All-new Land Rover Defender makes its debut

After years of concepts, rumours, teaser images and countless leaks, Land Rover has at last revealed the all-new Defender.
 

Fiat has updated the 500L range, revealing three trim levels – Urban, Cross and Wagon – all featuring updated technology, a refreshed look and greater customisation options.

The five-seat Urban variant is the standard model, while the Cross replaces the Trekking as the more adventurous model, featuring added ground clearance and a traction control system. Wagon is the seven-seat model, replacing the MPW.

A number of new safety features have been added, such as autonomous emergency braking, rear parking camera and a child monitoring mirror, which allows the driver to keep an eye on the rear seat.

The revised interior features a new dashboard, a restyled multi-functional steering wheel and TFT colour digital display, as well as a new central armrest and a redesigned gear lever, which is placed higher than before for improved usability.

   

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also integrated with the touchscreen infotainment system, which also boasts Bluetooth connectivity, voice recognition and built-in satnav.

For Urban and Cross models, boot space stands at 455 litres, while storage in the Wagon extends to 493 litres with the two additional rear seats folded. Storage space increases to 1,480 litres with the rear seats folded in Urban and Cross trims, and 1,509 in Wagon trim.

Exterior design revisions are light across the range. The front bumper and grille have been redesigned and LED daytime running lights have been added, along with new fog and reversing lights.

For those looking to personalise their vehicle, there are up to 36 colour combinations possible, available in pastel or metallic colours with three roof styles to choose from.

Prices for the Fiat 500L range will start from £16,195, and first deliveries will take place in September.
