Mahindra Thar vs Scorpio N – Tug of War
This video has been created by Arun Panwar on YouTube. In this video, the team has two new vehicles, Thar and Scorpio N. Both these have 4×4 modes and are diesel variants. In the first half of the video, the YouTuber decides to perform the event at an off-road location on mud. In that case, both SUVs experienced wheel spin causing them to dig the surface. The tyres were getting sunk in the mud due to a lack of traction. Therefore, the team decided to move to a new location with a proper tarmac road.

At this location, the traction was never an issue. The team decided to conduct numerous rounds on this surface. However, the Thar was able to completely trounce the Scorpio N each time. Only in 1 round was the Scorpio N able to defeat and pull the Thar. Even the YouTuber was shocked to see the capabilities of the Thar despite being low on power and torque compared to the Scorpio N.
