Full profile of 2020 Land Rover Defender leaked in infotainment snapshot

The latest spy shot of the upcoming 2020 Land Rover Defender comes from an unlikely source: the vehicle itself. 

A photo of the vehicle’s infotainment system picturing what appears to be a full-on side view of the new Defender has been making the rounds on Twitter. 

Land Rover is known to project a profile of its vehicles on the display cluster like that, so that’s legit.

The alleged Defender is pictured with a white roof and an interesting C-pillar seemingly built into the rear door. 

The Twitter account dedicated to Land Rover images also shipped these spy photos, potentially snapped by the sneaky-peeker. 

LR can’t seem to catch a break in keeping the machine a secret, because last week Smyths, a toy retailer in the U.K., accidentally put up an early online ad for the 2020 Defender LEGO Technic Kit. It was removed, but not before the Internet took ownership of the images and details. 

The kit includes a “detailed inline six-cylinder engine,” which hints at a similar powerplant in the actual model. The LEGO version also has the white roof, as well as round headlights and a single-bar grille. 

The 2020 Land Rover Defender is expected to be revealed intentionally and in full by the brand itself at or around the Frankfurt auto show in September.
