Land Rover revealed that the new Defender is a real SUVDecember 14, 2019
The press service of the British brand published a video showing how the new generation of Land Rover Defender can overcome various off-road obstacles.
If you have any doubts that the completely new generation of the British SUV Land Rover Defender is losing its legendary predecessor in the possibility of conquering the terrain, then you are very mistaken. This video, which was recently published by the press service of the automaker, shows what the receiver of an off-road legend of the last century is capable of.
and the car is driven by the chief engineer of the new Defender (110) Mike Cross. It shows the car’s behavior in two different tests, which were called Leap and Rally.
The first test is designed to show the ability of the Defender 110 to cope with small jumps during high-speed races. According to Mr. Cross, these tests are designed specifically for potential buyers of the updated SUV, who prefer driving on the so-called open off-road, where they can accelerate their car to high speeds.
The next task that was prepared for the Defender SUV is a rally – high-speed travel on a wet dirt road. Land Rover Defender 110 did not set any records for the passage of the route – it was important to show how an SUV, in principle, can cope with riding on such a road. The ability to overcome huge puddles is not new, but it is still an important part of being a real SUV.
The upgraded Land Rover Defender has massive wheels. I must say that the Defender of the previous generation was faithful to the real foundations of SUVs, which put the ability to overcome all sorts of rough roads above comfort. The new generation of the legendary Defender will officially go on sale in early 2020.
