While this is not the ideal way of testing the build quality of cars, this collision between the two SUVs brings out intriguing results.
In this video, a last-gen Mahindra Bolero is captured testing the build quality of a Range Rover Evoque. Now, these two SUVs belong to the complete opposite ends of the spectrum. Bolero is a popular product from Mahindra that finds application mostly in the semi-urban and rural areas due to its tough built and go-anywhere character. It has been around for years and the sales are still strong. On the other hand, the Range Rover Evoque is seen on people looking for an ultra-luxury premium cabin and modern features with striking looks. What happens when these two are involved in a bit of a tussle?

The right sides of both the SUVs are deformed. The Bolero has clearly experienced more damage that extends to the bumper, headlights, tyre assembly and front fascia. The Evoque, on the other hand, has its front right side damaged a bit and the tyre coming off. This is what was expected considering the fact that the price difference between the two SUVs is around Rs 70 lakh. Not to mention, the Bolero is a decade-old vehicle when there was not too much stress on the safety regulations. Additionally, it was always designed for the semi-urban and rural environments where practicality, utility and affordability are the only rules for mass adoption.
