Suzuki Jimny released off-road against GeländewagenJuly 23, 2019
Two SUVs from completely different price segments fought in the mud
The light and compact Suzuki Jimny of the new generation is not inferior in cross-country Mercedes-AMG G 63 with a 585-horsepower engine – this was proved by the authors of the Carwow channel by comparing cars in serious off-road conditions. Despite the difference in power and technology, Jimny hung on the tail of Geländewagen, and coped with some obstacles more confidently.
Frame Suzuki Jimny is inferior to the Geländewagen in power: it is equipped with a 1.5-liter gasoline engine of 102 horsepower. The advantage of an SUV is its low weight (just over one ton) and short overhangs. Mercedes-AMG G 63, in turn, is equipped with a four-liter V8 with two turbochargers, the impact of which is 585 hp. The mass of the SUV is 2.5 tons.
See how both cars cope with off-road sections: where the driver of the Geländewagen is cautious and slows down (especially when driving through deep puddles), the Jimny skips almost without braking. However, in relatively straight sections, the light SUV lacks the power to keep up with the Mercedes-AMG G 63.
This is not the first Jimny competition with Mercedes-AMG G 63 from Carwow. Back in April of this year, cars fought in the re-tightening of the rope: first, a German SUV tried to pull one Suzuki, and then three at once.
