All the naysayers of the new Land Rover Defender have been silenced because it turns out it really is just that good. A new trim level has entered the stable, and it’s known as the XS Edition. It replaces the “First Edition” from 2020, and it’s a bit more refined in its appearance thanks to matching body-colored trim on the lower portion, matching wheel arches, and stunning Satin Grey 20-inch diamond-turned alloy wheels. Inside, it’s far from the no-frills first-gen Defender. The XS gets 12-way Ebony grained leather and woven textile heated and cooled seats, the slick Pivi Pro infotainment system, and a booming 10-speaker Meridian sound system. Don’t worry, it can still conquer the rough and tumble with its Configurable Terrain Response 2 systme, locking rear diff, 11.5 inches of ground clearance, and the stiffest structure ever found on a Land Rover.
