The new Land Rover Defender 110 is spacious and comfortable enough to sleep in but for those who still want that camping experience, the carmaker now offers a roof tent package with an intuitive design and premium quality materials.
Developed in collaboration with specialist Autohome, the roof tent has a lightweight fibreglass shell which protects the tent when not in use and allows it to be erected singlehandedly in seconds. Unclipping the fastening at the rear lifts the shell slightly for the integral gas struts to take over and fully open the carbon grey fabric sides.
Designed for those with adventurous hearts and curious minds, the tent accommodates two adults. It even comes with a full-size luxury cotton mattress and pillows, an interior LED light and a stowage net.
The tent can be easily accessed from either side of the vehicle and comes with an extendable aluminium access ladder which can be stored in the stowage bag inside the tent when not in use. On the move, it is stowed flat for maximum stability and aerodynamic efficiency. When erected, it measures 2.3 metres long, 1.3 metres wide and 1.5 metres high.
Joe Sinclair, Land Rover Director of Branded Goods and Licencing, said: “The New Land Rover Defender is the ideal vehicle to reach remote destinations comfortably both on and off road. This roof tent will enable Defender drivers to continue their adventure above and beyond their journey; it’s perfect for the modern-day explorer.”
The roof tent, priced in the UK at €3,081.96 (almost RM15,000) is an addition to the 170 individual accessories already available for the Defender – the largest range ever produced for a Land Rover – and works in conjunction with the official Land Rover Expedition Roof Rack and Roof Rails, which come fitted as standard with the Adventure Pack.
The Adventure Pack is one of four accessory packs available for New Defender – alongside the Explorer, Country and Urban Packs – each designed to give the vehicle a distinct character. Over half of all Defender 110 models specified online have been fitted with one of the packs.
