Land Rover Defender Wins World Car Design of the Year
BROUGHT TO YOU BY LAND ROVER SOUTH DADE
We all know that Land Rover has been creating the most interesting and stylish SUVs around for years. That’s why it should come as a surprise to no one that the 2021 Land Rover Defender has been crowned as the 2021 World Car Design of the Year. The Defender beat out rivals to win a coveted award that really belongs to the designers at Land Rover that never settle for anything other than the best. This is a lineup of a vehicle that offers 90 and 110 body designs, and even a new powertrain! The Defender has now won 53 international awards since it was initially launched, and Land Rover continues to have unprecedented demand for this luxurious and highly capable machine. When Land Rover sets out to do something, they always get it right.
CAN YOU TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE AWARD?
For the 2021 award season, every contender competing in the other four award categories was also eligible to be considered for World Car Design of the Year. The panel of judges consisted of automotive design experts who reviewed the recommendations that were sent in by 93 international journalists. The design experts were from across the world, including Germany, the United Kingdom, France, the United States, and Japan. The goal was to find the vehicle that demonstrated the highest standard of technical innovation, and design, along with a drive toward pushing boundaries.
WHAT MAKES THE DEFENDER WORTHY OF THE AWARD?
There are many different reasons why this Land Rover was such an instant hit when considered by the judges. One of the first things is simply the distinctive silhouette, which makes this a vehicle that you will instantly recognize. That’s because it boasts menial front and rear overhangs, which really does help when it comes to off-roading. You’ll also be able to admire the stripped-back personality on the inside of this SUV, giving you an exposed feeling, accommodations for six occupants, and a focus on practicality.
WHAT ABOUT THE OFF-ROADING CAPABILITIES?
One of the most important aspects, whether it’s on-the-road, or off of it, is the Defender’s aluminum platform, which offers the stiffest ever body structure from Land Rover. You’ll also find advanced all-terrain technologies, and a powertrain that delivers the kind of capability you need to have the adventures you’re searching for. Even with that, the Defender has been awarded a five-star safety rating, which means that even while you’re off-roading, this vehicle has your back at all times.
