Land Rover Reveals Two New Defender Variants Ahead of Geneva

Land Rover has announced that it will be bringing two new Defender variants to early March’s Geneva motor show. As we’ve come to expect, these kinds of special versions/packs don’t alter the vehicle in any dramatically significant way, concentrating just on changing its appearance (and perceived level of luxury, in this case, as they are only offered on cars of already high XS specification).

The new option packs are called Black Pack and Silver Pack and both adjust the palette of color shades around the car to match the name.

The former “features a Santorini black finish, which is applied to the roof, grille, grille surround, headlamp surrounds, wheel arches, ‘Defender’ bonnet script and interior facia. Privacy glass and ebony Alston headliner lend the vehicle added visual drama.

The Black Pack will be available with two wheel variations – a gloss black Sawtooth alloy wheel and a new gloss black heavy duty wheel.” The latter swaps out some of the black trim for silver (including the roof) and it too features two different color schemes for the rims.

Additionally, both come with ABS and stability control as standard, if you purchase them in the UK or other European countries. It is required by law, otherwise they would not be allowed to sell it anymore.
