We know you tug of war fans have been looking forward to this one... We've got the all-new Defender with us, and it's going head-to-head against the previous generation!
When it was first unveiled, a number of Defender fanboys came out saying they weren't happy with the latest generation. But does it really deserve all the hate?! People have claimed it wouldn't be able to compete with the power of the older model, so we thought this would be the perfect way to put it to the test!
But who's your money on? Does the older model have what it takes to claim the win? Or will the tech that's packed into the latest release be enough to pull it to victory? There's only one way to find out - LET'S GO!
Thanks to Nene Overland for lending us the old Defender -

  • But if I was going on an expedition to Borneo or somewhere equally remote it would be the old one. Just too many computers sensors and other gubbins to throw a wobbly in the middle of nowhere...... Oh and the new defender is one ugly Americanised stain. Going the same way as mini sadly.

  • Utterly predictable. The heavier car is going to win assuming that the tyres aren't wildly mismatched for the terrain.

  • What a pointless bloody test! Again you are proving nothing and not comparing like for like! Old technology old powertrain and technically even with the diff lock in the old Defender it’s only 2 wheels that are actually driving! The engines totally different; transmissions manual against auto! Our kid your videos are becoming tedious!

  • The whole point of the Land Rover was that it was a basic utility vehicle that could go anywhere and the owners could perform basic maintenance themselves. There will be no place for the new Defender on safari, with overseas aid agencies, military and farmers. I hope there are plans for a basic model to fit the go anywhere, fix on the go, scenario but I'm not holding my breath as the Chelsea tractor market is worth more. Looks like the Toyota Land Cruiser will hold the crown as vehicle of choice in developing nations for a long time to come!

  • That is the old base , the one we got in South Africa were not that model but the one with traction control , try using one of those , it might just make this new one break down like many new owners are finding out they do .

  • The fact that the new one won every test is no surprise at all. It would have been a joke if it didn't. My thoughts that that they should have modernized the old Defender like the way Mercedes and Suzuki did the G-Wagon and Jimny. This new Defender is a very good Discovery.

  • One of them is a Landrover..... the other is a JLR mix and match from the Range Roveresque design studio for well healed influencers.... Farmers will buy a D Max, Hi Lux or some other utility truck.... like the Land Rover used to be. I see a replacement for the current Discovery.... that doesn’t look like a crumpled tramps hat. Landrover is a vehicle.... no longer made. Not a brand to be plagiarised and bastardised by a foreign owner.

  • A "test" but on different tyres?? What happened? Did the old version win when the tyres were the same? Knobby tyres in the lighter car will be a disadvantage, once you lose traction the other much heavier car will pull you. There's a video on ISpast of a Q7 vs a car that looks like it has 33" mud tyres, once the mud tyre loses traction he is finished
