A new image of the 2020 Land Rover Defender has been launched ahead of its debut later this year.

It shows a digital render on the side view of the car, showing the best-uncovered look of the vehicle. From the images, the car looks to have a much more modern design compared to the previous generation.

Details on the car’s interior remain tightly guarded, In an official statement, Land Rover said: “Jaguar Land Rover runs a wide range of engineering and technology development programmes. We are unable to comment on the specific nature of these programmes." – Land Rover

BMW 5 Series 520d Touring xDrive M Sport
Retains Title in the 1700-1899kg weight class

Last year's overall winner is back to defend its class title, and it's still brilliant. The 520d offers just about everything you might want from a tow car.

BMW should be very pleased with this result: it’s not as if the opposition is weak this year. The Volvo V60 Cross Country, in particular, runs the 5 Series very close. – Admin

Go for the xDrive version and your 5 Series comes with four-wheel drive. Pulling a caravan or horsebox over wet grass is much easier in a car that sends power to all four wheels, and it helps with hill starts in the wet, too. As a tow car, the 520d's outstanding feature is stability. In the lane-change test and at high speeds it maintains firm control over the caravan.

Heavyweight Class 1900kg PLUS - Winner - Land Rover Discovery

The Land Rover Discovery makes a habit of winning our heaviest weight class, but it faced serious competition in 2019. The new BMW X5, the Mercedes GLE, and the Volkswagen Touareg all proved very strong tow cars.

But, if you want to tow a big caravan or trailer over long distances, and end your journey feeling relaxed, the Discovery is still the best car for the job. The 3.0-litre SDV6 diesel engine has tremendous pulling power, and makes short work of towing a heavy twin-axle caravan up to speed. It's a refined engine, too, with very little noise making its way into the car, even under acceleration.
