In terms of appearance, the guards inherited the design of the Land Rover minimalism, the car line is very simple, but it is this simple, can have a longer vitality. In terms of vehicle positioning, with the birth of a new generation of guards, the Land Rover family is divided into three directions, one is the luxury style represented by Range Rover, one is the multi-functional style represented by the discovery, and the other is the hard-core and durable represented by the guards. style.
The shape of the new car is completely different from the earliest exposed DC100 concept car because Land Rover's design team adopted consumer feedback in the later stage, and finally got such a hard-core SUV with a model. Land Rover hopes that the guards will be authentic, but at the same time, they must adapt to the trend of the times. The front and rear of the car use a large number of vertical lines, minimalist air intake grille and front surround to make the visual tougher. The bonnet does not have a squat structure, but an embedded shape. The air intake is designed on the left side, so the mesh is not fake, but the right side of the mesh grill is virtual. The wading depth of the new car reaches 900mm. With the wading mode, the road can be judged by the computer to help the driver pass the deepwater area.
The flat waistline on the side reduces the visual center of gravity, and the door handle does not use a hidden design, which is consciously designed by the designer's preferences. The 90 version has a wheelbase of 2.59 meters and the 110 version has a wheelbase of 3.02 meters. The whole vehicle is designed to achieve the golden ratio as much as possible, thus providing a more perfect visual experience.
