The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG and the Suzuki Jimny are poles apart and using their name in the same line is not generally considered as sane. The only similarity these two vehicles share is that both of them are SUVs. On one hand is the G63 AMG which is like the Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson of the SUV world while on the other is the Suzuki Jimny which, with all respect, is just a tame sheep in front of the former. Why then are we even making comparisons between these two SUVs? Well, that’s because of the video below by carwow, which pits both of them together in a tug of war, albeit with a twist. Let’s now check out the video before proceeding further.
The result of this unique competition was quite predictable but yet quite interesting. The moment one hears that the G63 AMG is in a tug of war competition with a Jimny, it is quite obvious that the G63 will beat the hell out of the Jimny and that is what happens in the video. But here is the interesting thing, the Jimny then goes on to win the last round, or must we say Jimnys. The first round sees a bright neon shade Suzuki Jimny cling to the rope against the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG. The G63 easily manages to pull the Jimny, while the driver of the Mercedes also reading a newspaper all this while. You see, this round was a child’s play for the Jimny.
The Jimny driver doesn’t lose hope though and brings another friend in a different Jimny to join him in his ordeal against the Mercedes. However, this round also sees the Mercedes managing to pull both the Jimnys, albeit with some effort. Also, the Mercedes driver this time was not reading a newspaper but stuffing down some fast food down his throat. War needs energy we guess. What happens next is that now there are 3 Jimny’s against one Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG. With their combined might, the Jimnys take home the trophy this time, though the G63 AMG still didn’t look as miserable as the Jimny looked in the other rounds.
Talking about engines and power, the Suzuki Jimny is powered by a naturally aspirated 1.5-litre petrol mill that churns out a maximum power of 101 Bhp along with 130 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox along with a host of other off-road kits. Suzuki launched the all-new Jimny last year and it became very popular due to its affordable price tag, decent off-road prowess, and simplistic, no-nonsense motoring approach.
The other SUV here is a proper monster in all senses. The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG gets powered by a 4-litre twin turbo engine, essentially the same that you also get on the Mercedes-AMG GTR. This firebreather of an engine churns out a maximum power of 577 Bhp along with 850 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a new 9-speed dual-clutch gearbox. This new version of the G63 AMG was also launched last year and is among the most powerful and well known SUVs in the world.
Well, what we know now is that it takes 3 Suzuki Jimny’s to defeat one Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG. HEre is another interesting fact though, the Suzuki Jimny costs around ten times less than the biggie Mercedes. So you get 3 Jimny’s along with a lot of spare money that will get you a big garage, lifetime fuel supply along with probably another interesting car. Though, you’ll need 3 drivers too every time you want to feel the combined Jimny power again. Or you can just buy a Mercedes Benz G63 AMG and watch the world burn while you enjoy the brute.
