The SUV turned into the van as the Defender Hard Top.
The company clearly hinted at a simplified business model “Defender” of the new generation even during its world premiere last fall. But then on this small debut decided not to focus, and to the publication of all (almost) of the essential parts of the hand the British have only got now.
Land Rover Defender on the role of “workhorse” will receive the historic designation of the Hard Top, which is used in the line since 1950. Commercial modification company will build on the basis of both three-and five-door versions, but for an elongated SUV it will be possible to order the air suspension that can change the ground clearance (STD – 291 mm), while the three-door Defender Hard Top will get uncontested spring.
In both cases, virtually all the interior space of an SUV given to the goods. From Defender Hard Top stored only front row seats (they can be both two, and three), and is clearly visible from outside the business version of “Defender” devoid of rear Windows.
For better review back in the case when the cargo Bay is filled under the roof, is a proprietary rearview camera Rear View ClearSight. Another electronic assistant – Advanced Tow Assist designed to facilitate control of the SUV with a trailer when reversing. And pull a Defender Hard Top capable of loads up to 3.5 tonnes. While not yet announced the payload capacity of the SUV and the amount of Luggage that one is able to take on Board.
It is not excluded, these data will be revealed later – like list of power units, access to which will get the Defender Hard Top. In Europe, sales of the commercial version of the new SUV will start in the coming months.
