New Land Rover Defender design leaked in new picture ahead of launch
A new image of the 2020 Land Rover Defender has been launched ahead of its debut later this year. The image which was tweeted out which shows the digital gauge cluster of the alleged new car, showing an uncamouflaged look at the vehicle. It shows a digital render on the side view of the car, showing the best-uncovered look of the vehicle. From the images, the car loos to have a much more modern design compared to the previous generation.
It retains the iconic boxy and sturdy shape but seems to have a slightly more rounded face.
The car also appears to come with small oval LED lights at the front and black wing mirror, B-and D-pillars and a body-coloured floating C-pillar.
At the rear of the car, there also seems to be some form of cladding on the roof and a vertical rear end with a wheel attached to the back.
Underpinning the new car will be a slightly modified version of the MLA platform which is used on the JLR car such as the Range Rover Sport and Land Rover Discovery.
It is set to be built at the new Jaguar Land Rover plant in Slovakia and is expected to go into production in 2020.
There is no word on what the car will be powered by and will likely to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show or at a separate launch event around the same time.
