Land Rover introduces range-topping Defender Metropolis

Land Rover has taken the wraps off a range-topping Metropolis trim level for the Defender which is based on the HSE Lux but has received a longer list of standard equipment. Starting at 35,995 pounds, the vehicle benefits from a Meridian sound system, Windsor leather seats, panoramic roof and 19-inch alloy wheels. Also part of the package is a touchscreen satellite navigation system along with a reversing camera, upgraded carpets and a metallic exterior paint scheme. For the interior there’s also a glossy black trim to provide the feeling of a more upmarket cabin.

Under the hood of the Land Rover Defender Metropolis is the company’s well-known SD4 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine generating 188 bhp. Following the Defender’s demise next year, the model will be replaced with the already announced Discovery Sport which is characterized by Land Rover as being an “all-new premium compact SUV.”
