THE ICON REDEFINED: NEW LAND ROVER DEFENDER
The New Land Rover Defender is ready for the adventure. He comes to places where other cars must give up. The characteristic appearance of the iconic Defender has been translated into a modern design that looks robust, but at the same time radiates driving pleasure. Thanks to four Accessory Packs and an extensive range of individual accessories, you can fully personalize the New Defender.
Within seventy years Land Rover has conquered the hearts of explorers, aid organizations and adventurers worldwide. The Defender has proven itself in the most extreme conditions. The New Defender completes the Land Rover range, which further comprises the Discovery family (Discovery and Discovery Sport) and the Range Rover family (Evoque, Velar, Sport and Range Rover). The New Defender 110 appears on the market in the first quarter of 2020. The New Defender 90 with a shorter wheelbase will be introduced at a later date.
Land Rover translated the characteristic design features of the iconic Defender into the twenty-first century. The powerful appearance and the typical glass panels in the roof contribute to the modern appearance of the New Defender. On the other hand, the short overhang, Alpine windows, the rear door that opened laterally and the separately mounted spare wheel, go back to the past. They make the New Defender instantly recognizable as a real Land Rover.
“The new Defender is respectful of its past but is not harnessed by it. This is a new Defender for a New Age. Its unique personality is accentuated by its distinctive silhouette and optimum proportions, which make it both highly desirable and seriously capable – a visually compelling 4×4 that wears its design and engineering integrity with uncompromised commitment.” – Gerry McGovern, Chief Design Officer, Land Rover.
The no-nonsense character of the original Defender is reflected in the modern interior in which structural elements and reinforcements are visible. Innovative technologies such as the transmission control on the dashboard make it possible to place an extra “Jump Seat” between the two front seats, just like in the original Land Rover Series.
The New Defender will be in the showroom in the first quarter of 2020. The New Defender 90 is available from € 94,300 and the New Defender 110 from € 101,300. The New Land Rover Defender can be put together via www.landrover.nl/Defender.
