Mahindra Thar may well be a capable off-roader but that doesn’t warrant people to drive on dividers on the road like this driver did.
Mahindra Thar has, unintentionally, performed a side-impact crash test on the MG Hector. The video shows the two SUVs after the impact. Thar has a GNCAP safety rating of 4 stars, while Hector has not been crash-tested yet. Despite that, it has performed well in some unfortunate scenarios as mentioned by the YouTuber.

Since the Thar hit the Hector head-first, its airbags were deployed. There is some damage to the front profile of the Thar including the bumper and bonnet. On the other hand, Hector was hit on the side but still absorbed the impact quite well. It didn’t let the damage seep through to the cabin. Thankfully, no one was injured in this event. This is yet another instance where an MG SUV has performed well putting an end to the conclusions that people drew about it being a Chinese car with the poor build quality.
