As much as I love Defenders, I don't think it would be my first choice for extreme cold weather. I'd prefer a new Range Rover with heated/massaging seats, heated steering wheel, heated windscreen, and and quad-zone climate control.

Yeah ... But try fixing that in the field when something breaks.

For me it wouldn't be much of a problem, but I work on them every day. I assume a Puma motor is drive by wire, so fixing that could be just as difficult as fixing a Range Rover in the field. I would be a bit concerned about puncturing an air spring, but other than that, I think it'd be a better choice than a new defender.
