Land Rover Owner international magazine, April 2022 issue


LRO magazine April 2022

by Theo Ford-Sagers |

Can you customise the new Defender? It’s been around for two years now, so what kit is available, and what different interpretations are new owners coming up with? Our April issue tackles this emerging topic.
