As we promised before, we present today our first test drive of the production version of the new 2020 Land Rover Defender, in this special episode of the Special Coverage program.
After we showed you two Volg episodes of our colleague, Suhaib Shashaa, exploring the country of Namibia in South Africa with the new Defender, which you can watch again by clicking here; Part One, and Part Two.
Today’s adventure involved driving the 2020 Defender for almost a thousand kilometers on a very challenging terrain that included rocky roads, sand, and mud, and we also drove through the water as the 2020 Land Rover Defender has a wading depth of up to 90cm.
