Longer Land Rover Defender 130 teased will have 8 seats

What’s up

Land Rover releases a longer version of the Defender.

Why it matters

It will offer eight seats, more than any competitor.

The Land Rover Defender range expands on May 31 with the unveiling of the Defender 130, a longer variant of the SUV seating eight in total.

While the existing four-door Defender 110 is available with a third row of seats, the $2,100 folding setup only seats two and is cramped for adults, not to mention taking up a lot of cargo space when installed. The 130 layout will have three-seat bench seats in the second and third rows for a total of eight seats, although we’re betting a seven-seat layout can also be offered.

Unlike other extended SUVs, the extra length will appear to be behind the rear axle rather than in the wheelbase, giving the Defender 130 awkward proportions with a large rear overhang not dissimilar to the one recently unveiled Jeep Grand Wagoneer L. That should at least make the third row really roomy. Otherwise, the Defender 130 should look the same as the other Defender models, except perhaps for a new badge and other trim options.

No further details were given, but the Defender 130 will likely not be offered with the car’s base four-cylinder engine, instead sporting the mild-hybrid inline-6 ​​turbocharger as standard. The fantastic supercharged V8 will most likely also be optional. Expect the Defender 130 to carry around a $5,000 premium over an equivalent 110.
