Autocar pits mighty Range Rover Autobiography against puny Suzuki Jimny in a mud bath

Off road performance is not just about electronics and raw power, it seems

Act surprised: the all-powerful Range Rover Autobiography might not be much better in hard off-road than the little Suzuki Jimny, as the guys from Autocar found out

Of course, off-road enthusiasts already knew that the ~ £15,000/ €16,000 Suzuki Jimny, with its puny 1.3-litre, 84 bhp (85 PS) engine, can go pretty much everywhere, due to its reduced weight and excellent approach (34 degrees), breakover (31 degrees) and departure angles (46 degrees). And all this despite its laughable 110 Nm of torque. But the guys from Autocar wanted to see if it's a match for the much more powerful, £120,000  Range Rover Autobiography in hardcore off-road conditions.

The latter has a 334 bhp (339 PS) 4.4-litre V8 and boasts 700 Nm of torque, and also comes with a gazillion off-road electronic systems that allow the most hapless driver to find his way around all sorts of obstacles. Well, at least in theory. In practice... just watch the entertaining video below ending up in a mud bath with only one winner.
