Sometimes photos don’t quite do a car justice, but that’s why we have video. MotorTrend correspondent Justin Bell got some one-on-one time with the new 2020 Land Rover Defender on the floor of the Frankfurt Motor Show. Justin dives deep into what makes the new Defender a modern take on an automotive institution.
From keeping its classic two-box design and straight lines to incorporating new elements like full LED headlamps, the redesigned Defender might not make everyone happy, but they can take solace in the fact that it’s still a proper off-roader with its short overhangs and high, flat sides. Bell takes you around the outside of the new Landie and shows off the Defender’s interior. Sadly, we didn’t get a look under the hood, but that will no doubt come later. Check out the video to get an up-close look at the 2020 Land Rover Defender while it’s sitting pretty on the show stand in Frankfurt. There’s a good chance it’s the cleanest Defender you will ever lay eyes on.
