It is no secret that the all-new generation Defender is just around the corner and in the midst of a gruelling testing schedule throughout the world. However, the British car manufacturer has kept it under heavy camo so far, hiding its exterior design details. If , however, the Lego Technic model proves to be accurate, the new Defender won’t look drastically different than the one we’re familiar with.
In recent months, spy photographers have snapped the new SUV during testing in both three- and five-door guises. The Lego Technic model is a three-door and supports boxy wheel arches, squared headlights, a green exterior, and a white roof. The set consists of 2,573 parts and likely be launched shortly after Land Rover presents the actual car, most likely at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
In addition to producing the new Defender in three- and five-door forms, Land Rover will sell the vehicle in short- and long-wheelbase versions. The vehicle will be built alongside the Discovery at JLR’s plant in Nitra, Slovakia.
Meanwhile, an image reportedly showing the interior of the new Defender emerged online a few months ago. The cabin included a fully-digital gauge cluster, wireless charging, a four-spoke steering wheel, and a prominent touchscreen infotainment system in the center of the dashboard.
Various powertrains will be offered, among which 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol and diesel units and a petrol-electric hybrid similar to the one in the Range Rover Sport.
