All-terrain Land Rover Defender takes 2021 World Car Design of the Year award

Third Year for Land Rover’s Design Team

For the third year Land Rover takes top marks at the World Car of the Year Awards. Following previous victories from the Range Rover Valar in 20218, Range Rover Evoque in 2012, now the Range Rover Defender boasts its global award-winning design for 2021.

Shortlisted by a panel of seven automotive design experts and presented to a panel of 93 international automotive journalists for the final vote. The Defender was recognised for demonstrating the highest standards of technical innovation and design that pushes the boundaries, adding achievement number 53 to the cabinet of international awards.

“The new Defender remains true to the pioneering spirit that has been a Land Rover hallmark for more than 70 years and redefines adventure for the 21st century. Iconic in name, shape and capability, it is available in a choice of body designs and can be personalised with a choice of four Accessory Packs to help owners make more of their world.” – Land Rover New Zealand

“The new Defender exhibits outstanding technology advancements with the all-new PIVI Pro infotainment system and class-leading functionality features fit for the 21st century.”

“We are incredibly proud of the Defender and the global design team behind this vehicle, an incredibly deserving win for the Defender.”

“New Defender is influenced by its past but is not constrained by it and we are delighted it has been honoured with this award. Our vision was to create a 21st century Defender by pushing the boundaries of engineering, technology and design while retaining its renowned DNA and off-road capability. The result is a compelling 4×4 that resonates with customers on an emotional level.”

“We are incredibly proud of the Defender and the global design team behind this vehicle, an incredibly deserving win for the Defender.”
