    Looks like a range rover. Would very much look the part in British Racing green towing queenies horse box around.

    I like the new Defender but I don't see the point of this 130?

    The current 110 boot is tiny in comparison to its predessesor and a discovery4 for that matter. I suspect the Defender 130 will catch the eye of many a discovery 4 owner looking to upgrade.

    - 3rd row in 110 is pretty tiny and claustrophobic.
    - space behind the 3rd row when in use is tiny.
    Well, preaching to the choir I suspect...

    What I would have liked on the 130 is for the spare wheel to be under body, (fortuner/Everest/LC200 style) to reduce the sheer length of the thing.

    So then there's no point to the 110 then?

    The 130 IS the Disco 4 replacement. The D5 is something else.

    Hmm - discos have always had around 100inch wheel base, which makes them very good off road. Not as bouncy as a 90 and not as long as a 110.

    The Disco 1 was an absolute beast off-road, and I really think that 100inch wheelbase is the magic number. So 130 will be very nice, and I have been with a LR club where 130 defenders were doing very serious off road stuff, but that breakover angle will always catch them out in the end.

    Would be interesting to see it next to a full fat range rover as they look very similar dimensionally?

    Also think the 130 will be much less fun in a typical SA parking bay, than the smaller ones or any of the previous Discos? I think the amount of packing space in the rear of a disco was a serious differentiator, especially when compared with sloping rear windows like Touregs/CAyenne,X6 etc. Here the D1 was not great, although even it could stash a huge amount due to the high roof. The D2 had a longer overhang, but significantly larger rear cargo area. Departing from that design may not have been wise?
