The „most exciting new car of 2020”

The Defender is idolized in Great Britain

The production of classic Land Rover Defender ended in January 2016, and the all-new model was launched in 2019. And it is one of the star cars of 2020 despite the fact that replacing the old Defender was a Herculean task.

The original, on sale in various forms for nearly 70 years, was an off-road institution and a British motoring icon. And yet its 2020 successor manages to blend the go-anywhere capability we’ve come to expect with the kind of interior refinement.

The British just love it. For instance, the readers of „What Car” Magazine have chosen the Defender as the most exciting new car of 2020, from a shortlist of 12 new cars compiled by the magazine’s experts.

British Kahn Design is well known for never being satisfied with original designs. No matter what model we’re talking about, they will polish it until it gets a wild outlook the factory designer have not even dreamed of. Take the two Huntsman models born as Land Rover Defenders. The short version is your go to commuter car but the six wheel type challenges the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet (the landlaulet is the bodywork boasting a retractable soft top). The car stupefies you with its name for starters: Land Rover Defender 110 Flying Huntsman 6×6 Pickup.
