To celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, Land Rover is gifting Her Majesty and the British Red Cross a specially commissioned New Defender 130 to support operations in the UK. Land Rover engineers will work with representatives from the charity, of which Her Majesty The Queen is a patron, to adapt the Defender 130 before it goes into service later this year. Defender 130 has its own colour palette, with a new, exclusive Sedona Red option ensuring the 130 stands out in the line-up. The exterior is complemented by the Extended Bright Pack – available in addition to the existing Bright Pack – which provides a distinct exterior design with Ceres Silver Satin finish around all lower body cladding and front and rear skid plates in Noble Chrome. Inside, thoughtful storage and convenience solutions are provided for every passenger across all three rows of seating. This ensures Defender 130 caters for passengers in every seat, with effortless access to the spacious three-abreast third row in a bright and airy cabin
The new MINI Countryman - Interior - Lots of space and even more freedom for individual style
"The new MINI Countryman combines its versatile driving characteristics with a variable interior. There are three fully-fledged seats in the rear. Alternatively, the second row of seats can also be used to expand transport capacities. By folding down the rear seat backrest, which can be divided in a ratio of 40: 20: 40, the luggage compartment volume can be expanded from 450 to up to 1,390 liters. The targeted individualization of the interior, based on the customer's personal style, is made even more attractive by new options and a further developed offering structure. Chester leather Indigo Blue and Chester Malt Brown leather have been added to the range of seat upholstery. The Color Line, previously offered as an individual option for the lower area of the instrument panel and the door trim, is now an integral part of the leather interior in the corresponding color scheme.
