I unintentionally went some Softroading/Offroading today. Observations-
1>XUV 1st gear is too fast even at idle. Thats where need of Low range is felt. I'll make sure my next car is proper 4x4 with LSD & low range.
2>Massive torque can take 30 degree inclines in 2nd gear idle. Other cars will clip off.
Even 35 degree inclines is possible in XUV.
3> Offroading is not about Grip(Unless you're mudding), Its more about Wheel articulation & GC.
Initial Impressions on Falken Widpeak ATs (Offroad)-
Shallow river crossing- good
30 deg unpaved incline (Dusty)- Zero Wheel spin
Large Potholes- Good but hard feeling
Grass- No problem at all.
Puncture Resistance on Sharp stones- Very good.
