defender 130 is the longest version of Land Rover’s iconic SUV. It extends the body by 13.3 inches, giving it an overall length of 210.9 inches.

Do defenders need to fast?

This adds 13.6 inches of rear legroom — more than the 110’s 10.8-inch increase — and a second row that can seat eight people in two-plus-three seating. That extra space makes the defender 130 more of a family-friendly model, too.

The 130 also boasts more cargo room, though it can’t haul as much cargo as the 110. That’s mainly due to the lack of a flat load floor and an in-the-way ridge that juts out from the back of the third row when it’s folded up.

Aside from the additional space, the 130 also offers more interior comforts than the shorter versions of the Defender. For starters, the defender 130’s front seats are heated and ventilated. There’s also a refrigerator in the center console, an 11.4-inch touchscreen display and an optional panoramic moonroof with a separate sunroof above the third row.

It also offers a more upscale driving experience than its smaller sibling, and the 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine it employs makes ample power. Interestingly, the defender 130 is the only Defender model to offer air suspension as a standard feature.

Regardless of which powertrain you choose, the Defender 130 can tow up to 8,200 pounds. It also comes with a range of safety features, like blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert.
