Discovery 2 that’s as tough as a Defender


Seen the new images of the next-generation Defender circulating the web today? It’s big news (at last!) but JLR’s latest won’t be to everyone’s taste. This month we’re celebrating the original ‘Best 4x4 By Far’ with a beautiful 200Tdi Defender 90 restoration that keeps things simple. ‘It’s probably the best I’ve driven,’ reckons our Mark Saville, and you can’t get much higher praise than that.
