If under private car, then no speed warning. But you pay more in ARF and road tax.

Hi All,

Needed to revive this thread as I wanted to find out if it's at all possible that the 110 comes in auto transmission?

Based on all of those I've seen here - all are manual.

Additionally, I believe this can be configured into 7 seats right?

Any bros here own a 7 seat 110? Care to share what the space is like over in the last row?    

 

Thanks in advance!

the evoque and the defender should a more direct comparison, if need a Chelsea tractor the evoque is fine, unless u want to participate in Malaysia rain foorest bashing, I see that the defender is overkill in SG

Actually I can understand the desire for the Defender, performance aside, it is a BEAUTIFUL beast. I would've loved to go for the 90 myself, if only they have it in auto transmission.

 

Don't think they do... do they?

The Evoque is a gd looking ride. Just too polished for my taste. 

It's also a little small (interior wise) for me. The others like the Vogue is way too pricey for me ...

I've checked with the AD & unfortunately not. Apparently it's illegal to have these in auto transmissions which is such a waste.

I've no issues with manual but my other half is not able to drive it unfortunately.

 

I share the same sentiments you do. I do love the rugged good looks, especially if you're able to jack it up & include monstrous off road tyres with a front grilltowing winch.  

 

& since it's not available in auto (here anyway), I may have to look at the Wrangler Unlimited instead, though a major put off is the extremely high rd tax that has to be paid. Since you like the 90, why not also consider the Wrangler Rubicon/Sahara?

Too exp. The 90 is priced around $150k while the Sahara is at least $80k more than that.  [smallcry]

 

Another alternative of mine was the Honda Crossroad but seems no longer available new, and I am rather reluctant to go pre-owned.

Too pampered perhaps? (used to having loads of electronics + modern designs/functions?)

Hahaha I'm just kidding man - Hope you won't get offended.

 

This is back to basics, so hypothetically speaking - should have lower rates of electronics failure.

I think this is more of a lifestyle vehicle now, similar to those riding Harleys.

Please look at pic 7 of the photo section, the gear level indicates manual... unless wrong photo?

 You must understand that LR Defender 90 at $150k is to be registered as G plate... whereas Sahara is registered at S plate... an S plate defender 90, would cost similar to a discovery or slightly lesser, never enquire about it before. 

 

If you can stretch your budget nearer to discovery, you will find it rather comfy, auto gear box and true passenger vehicle.

 

LR Defender is not a comfortable vehicle to sit in as it's a truck designed in a few decades ago, and it's original height is at 2.15, many covered carpark cannot enter, clutch is super heavy...

Hi Deranged, I believe that S plate LR defender 110 should come like this http://www.sgcarmart...p?CarCode=11374 and G plate comes like this http://www.sgcarmart...=459425&DL=2010... G plate can only sit 5 including driver. I am driving a LR defender 90, the turning radius is terrible, don't know how will the 110 turn.

I did a lot of self-drive during my NSF days be it overseas excercise or driving locally. I already had my driver's license before I entered NS so my CSM sent me and a couple of guys to a one day off-road driving orientation on the land rover in Mandai camp. To facilitate when I went on overseas to self-drive. Btw my vocation is not driver. LoL...

 

It's great off-road. Robust and I would say adequate in terms of power. But on the tarmac it's pretty numb to drive. Vague steering, clutch and gear shifts. I learnt a lot about the car during that time. It has a few design flaws, one of which was the battery's location. The broken fuel gauge. I had to knock on the fuel tank with a spanner to guess how much fuel I have left or top it up often to prevent going on an empty tank. Something you would not want on any vehicle that's running on diesel.

 

It's funny the listings never show any of the pics on the reach bench seats. You have to sit upright in front and the rear is not comfy as it's bouncy plus passengers sit sideways although can squeeze many ppl. I like the 3 door version more. The 5 door is just too long for our roads and carparks.

 

Conclusion it's just too ex to buy one here. It has a spartan interior with little or no comfort. It's only good driving it off-road and you won't get stuck. Nobody would want to drive it in auto. Coz this is one car that you will learn to use the center differential on different off-road conditions. No clever computer to help you. If you want an auto, get a Honda CRV. Not to insult anyone but really no point.

Oops, never thought about that; G vs S.

 

That would put the Defender 90 out of my comfort zone. I would prob be able to stretch my budget to that of a Freelander 2 or maybe an Evoque, anything more than that will take a few more green days on the Market for me liao.  [:p]

 

Thanks for the heads up bro!  [thumbsup] [thumbsup] [thumbsup]
