Land Rover has presented the 2020 Defender today.

In Germany, the interested people can configure the model choosing from the Defender 110 (from €55,600), the Defender 110 First Edition (€74,700), and the Defender 110 X (€98,500).
The same versions are offered for US customers priced from $49,900, $68,650, and $80,900, respectively.
Later commercial models will join the 2020 Land Rover Defender lineup.
A capable vehicle
The car design is sophisticated, stylish, and functional. The rugged silhouette is instantly recognizable thanks to shortened front and rear.
The new D7x architecture enabled the model to undergo testing in extreme conditions, which went far beyond the standard for SUVs.
The Defender’s off-road capability is impressive. It is the best choice for overland trips. The vehicle can ride on any surface and cover long distances.
The maximum payload is up to 900 kg, the allowable static load on the roof is up to 300 kg, the towing capacity is 3,720 kg. It is able to drive across the ford up to 900 mm in depth.
The 2020 Land Rover Defender features intelligent off-road technologies, including Terrain Response 2 with a new program for going through water barriers, the Configurable Terrain Response adaptive system (enables the driver to make optimal settings for all conditions).
An innovative PIVI Pro infotainment system with intuitive interface first debuts in the model.
The automaker applied unique design solutions for the interior, in particular, a central front flip-down seat.
The Defender 110 is available with 5, 6, or 5+2 seat layouts and four different equipment options (Explorer, Adventure, Country, and Urban), as well as 170 custom accessories.
The Defender 90 can accommodate 6 passengers with the driver. The cargo space is 1,075 liters. It can be enlarged to 2,380 liters with the second-row seats folded.
Land Rover offers a wide range of modern gasoline and efficient diesel engines for the new Defender. A plug-in hybrid powertrain will join next year.
The diesel engine range includes a four-cylinder P300 and a powerful six-cylinder P400 with mild-hybrid technology.
Customers can also choose between a four-cylinder D200 diesel engine and a powerful four-cylinder D240, both consume up to 31 mpg (7.6 l/100 km) and emit 199 g/km CO2 (NEDC).
Land Rover continues its long-term humanitarian partnership with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. The Land Rover Defender is an important part of this collaboration.
