Harry's Garage: 2024 Defender 130 Outbound, 1400 mile trip 4-up on a family French skiing holiday

Recommended Posts

I thought this a slightly different take on a newly introduced variant of the 'new Defender' family.

Notable points:
Worse than expected fuel consumption from the 300 diesel engine.
Better than expected luggage capacity, especially considering skis were carried internally.

I''m not in the market for any of the New Defender range (cost & size) so cannot comment more.

I did see that, the fuel consumption was a surprise, however it may be in part down to a brand new very tight engine, modern stuff is such fine tolerance it takes a while for things to bed in. 

Granted it may not be as good as the sport long term, but to be so much worse I can't see it being just because it is a different shape.

50mpg? l've got a 2022 90 with the D250 (3.0 diesel) and the best l can get on a run is 40mpg.

Round town, driving between customers l am averaging 25mpg although if l drive really carefully l can get 28.
