The land rover d110 is a vehicle that’s built for a special kind of buyer. Its off-road abilities and toughness are renowned, but it’s also capable of handling just about anything you throw at it.
It’s also a car that can be used in some of the most challenging conditions, including desert, mountain and deep-country environments. That’s why it’s a staple of Land Rover’s line-up of SUVs, which includes the Discovery and Freelander too.
With its squared styling and purposefully designed cabin, the d110 is a perfect candidate for safaris and expeditions. It comes equipped with low-range air suspension (standard on our test car), raised air intakes, roof racks and a side-mounted ‘gear’ carrier, plus chunky mud and snow tyres that add to its off-road credentials.
There’s plenty of room inside, too. The 110 offers five-seat accommodation and 972 litres of space with all seats up, while the 130’s eight-seat version provides 1232 litres of cargo room.

The d110’s driving dynamics are well-sorted, too, with a very comfortable ride and responsive steering. The optional adaptive air suspension is particularly effective, with a range that’s surprisingly good at keeping things smooth in all but the most demanding of circumstances.
A little bit of technology and cool appeal are thrown in, too, with bigger screens and heated and ventilated seats for more comfort. The d110 can be equipped with a number of pre-configured accessory packs to help you get the most out of it.
