TASK 3 ARTICULATION
Here, the Thar comes out tops although this time it was the Gypsy that was at a disadvantage thanks to its massive tyres. However, when it came to posing for the camera with one wheel in the air, the Thar couldn’t manage much thanks to, again, its road-spec tyres that would just keep spinning away on the loose surface it had to scale. Now, in realistic everyday driving, you don’t need the kind of articulation we’re talking about, but off the road, it matters. And then there’s that enticing thought of being able to, someday, show one of your more appropriate fingers to all that bumper-to-bumper traffic and drive over the divider, taking the south-bound to Goa instead.
Result: Gypsy wins, but it would have been otherwise if it was wearing stock tyres.
