Test drove another Defender.

This time it was a P300 (I4 turbo) vs the P400 I test drove earlier. This one is in the colour I want and I have to say, in person the blue is nice and subtle.

As shown, Defender S with 19" wheels.

I also got to play with some of the gadgets this time around so here is what the off road camera looks like (obviously not off road because well it’s a test drive):


This camera feature is great if you don’t have a spotter, especially on a technical rock course.

Thoughts on the P300 vs P400:
I was honestly worried that the I4 would be too slow, but it’s not in terms of your average SUV. It’s a 100 hp less than the I6 but it’s still putting out 300 hp so if you need to get going it can do that, it’s just not an SVR or Trackhawk but that’s not it’s purpose. It also has the bonus of the standard 18 inch wheels vs 20 on the I6 which is way better IMHO because you have real choices for AT/MT tires at 18 inches. If this one I test drove had the rear locking diff I’d probably be in a lot of trouble with my wife right now...
