Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Land Rover Defender is a return to the U.S. for the boxy off-roader that helped start it all. This time with far more creature comforts.

Pros
Back in the USA
Boxy profile
Upgraded interior
Legendary capability
Two body styles

Cons
Turbo-4 for the big Defender 110? Pricey off-roader Odd looks at the rear Interior comfort is a question
Pricey off-roader

Fully redesigned after many decades.Much more comfort and refinement.Lots of customization options.Part of the second Defender generation introduced for 2020.

Pros
Strong off-road capabilities
Numerous customization options
High-tech safety and off-road features

Cons
Not as tough-looking as the original

By:

Land Rover reopens the book on one of its most iconic nameplates with the all-new 2020 Defender. Its boxy shape and retro details combine with design language found on modern Land Rovers to create an appearance that's both sophisticated and nostalgic. While the 2020 Defender looks like an ordinary crossover, it has serious off-road capabilities and rugged equipment that help it live up to its go-anywhere heritage.

Wi-Fi hotspot now standard,no other significant changes for 2021.

Pros
Tremendously powerful six-cylinder engine
Grip and handling are excellent
Sleeker styling than the related X3 M

Cons
Excessively stiff ride
Rear headroom is a bit tight
Sloping roofline compromises cargo space and visibility

By: 
edmunds.com

Like several other BMWs, the X4 M gains Android Auto and SiriusXM satellite radio as standard features for the 2021 model year. Otherwise, the flashy fastback SUV remains unchanged.

Pros
Abundance of horsepower,
impressively quick acceleration,
deft handling.

Cons
Stiff suspension can be harsh over bumps,
not as practical as X3 M,
polarizing rear styling.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Pros
Balanced power delivery
Impressive grip and balance
Fun on tap in 4WD Sport setting
Transmission refinement

Cons
Punishing ride
Only subtly different next to regular X4
Not as pointed as a full-fledged M4
