Boxy profile
Upgraded interior
Legendary capability
Two body styles

Cons
Turbo-4 for the big Defender 110? Pricey off-roader Odd looks at the rear Interior comfort is a question

Land Rover reopens the book on one of its most iconic nameplates with the all-new 2020 Defender. Its boxy shape and retro details combine with design language found on modern Land Rovers to create an appearance that's both sophisticated and nostalgic. While the 2020 Defender looks like an ordinary crossover, it has serious off-road capabilities and rugged equipment that help it live up to its go-anywhere heritage.

High fuel economy for a luxury crossover SUV

Cons
Third-row space is tight for anyone other than small kids
Less overall cargo capacity than competitors
Touchpad controller is distracting to use

Is 2021 your year to make the step to a hybrid? The Lexus RX450h Luxury makes it a comfortable and easy journey, albeit a rather unexciting one.

Pros
The best looking Lexus (aside from LC500) - modern and stylish inside and out
Effortless hybrid drivetrain
Plenty of kit
Quiet and comfortable in every environment

Cons
Thirsty V6 offset by hybrid, but not as much as you'd like
CVT dulls the driving experience
Getting pretty spendy for a car that starts in the $70k range
1990s rear-view camera needs to go
