The next generation Land Rover Defender, which will maintain the angular shape of the body, will be presented in September

At the disposal of the Dutch edition of Autoweek was a photograph of the next generation Land Rover Defender SUV, on which the car was captured without camouflage. The premiere of the novelty will be held in September 2019.

As previously assumed, the new Defender will retain the angular shape of the body, as well as get some features that make it similar to the DC100 prototype, which was introduced in 2011. In addition, the SUV will be offered with LED optics and a contrasting roof with a glass panel in the rear.

Land Rover Defender will be built on a new lightweight chassis with independent suspension. It is assumed that the SUV will lose its V8 engines, which will be replaced by new two-liter diesel and petrol “turbo-fours” of the Ingenium family. It is possible that the V6 units will also add to the engine range. In addition, the SUV will have a modification with a hybrid power plant.

The British tested cars with both a three-door and a five-door body. The prototypes visited African Kenya, traveled through the Rocky Mountains in Colorado at an altitude of more than 3 thousand meters above sea level, and also tested in the Arctic Circle. Temperatures ranged from minus 40 to plus 50 degrees Celsius. In total, engineers conducted more than 45 thousand individual tests.
