Used Land Rover Defender Hard Top for sale
Who said a van had to look like a van? With the Land Rover Defender Hard Top, it looks more like an SUV evolved.
Essentially, this is effectively a regular Defender with the rear seats removed, but sometimes the simplest ideas are the best ones. Only the Defender Hard Top offers so much more.
There's two versions, a short-wheelbase 90 Hard Top and a Long-Wheelbase Hard Top, all coming with four-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission. Other highlights are listed below.
- Clever design
- Better looking than a regular van
- Lots of tech
- Drives great, on and off road
- Jump seat for third passenger
Economy, Towing, and Performance
Economy is stated by Land Rover at just under 30mpg for both versions which have a choice of multiple diesel engines with varying power.
Both 90 Hard Top and 110 Hard Top versions are excellent when it comes to towing capabilities, with a 3,500kg volume with a braked trailer and 750kg possibility with an unbraked trailer.
As for overall performance, the Defender 90 Hard Top and 110 Hard Top both drive like a car/SUV, and so feel more refined than your average panel van. They perform brilliantly on road as well as off it, as with all Land Rover models.
Bodystyles, Payload, and Capacity
As mentioned previously, used Land Rover Defender Hard Tops can be had in 90 (short-wheelbase) or 110 (long-wheelbase) bodystyles. The 110 offers more space and load options, whilst the 90 is more style conscious due to its smaller size.

- 90 with 2 seats = 740kg
- 90 with 3 seats = 748kg
- 110 with 2 seats and coil suspension = 805kg
- 110 with 2 seats and air suspension = 875kg
- 110 with 3 seats and coil suspension = 818kg
- 110 with 3 seats and air suspension = 888kg
As for capacity, these are again listed below:
- Max load length 90 = 1,031mm

- Max load width 110 = 1,423mm
Interior, Technology, and Safety
The interior of the Defender Had Top mimics the original SUV, meaning it's a nice place to spend time.
You get a fully-digital instrument cluster when choosing SE trim and above (part-digital in base model), along with a crisp central infotainment screen. The cabin is big and there's lots of useful cubby space, and you get a high-quality feel throughout.
Equipment is excellent, with 3D cameras and Pivi Pro infotainment as standard on the 10-inch central touchscreen.
As for safety, all Defender Hard Top models come with electronic stability control, 3D Surround Camera, Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist and Autonomous Emergency Braking.
Is the Land Rover Defender Hard Top right for me?
If you're in the market for a commercial vehicle that showcases a more upmarket approach, the Land Rover Defender Hard Top is certainly an excellent choice.
It costs a lot more than a regular van, but you do of course get added quality and image. Competition comes in the form of its sibling - the Land Rover Discovery Commercial, whilst much cheaper SUV-like commericial examples can be found used, such as the Dacia Duster Commercial.
