Land Rover has announced the new 2013 Defender. It will feature a higher level of specification, three additional options and a choice of two new exterior body colours, Barolo Black and Havana.

Options of a new premium seat design, upgraded in-car entertainment and a choice of four new contrast roof colours are now available to Defender customers.

Substantial improvements were made to the specification last year, including the introduction of the EU5 2.2-litre diesel engine, ventilated discs and detail improvements to the three speed-limiting options were also added for fleet users wanting to benefit from effective control of fuel costs. The 2.2-litre diesel engine produces 122HP at 3,500rpm and torque of 360Nm at 2,000rpm, giving a 0-60mph time of 14.7 seconds and a top speed of 90mph.

"The appeal of the Land Rover Defender has been strengthened with the opportunity for customers to enhance their driving comfort and also to personalise their vehicle with a range of contrast roof colours. Underpinned by the powerful 2.2-litre diesel engine and its go anywhere capability, the iconic Defender retains the rugged appeal that it's always been famous for but now with even greater customer choice," commented John Edwards, Land Rover Global Brand Director.

The 2013 Land Rover Defender hits the market priced at just £22,350.
