The carmaker has been very discreet in launching the diesel models in India.
Land Rover has silently launched the 2021 Defender 90 diesel with a price tag that starts from Rs. 94.36 lakhs (ex-showroom) for the base SE variant.
The 2021 Defender 110 diesel has also been launched and the asking price for that model begins at Rs. 97.03 lakhs (ex-showroom). Both Defender 90 and 110 models are offered in 4 trim levels – SE, HSE, X-Dynamic HSE and X.
Powered by a 3.0-litre diesel engine that makes a maximum of 300 PS at 4000 RPM and 650 Nm of peak torque from 1500-2500 RPM, the cars come with an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive.
While top speed for both Defender 90 and 100 models is 191 km/hr, the 3-door variant can do the 0-100 km/hr sprint in 6.7 seconds, while the 110 model takes 7 seconds.
Although the 2021 Land Rover Defender 90 diesel price is far higher than the corresponding petrol variant, likewise for the 110, the carmaker says the oil burner models do come with their own advantages.
