- This video shows it going up against the mighty Hummer H2 in an off-roading circuit.
- The results are bound to shock you.
Here is an interesting off-roading challenge involving a Suzuki Jimny and a Hummer H2. Jimny is a world-famous lightweight off-roading SUV that is popular in many international markets for a long time now. On the other hand, the Hummer H2 was a go-to choice for a whole bunch of celebrities a couple of decades ago. It used to come powered by a massive engine with 4×4 capabilities. While this video is a few months old, it’s still relevant for Indian viewers as the 5-door version of the Jimny recently made its India debut. Let us see what happens when these two go head-to-head with each other in an off-roading environment.

Jimny vs Hummer Off-Roading Challenge
The video has been created by Carwow on YouTube. It is one of the biggest and most popular automobile media houses in the world. For this video, the team has lined up a Jimny and a Hummer to conduct a thorough off-roading challenge. For the first round, the two SUVs must race their way up a sharp incline. Due to the weight advantage, Jimny is able to win this round quite comfortably. To check the manoeuvrability of the two SUVs, the second round involves them to go around a track making a sharp U-turn in the least time.

Due to the large turning radius of the Hummer, it came second in this round too. Then, there were activities devised to test the wheel articulation and ground clearance of both SUVs. Here, the Hummer faired slightly better than the Jimny as the latter bottomed out on a couple of occasions. Thereafter, another challenge was thrown at the SUVs to test their hill descent control where the drivers lifted their feet off the brake pedal and the slowest to reach the bottom would win. In this round, Jimny simply decimated the H2.

Finally, the last round included the SUVs travelling up a steep slope covered with loose rocks lying on the track. For this round, both SUVs struggled for traction. After 3-4 attempts, both of them were able to reach the top although it included taking a run-up to gain some momentum first. All in all, Jimny scored 10 points, while the H2 managed to get only 8. The video unequivocally confirms that the Jimny is the better off-roader and also costs less than half of what the H2 does.
