2020 Defender



Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See SPEED LIMITER SAFETY.

Two types of speed limiter are available:

  • Speed limiter.

  • Adaptive speed limiter.

The speed limiter allows the driver to manually restrict the maximum vehicle speed. When a maximum speed limit is set, the vehicle responds normally until the set speed is approached. At this point, the vehicle stops accelerating.

The adaptive speed limiter works in conjunction with the traffic sign recognition system and the navigation system to restrict the maximum vehicle speed. If the system cannot determine a valid maximum speed, the last known set speed limit is used.

To activate the speed limiter, see SPEED LIMITER.

To activate the adaptive speed limiter, see ADAPTIVE SPEED LIMITER.

Press and hold the CAN button on the steering wheel to switch between the speed limiter and the adaptive speed limiter.

The touchscreen can also be used to toggle between speed limiter and adaptive speed limiter.


Speed limiters are not available when cruise control or adaptive cruise control is in operation. When the vehicle is first switched on, the vehicle defaults to both systems OFF.
