Design Similarities: A Nod to the Defender

One of the first things you’ll notice about the Jetour T2 is its striking resemblance to the Land Rover Defender. Both vehicles share a bold, boxy design that exudes strength and capability. The Jetour T2 features:

  • A Rugged Exterior: Just like the Defender, the T2 has a robust and commanding road presence with its squared-off edges and high ground clearance. The grille and headlight design also echo the Defender’s classic look.
  • Functional Features: Both SUVs come with functional features such as roof rails and high bumpers designed for off-road adventures. While the Defender might have more premium touches, the T2 offers a similar rugged appeal at a fraction of the cost.

Interior Comfort and Technology

Inside, the Jetour T2 continues to impress with a design that feels familiar to those who appreciate the Defender’s attention to detail.

  • Spacious Cabin: The T2 offers a spacious interior with comfortable seating for up to five passengers, similar to the Defender’s ability to accommodate families or groups on long journeys.
  • Modern Amenities: While the Defender  offers high-end finishes and advanced technology, the T2 provides a modern infotainment system, digital displays, and a range of features designed to ensure a comfortable driving experience. It might not have the luxury materials of the Defender, but it does offer practicality and travel comfort.

Performance and Off-Road Capability

When it comes to performance, both SUVs are built to handle various terrains, though the Defender might have a slight edge in extreme conditions.

  • Off-Road Prowess: The Jetour T2 is equipped with a capable drivetrain and several driving modes designed to tackle different terrains, making it a strong contender for off-road adventures. While it may not match the Defender’s advanced off-road technology, it is more than sufficient for typical off-road and rough road conditions in Qatar.
  • Engine Options: The T2 offers a robust engine that provides ample power for both city driving and off-road excursions. While the Defender’s engines are designed for high performance and efficiency, the T2’s engine delivers a balanced combination of power and value.

Price Comparison: A Budget-Friendly Choice

One of the biggest selling points for the Jetour T2 is its affordability compared to the Land Rover Defender .

  • Cost Efficiency: The Jetour T2 is priced at approximately QAR 125,000, which is about half the starting price of the Defender at QAR 250,000. This makes the T2 an attractive option for those who admire the Defender’s look and capabilities but are seeking a more budget-friendly solution.
  • Value for Money: At this price point, the T2 provides excellent value with its feature set and design that closely resembles the Defender. For Qatar residents looking to get a great SUV without breaking the bank, the T2 offers a compelling choice.


If you’re in the market for a rugged, adventure-ready SUV but are mindful of your budget, the Jetour T2 is a fantastic alternative to the Land Rover Defender . It captures the essence of the Defender’s design and capabilities while offering a more affordable price tag. With its stylish exterior, comfortable interior, and off-road capabilities, the Jetour T2 is an excellent option for Qatar residents who want the best of both worlds: a high-quality vehicle at a lower price.

  1. Really intrigued by the Jetour T2 being a budget-friendly option compared to the Defender. It’s refreshing to see options that don’t break the bank but still promise adventure and reliability. Has anyone had a test drive yet? Would love to hear first-hand experiences!

  2. curious abt the tech inside the T2. the defender’s got some neat gear, wonder if T2 matches up or got something even cooler?

    1. Got a sneak peak of T2’s dash. Not bad at all. Screen’s big and interface looks user-friendly. Ain’t no Defender but it’s something.

    2. I think we’re missing the point comparing screens and gadgets. It’s about the drive and feel. Does T2 give that off-road confidence like the Defender does? That’s the real question.

  3. Honestly, the design nod to the Defender caught my eye. If the T2 drives half as good in rough conditions, I’m sold. Great to see IM Qatar highlighting these alternatives. We need more of this in the market!
