- Is not expected to stray away from original formula
- Will sport a mix of modern Land Rover looks and classic Defender lines
- Likely to have a hybrid engine setup
Land Rover has confirmed that the next generation Defender will launched in 2020. This will be the third generation for the British automaker’s iconic SUV and is expected to be the biggest generation change the vehicle has gone through since its launch nearly four decades ago.
There’s little to go about right now but we know this much that the car will sport a mix of the classic Defender lines as well as the latest design philosophy from Land Rover. We believe that it will be the same story on the inside with a mix of old school design and new Land Rover tech.
What will be quite new will be a possible hybrid setup for the SUV as it will get some form of hybrid technology to improve efficiency and give it the ability to operate with ease at the bottom end of the scale. Will it come to India? We would like to believe so but in limited numbers and via the CBU route.
