While the Defender 2.0L 300PS is powered by an Ingenium 4-cylinder direct-injection petrol engine, the Defender 3.0L 400PS MHEV as its name suggests, is powered by a mild hybrid powertrain comprising a 3.0-litre 6-cylinder petrol engine and a 48V electric supercharger.

Maximum torque figures for the Defender 2.0L 300PS and Defender 3.0L 400PS stand at 400 Nm and 550 Nm respectively.
