Defender Octa: A New High-performance Hero

Land Rover, the iconic British adventure brand, is revving up for the launch of their most powerful and luxurious Defender ever - the Defender OCTA. Arriving in 2024, this flagship model pushes the boundaries of off-road capability and on-road refinement.

The OCTA boasts a twin-turbo V8 mild-hybrid engine, paired with the groundbreaking 6D Dynamics air suspension. This industry-leading combo delivers phenomenal performance on any terrain imaginable. Whether you're cruising the highway or conquering rocky trails, the OCTA delivers an unparalleled blend of power, comfort, and control. The 6D system ensures a level stance during manoeuvres and maximises wheel travel for tackling tough off-road obstacles.

The name OCTA itself draws inspiration from the strength and rarity of a diamond, the hardest natural material on Earth. Reflecting this theme, a new diamond-shaped emblem graces the OCTA, symbolising its premium status. This emblem, crafted from robust titanium, is found on both the interior and exterior, adding a touch of luxury and toughness.

The Defender OCTA has undergone the most rigorous testing program in Land Rover history, braving everything from the frozen landscapes of Sweden to the scorching deserts of Dubai. It's been pushed to the limit on racetracks and rock crawls, ensuring it can handle anything you throw at it.

Land Rover is offering exclusive previews of the OCTA to potential customers as part of their new global Defender Elements series. If you're interested in being among the first to experience this revolutionary off-roader, contact your local Defender retailer today.

“We’re incredibly excited for the way in which OCTA will broaden the appeal of Defender for UK clients. This highly exclusive new model takes the brand to new heights, exploring the ultimate in tough luxury, and blending performance and off-road capability in one enthralling vehicle.” Patrick McGillycuddy, Managing Director JLR UK
