The external appearance is significantly altered. Discovery will have the same chassis as the other two models of the company: Land Rover Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. The construction will be significantly lighter due to the use of aluminum. It seems to us that British engineers decided that a new defender gets the city look more than old offroad image.

For some people, according to available photographs, new Defender looks like a Skoda Yeti. On the other hand, what is the essence of the Defender has always been the easy maintenance. If a problem occurs while you are in off-road driving, it could easily be repaired if it is not a serious problem.
