Review

If you’ve watched Top Gear for a while you may associate the Land Rover Defender (the original, basic Land Rover) with Richard Hammond, who was always a resolute defender of the Defender. But he has gone, and now so has the classic Land Rover, replaced after 67 years by a new version that promises to be the ultimate in off-road grit. But is it? 

Paddy McGuinness, Chris Harris and Freddie Flintoff head to the Scottish Highlands with a new Defender 90 and two rivals: the Mercedes-AMG G63 and the Ariel Nomad, a kind of superfast, all-terrain beach buggy made of scaffolding. Their rigorous tests involve clay pigeon shooting and a race to deliver a huge lightbulb to a lighthouse.
