Personal experiences and adventures are part of the Land Rover landscape and new Defender maintains this rich heritage, allowing customers to personalise their vehicle to fit their lives with more choice than ever before.
The most accessorised and personalised Land Rover ever produced will be available in 90 and 110 body designs and Defender, S, SE, HSE and Defender X trim levels, while customers can choose from a range of four Accessory Packs to give the rugged new 4x4 a unique character. A choice of 170 individual accessories means the chances of finding two identical Defenders is remote while Land Rover’s new Above and Beyond Collection of outdoor performance apparel and equipment delivers the same durability and toughness as new Defender.
The full range of official accessories is available individually, but four Accessory Packs help customers to tailor new Defender to suit their lifestyle:
Conquer unmapped extremes with a Raised Air Intake, lightweight 26kg Expedition Roof Rack* and an Exterior Side-mounted Gear Carrier. Front and Rear Classic Mud Flaps, Wheel Arch Protection and a Spare Wheel Cover provide extra ruggedness while a Matte Black bonnet decal, featuring 90 or 110 cut-out detailing, completes the Explorer Pack’s head-turning appearance.
Customers can also upgrade the Explorer Pack with Fixed Side Steps and a Deployable Roof Ladder, while the Front Expedition Protection System adds a Front Undershield and ‘A’-Frame Protection Bar with raised corners to improve the front approach angle.
A Portable Rinse System with a 6.5-litre pressurised water reservoir, boot-mounted Integrated Air Compressor and Exterior Side-mounted Gear Carrier equip new Defender for time spent in the wilds. Protection is enhanced by Front and Rear Mud Flaps, a Spare Wheel Cover and a Bright Rear Scuff Plate, to guard the rear bumper against scrapes and scratches when loading and unloading, while a practical 20-litre Seat Backpack, which you can take with you when you leave the vehicle, completes the interior.
Designed for time spent off the beaten track, the Country Pack features rugged Wheel Arch Protection, a Bright Rear Scuff Plate to protect the top of the rear bumper and Front and Rear Classic Mud Flaps. A Portable Rinse System and Full-Height Loadspace Partition equip the interior for everyday adventures.
To stand out in the concrete jungle, the Urban Pack adds a Bright Rear Scuff Plate, Spare Wheel Cover and Bright Metal Pedals add to the robust interior. Customers can then opt for a range of alloy wheel upgrades including a distinctive 22-inch five-spoke design.
A selection of Side Tubes and both Fixed or Deployable Side Steps are available across all four Accessory Packs alongside a full range of durable deep-sided rubber mats to protect the interior.
The comprehensive range of accessories can also be purchased separately including the innovative Exterior Side-mounted Gear Carrier, which aligns with the Defender’s distinctive floating pillars** and is perfect for holding mucky equipment. The lockable stowage pod has been aerodynamically tested to minimise wind noise and withstand extreme conditions and its 24-litre capacity can support up to 17kg, making it perfect for storing muddy boots or soggy wetsuits, without soiling the interior.
If the Gear Carrier isn’t fitted, new Defender’s floating pillars also provide a home for the Deployable Roof Ladder, which folds down from its locked position to allow easy access to items being carried on the roof. With a choice of Aqua Sports Carriers, Roof Rails and Roof Racks, customers will be able to make full use of new Defender’s impressive 168kg*** maximum dynamic roof load.
For overnight camping trips and overland adventures, a Rooftop Tent makes full use of new Defender’s maximum static roof load of 300kg. Its one-click operating mechanism is easy-to-use and, when fitted with the Deployable Roof Ladder and Expedition Roof Rack, new Defender doubles as all-terrain accommodation for remote camping trips.
The Portable Rinse System includes a 6.5-litre reservoir, hose and shower attachment and can be used to clean everything from dirty kit to filthy dogs and is also available as part of Land Rover’s existing Pet Packs. The user-friendly and practical list of standalone accessories also includes an Inflatable Waterproof Awning and a range of towing systems.
To ensure the toughest and most capable member of the Land Rover family inspires complete confidence in the most inhospitable environments on earth, a Remote Control Electric Winch provides complete assurance even when miles from home****. Packaged neatly within the front bumper, its integrated design generates a maximum force of 4,536kg, holds 40m of synthetic rope and can be wirelessly operated up to 45m away for the ultimate convenience and safety off-road.
Raised Air Intakes are a vital addition in dusty locations, protecting the engine by delivering cleaner air from their elevated position, and the Defender is available with a close-fitting semi-integrated design that fits neatly onto the side-mounted engine air intake in the front fender, to preserve performance in dusty environments.

Above and Beyond Collection
The potential to accessorise Defender extends beyond the vehicle itself, as customers can also shop from the new Above and Beyond Collection – a 24-piece capsule collection designed and developed in collaboration with Musto®. The range of outdoor performance apparel, technical equipment and accessories delivers the same toughness as the famous off-roader and features everything from a hybrid jacket, which effortlessly transforms into a gilet using Quickburst zip technology, to a belt with a tensile strength of 6,000kg.
A selection of lifestyle packs is also available mirroring those available for new Defender, grouping specially chosen kit that suit country life, city living, outdoor adventure and exploration respectively.
