Land Rover Defender Octa: Tyres And Wheels

The Land Rover Defender Octa gets high-performance and extremely durable 22-inch alloy wheels with 275/50 R22 Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac RT tyres. These off-road tyres are the biggest a Defender variant has ever received and are designed for all-season compatibility.

 Land Rover Defender Octa: Engine And Specifications

Paired with an 8-speed transmission, this engine propels the Defender Octa to a top speed of 250 kmph while enabling it to cross the 100 kmph mark from 0 in 3.8 seconds.

For best-ever off-roading ability, the Land Rover Defender Octa also gets a highly-advanced chassis setup, including 6D Dynamics suspension setup with hydraulically-linked dampers, beefed-up underbody protection, a new ‘Octa’ drive mode and tougher wishbones. Even the approach, departure and break-over angles, ground clearance and water wading capacity are higher than the standard Defender 110.
