The classic in a new design

Defender - The classic is back

Land Rover is unveiling the new version of its best-known model range - the Defender - at the IAA 2019. The new design shows the most powerful Land Rover, classic and modern, at the same time. With a range of additional packages, Defender can be customized to suit your lifestyle. For example, one of the packages comes with a side mounted, extendable roof ladder for easy access to the roof as an upgrade.

To ensure it is easily accessible yet safely stowed away, a housing has been developed to match Defender's design, safely accommodate the ladder and have as little impact on the vehicle's aerodynamics as possible.

The choice of materials was based on a wide range of weather conditions, cleaning the vehicle with a variety of cleaning agents and mechanical strength due to the air currents during the journey.

Due to SCHWARZ's long term experience in international tool procurement, as well as the optimization of components for manufacturability and cost efficiency, the best possible solution with regard to these aspects was developed in cooperation with our customer KIPP CAR COMFORT SYSTEMS.

Furthermore, the IATF 16949 certification of Gebr. Schwarz, which we received again in July 2019, our whole customer base benefit from stable and efficient processes.
