Maruti Jimny Pulls a Toyota Fortuner and Truck

The video showing the incredible off-roading capabilities of the Maruti Suzuki Jimny has been shared on Instagram by CarsBlog India on their page. It starts off with a white-colored Maruti Suzuki Jimny being strapped to a stuck Toyota Fortuner type 1 on a snowy mountain road. In the video, we can observe that due to the snow and no usage of snow chains, the heavy Toyota Fortuner got stuck on the road, and this is when the Maruti Jimny started pulling the massive Toyota Fortuner up the road.

Now, what’s even more interesting is that the Maruti Jimny was also towing a flatbed truck which was strapped with the Toyota Fortuner. It can be noted that all four tires of the Jimny were spinning, and we can also note the effort put in by the Jimny. Lastly, after the Jimny successfully drags the Toyota Fortuner, it can be observed that the flatbed was also towed out. However, following the initial pull, it can be noted that the truck managed to make a grip on the snowy road and was able to start driving under its own power.

How to Properly Drive in Snowy Conditions?

As we have said on various occasions, driving a car in snowy conditions requires careful attention and preparation to ensure proper safety on the road. If you are planning to take your car on snowy roads, here are the things that you should be aware of in order to become a better driver. Firstly, it is very essential to adjust your driving behavior to the conditions by slowing down and increasing following distances to allow for longer stopping distances. Make sure to execute gentle and gradual accelerating, braking, and steering. This is because sudden maneuvers can lead to loss of control on slippery surfaces.

Additionally, avoid abrupt braking as this can cause the vehicle to skid. Instead, apply brakes gently and early when approaching a stop. Secondly, always ensure that your vehicle is properly equipped for snowy conditions. This includes having winter tires with adequate tread depth to provide better traction on snow and ice. Keep your windshield, windows, and lights clear of snow and ice to maintain visibility.

It is also advisable to carry emergency supplies in your vehicle, such as a shovel, ice scraper, blankets, and a flashlight, in case you get stranded or encounter difficulties. And the most important thing when driving in snow is that your vehicle tires should be equipped with snow chains. Lastly, you have to be extremely mindful of other drivers on the road and adjust your driving to accommodate their actions. Keep a lookout for pedestrians and other vehicles. Also, staying informed about the weather and road conditions before setting out on your journey is very important.
