Designer envisions next-gen Defender

CarWow website has published a set of renderings that envision a possible replacement for the iconic Land Rover Defender, taking inspiration from the DC100 Concept and the Evoque.


The renderings posted by CarWow.co.uk show a plausible Defender that adopts the distinctive, rugged yet clean surfacing of the current Land Rover line-up.

Inspiration for this virtual concept came from the DC100 Concept revealed in 2011, a show car that could give some hints on the design direction of the future Defender.

As CarWow reports, “the only noticeable change we’re expecting to see is a move from the DC100’s circular LED daytime running lights to the more squared ones seen on the facelifted Range Rover Evoque.”

To show the car in context, CarWow has mocked up different variants, including a Camel Trophy version for extreme offroad, a Police model and a version for farmers.
