But the solid arsenal of off-road devices retained, which will allow the new generation of Englishman to compete on equal terms with the brutal conquerors of bad roads from European, Asian and American manufacturers.


Even from the photo it is not difficult to determine that the appearance of the new car is quite different from its predecessor.

«Passer-by» became a little smaller and boasts an abundance of both decorative and purely functional details that distinguish it from other representatives of the brand.

In general, the new body became more angular, and a significant area is occupied by black plastic inserts, performing both decorative and protective functions.

Headlights, large air intake systems and off-road devices complement the new items’ look.

The brightest thing is the muzzle of the new model. Placed high, it can boast of neither length nor width.

But visibility and cross-country ability, due to the named qualities and branded «squareness», is up to the mark. The windshield has outstanding sizes, but it is inclined not very much.

The front of this figure is adorned by large rectangular mirrors with turn signal repeaters, as well as «gills» air intake slots near the front fenders.

All this is intertwined with not the brightest wave-like relief, resting at the bottom with large, widened wheel arches, as well as a solid black plastic protective layer running through the entire perimeter.
