On first looks from the outside the Series 3, Defender 110 and Defender 90 variants looked very much the same but they all had some distinguishing feature to set them apart. Markedly, the Defender 110 model had the coil springs which were definitely the reason to give the occupants plush comfort and ease in axle control.
Also there were more fashionable interiors, higher single piece windscreen, permanent 4WD and boosted engine. There were alterations made in terms of interior trimming, range of colors and graphics. It also featured radio players, cassette readers, head lamp wash and wipe systems, storage parts and better seating arrangements. The more advanced graphics, interiors, engine specifications and transmission power aided the sales performance of Defender 90 in 1980s.
The Special Division set up for contracts with Britain’s Army had the Defender 127 adapted for the purpose of launching Rapier missiles. They manufactured a special vehicle that was an arrangement of three Defender models. The heavy Rapier missile was safely kept in the Defender 127. This vehicle was fixed to two Defender 110 vehicles. These two vehicles were meant to transport the army soldiers and additional equipment. Thus the trio was a special vehicle for military purposes. Later, on the Defender 127 also was referred to as the ‘Land Rover Defender 130’. It still remains offered with the five seats HCPU style of standard body.
The Defender 90 had a lot more space for the engine parts in comparison to the earlier versions. The wheels arches were coated with polyurethane and the windscreen was higher as one piece and this totally made the difference. The fabric on the seats was also overhauled and the old wind- up windows swapped for newer slide-up windows. The wheel arches were not congested as the boxed-in sections used up very less space. The result was amazing with regards to storage and was very much appreciated as the loading space increased.
Out with the leaf springs and in with the coil ones that gave enduring suspension capacity. Another extra feature was the powered steering wheel. Defender 90 too had preferences including graphics, color deviations and headlamps. Other features that were different were washing and wipe systems and styled wheels to name a few. Thus it developed into a vehicle that offered heavy load capacity, easy handling, driving coziness and cross-country ability.
Competition at that time was very tough especially, from Japanese makes and Land Rover had to come up with advertising campaigns to rope in those customers. Toyota and Nissan were the main competitor models in the same segment as Defender. There were also special editions built in small lots to meet specific military contracts and a Defender 90 with amphibious quality was one of them.
