Here’s a video of a tug of war competition between Mahindra Bolero and Scorpio. Watch the video embedded below to know the surprising results.
Mahindra Bolero is one of the most capable and reliable SUVs offered by the carmaker in the Indian market. The SUV is mainly used for commercial purposes by police of different states. Mahindra Bolero was the company’s top-selling SUV last month. Because of its raw-appeal and boxy design, the SUV is still loved by a lot of off-road enthusiasts. On the other hand, Mahindra Scorpio is also one such SUV which is loved by a lot of enthusiasts across the country. The SUV has been ruling the Indian roads since 2002. Mahindra Bolero was much more affordable when it was first introduced in our market back in 2000. Here’s a recent tug of war competition between both the SUVs.
This video is uploaded by a YouTube channel named as PC Lalrem Puia. As you can see in the video that the frame of both the cars is attached via ropes. Afterwards, both the SUVs have to accelerate and the one which drags the other car easily is a clear winner. Another way to conduct this race is one accelerates while other applies the brake. One which manages to pull is the winner. As soon as the video starts, one can easily spot the winner. The Mahindra Scorpio was facing a heavy wheel spin and was trying hard to win the challenge, while the Bolero is at ease. Then the Bolero suddenly started pulling and was able to easily drag the Scorpio. One big reason behind the winning of Bolero was its dual-purpose off-road spec tyres. These tyres might help the car to gain traction. If the same challenge is done on the normal roads, then the Scorpio would have clearly won the race.
Talking about the mechanical spec of both the SUV, the Mahindra Bolero is powered by a 1.5-litre turbo diesel mill, which puts out power and torque outputs of 76 and 210 Nm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed MT. On the other hand, the Mahindra Scorpio is propelled by a 2.2-litre turbo diesel mill that produces 140bhp and 320. Transmission duties are done by a 5-speed MT or a 6-speed MT. In comparison, Scorpio derives power from a much more potent unit.
