No Surprise as Land Rover Defender Aces Euro NCAP Test


The award-winning New Land Rover Defender has earned another five-star review, this time from the safety experts at Euro NCAP. Land Rover’s most capable and durable model ever has been awarded the maximum five-star rating in the latest round of test results.

The Defender family combines state-of-the-art safety features with an ultra-stiff aluminum-intensive body construction engineered to cope with rugged landscapes and provide excellent safety credentials. It scored 85 percent for Adult and Child Occupant protection, 79 percent for Safety Assist and achieved a 71 percent score for Vulnerable Road Users on its way to a five-star overall rating.

Nick Rogers, Executive Director, Product Engineering, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “From the moment we started creating the New Defender, we were obsessed with functional safety and the protection of both the occupants and other road users. We set out to make a vehicle that is the most capable and durable Land Rover ever made, with safety features that truly enhance the driver’s experience. It’s an incredible honor to receive this recognition from Euro NCAP who have endorsed our New Defender with their five-star rating.”

Euro NCAP tested a New Defender 110, but the tough 4x4 family also includes the compact Defender 90.

Following its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2019, Land Rover has experienced unprecedented demand for the new 4x4. This has been matched with critical acclaim, the new Defender has already won 28 international awards.
