Sturgess Land Rover of Leicester, one of the UK's oldest Land Rover retailers, hosted the new Land Rover Defender at a special preview event last Saturday.
The event was attended by over 200 customers who were able to view the new Defender alongside the current Land Rover and Range Rover range. Also on display was a 1949 Series 1 Land Rover kindly loaned from the Jaguar Land Rover Classic Heritage Vehicle Collection, a very rare Defender 90 NAS V8 soft top and a fully restored 1975 Range Rover.
Sturgess took orders for the new Defender on the day, along with selling a number of other new and used vehicles during the event.
Chris Sturgess, Chairman, remarked after the event: "We are obviously very grateful to our customers for coming to see this fabulous new vehicle and the reaction to it from them was excellent. Our dealership team did a fantastic job of making all our visitors feel relaxed and well informed about the new Defender and I am confident we will see more orders as a result of the preview day.”
