wheelbase rated at 435mm as compared to the long-wheelbase version, it still offers similar head and legroom spaces. However, the Defender 110 provides more cargo space which can be installed with third-row seats as an option.
