Mahindra Thar vs Toyota Fortuner in Tug War
The video has been uploaded on YouTube. In the first attempt, the SUVs are in their 4×2 mode with traction control and AC OFF. As seen in the video, there is no clear winner and the result is a solid draw. In the second attempt, the SUVs are set to 4×4 mode but with a high ratio setting. The traction control and AC continue to remain OFF. The Fortuner is able to pull the Thar this time around and is a clear winner. In this third attempt, the traction control and AC settings remain OFF but the cars are set to their most aggressive off-road mode with 4×4 low. Again, the higher power and torque of the Fortuner enables it to pull the Thar and win the round, as well as the match.
