The 2015 Land Rover Defender Adventure

The Adventure limited edition of Land Rover Defender is one of the UK’s oldest 4x4s. Does it still appeal to the mass or not? Let’s find out…

What is it?

When looking at the 2015 Land Rover Defender Adventure, powered by 2.2-litre diesel engine, the question that instantly pops into everyone’s head is ‘what is it’? A fashion statement, a farming tool, or a faithful companion? The answer will vary depending on who you ask.

Over the past 67 years, Land Rover has built over two million of them which clearly depicts how popular it has been through all these years. It is also one of those three lucky new limited editions of Land Rover’s oldest model that has been introduced with full underbody protection. There are only 600 examples produced of this limited edition.

What are these three editions?

Land Rover has introduced three limited editions of its famous 4×4 vehicles, dubbed the Celebration series. Defender’s legendary ruggedness can clearly be seen in the Adventure Edition which features the retro design cues in a glorious manner.

The Heritage Edition and for those who demand every luxury in their vehicle, Autobiography edition is just the perfect choice.

What’s it like?

An exceptional and distinctively rewarding experience. The feeling you get when you drive around in an Adventure Edition Defender is like if you imagine yourself being back at school, armed with the most sought-after and the coolest toy that year. When it is loaded with all the off-road equipment, that’s what makes it the ultimate toy for boys.

The limited edition of this seven-seat, 110 station wagon guise has been set apart with decals, diamond-turned alloys, and the cool two-tone paint. To get into the driver’s seat, an athletic swing as is required as it towers over all other cars.

What kind of engine does it have?

The Land Rover Defender 110 Station Wagon Adventure Edition is powered by a 2.2-litre 4-cylinder diesel engine that makes 118bhp and 266 lb-ft of torque. It is mated with a six-speed manual gearbox and the top speed is 90mph.

The 0-60mph sprint takes 14.7 seconds and it returns 25.5mpg of combined fuel economy with 295g/km of CO2 emissions. The price has been set to £43,495.

Should you buy one?

Only if you have deep pockets – as the yearly tax bill is really big, fuel economy is poor, and the tyres also cost a lot to replace – or if it’s an emotional buy or if you are planning an expedition to the middle of nowhere. If anyone of these cases is true, then you better hurry as only 600 examples will be made.
