Introducing the Land Rover Defender Octa

Land Rover has introduced the most powerful variant of the Defender SUV yet, the Land Rover Defender Octa. With a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter mild-hybrid V-8 engine producing 626 horsepower and up to 590 pound-feet of torque, the Octa promises impressive performance capabilities. However, there is more to this SUV than just raw power. Land Rover has made significant changes to the suspension, design, and overall off-road capabilities of the Octa.

### Increased Off-Road Performance
The Defender Octa features Land Rover’s 6D Dynamics chassis, which enhances off-road performance by eliminating body pitch and roll while maximizing suspension articulation. It sits 1.1 inches higher than the standard Defender, with a 2.7-inch wider stance, longer cross arms, and unique active dampers. These improvements result in better handling and control in challenging off-road conditions.

### Impressive Performance Figures
Equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Octa can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds and achieve a top speed of 155 miles per hour. The SUV is also capable of fording 3.3 feet of water, making it well-suited for adventurous off-road excursions. The addition of 33-inch Goodyear Advance All-Terrain tires further enhances its off-road capabilities.

### Luxurious Interior Design
Inside the Defender Octa, occupants will find new Performance seats with enhanced support and integrated headrests. Land Rover offers a variety of interior trim options, including Burnt Sienna semi-aniline leather with ebony Kvadrat fabric, as well as two-tone khaki and ebony upholstery for the Edition One model. The cabin features carbon fiber details, adding a touch of luxury and sophistication.

### Unique Exterior Features
The exterior of the Defender Octa boasts a new grille design, redesigned bumpers, and quad tailpipes with an active exhaust system. The SUV comes with front and rear recovery points, underbody protection, and 22-inch light-alloy wheels. Customers can choose from two new exterior colors, Petra Copper and Faroe Green, along with existing options such as Carpathian Grey and Charente Grey.

### Limited Edition Model
The Defender Octa Edition One will be available during the SUV’s first year of production. This special trim includes carbon fiber details, 20-inch alloy wheels, and an Advanced All-Terrain tire option. Only  two-tone khaki and ebony seat upholstery will be available for this edition. Additionally, the Edition One model will feature exclusive color options and unique design elements, making it a truly special variant of the Defender Octa.

In conclusion, the Land Rover Defender Octa sets a new standard for power, performance, and off-road capabilities in the SUV segment. With its impressive engine output, advanced suspension system, and luxurious interior, the Octa is sure to appeal to enthusiasts looking for an exhilarating driving experience both on and off the road. Land Rover’s attention to detail and commitment to excellence are evident in every aspect of the Defender Octa, making it a standout choice in the competitive SUV market.
