New Delhi: Mahindra is a car manufacturer that is popularly known for its tough cars. Thar, Scorpio and XUV500, Kia Seltos are some of the popular cars that Mahindra currently sells in the market. As per reports, Mahindra is expected to be launched its brand-new XUV700 in the market later this year. Here we have a video that shows the tug of war between Mahindra XUV500 and Kia Seltos.
The video is uploaded on YouTube by Arun Panwar. Arun mentions in the description that the XUV500 used here is an 8-year-old SUV that has done over 2 lakh km on an odometer. Whereas, Kia Seltos is fairly new. The competition is conducted on two different terrains. First, they try it on a mud road and then on the tarmac.
Arun had tied both the cars using a metal chain. Arun along with his friend tries this tog of war between the two cars Arun sits in Seltos and his friend in XUV500. They both bit to the front and then start pulling each other.
As expected, Mahindra XUV500 pulls Kia Seltos without any problem. Firstly As they were trying this on a loose surface, one of the tyres dug itself in. So, they threw away the piece that got snapped and continues the tug of war. In the second round on the loose mud road, the result remained the same. In fact, XUV500 pulled it for a longer distance than the first round.
In the second experiment, they take the SUVs to a road that was under construction. Just like the first round, Kia Seltos couldn’t win. Arun mentioned in the video he was pushing the Seltos to the limit whereas his friend hardly put any pressure while driving XUV500. XUV500 was clearly the winner.
Mahindra XUV500 is powered by a 2.2 litre mHawk diesel engine that generates 140 Bhp and 330 Nm of torque. Whereas Kia Seltos is powered by a smaller 1.5 litre diesel engine that generates 113 Bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque.
