What is that square white plate thingy on either side of the vehicle near the back door, side windows? Looks a bit silly, can you remove it? 07MY RRS TDV6

Covers up the structural quite chunky C pillar, some people are wrapping them in gloss black to
blend them in with the glass. You cannot remove them on the 110, but are optioned on the 90 Another Pommie Bar Steward down under

South Africa 2013 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Siberian Silver

The Land Rover Defender Is the 2021 MotorTrend SUV of the Year: https://www.motortrend.com/news/land-rover...-the-year/

"...Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

To conclude, summarize, and even proselytize, the new Land Rover Defender bowled us over: the design, both inside and out; the wonderful synchronization of the stout engine and yeoman transmission; the exceptional ride quality; its ambient nature; the baked-in, go-anywhere-on-the-planet capability; and its amazing value.
It's a heady and compelling mixture. Then there is the element that's not an official part of our six criteria but that I always lobby for: Winners should have some sort of X-factor, a secret sauce that reminds us why we chose to write about cars instead of refrigerators or computers. We love cars, trucks, and in this case SUVs. The Defender has these ineffable qualities in spades. The Defender received every first-place vote but one. See? It's special.

Seabaugh accurately summarized our thoughts: "Ignoring emotion, how can the Land Rover Defender not be our winner? No other vehicle here hits our six criteria so squarely in the mouth." And as Mike Tyson said and as the SUV segment is about to discover, everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth. Stellar work, Land Rover. We doff our pith helmets. ..."

Yes did well in the drive over a curb test in the car park Laughing

Was there actually another 4wd in the running - I thought they were just soft roaders. 07MY RRS TDV6
