Land Rover Defender

When choosing what off-road vehicle to buy, it’s important to find a safe and stylish ride that is within your price range.

Land Rover Defender Safety

Let’s dive into safety first:

The Land Rover Defender has power child safety which will allow you to control them with a click of a button from the driver’s seat. However, the Ford Bronco child’s locks have to be individually turned on and off from the rear door with a manual switch. When bringing the kids along on an off-road adventure, it is important to ensure all safety measures are in place and with the Land Rover Defender, you can feel confident your kids are in good hand.

Up front the Land Rover Defender has a higher ticket price than the Ford Bronco, but the Land Rover Defender has a bunch of features included that the Ford Bronco makes their customers pay for. Let’s dive into some of these important features:

The Land Rover Defender has a standard lane departure warning system that will alert an inattentive driver when the vehicle begins to shift into the lane next to them and pushes the vehicle back into its own lane.

The Land Rover Defender has a standard rear cross-path warning system which makes backing out of tight parking spaces feel like a walk in the park. The sensors in the rear bumper alerts the driver from vehicles approaching from the left and right that may be hard to see otherwise.
