This will also be the first time the Defender will be for sale in India, completing Land Rover’s lineup of SUVs in the country.

Land Rover Defender prices and variants

Land Rover had announced prices for the Defender, earlier this year and had thrown open bookings for the SUV for Indian customers too. Prices for the 90 range start from Rs 69.99 – 81.30 lakh while the 110 is priced from Rs 76.57 – 86.27 lakh.

Both the 90 and 110 are available in five variants. Land Rover dealers around the country are set to deliver the first customer cars on the 15th at the time of launch itself, all of which will only be the 5-door 110. Deliveries for the Defender 90 will begin eventually as this particular body style has been delayed globally due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Land Rover Defender rivals

In terms of competition, the Defender 110 will go up directly against the likes of the Jeep Wrangler and the Mercedes-Benz G350, although the latter is a fair bit more expensive. The Defender 90 on the other hand will not have any direct competition in the Indian market.
