weird question...
« on: December 07, 2004, 12:48:16 PM »
guys and girls, a friend of mine once asked this, it may be a stupid question to some, but i was quite icurious on the answer...
he asked me:

"given these 'soft' utes like the RAV4, Outlander, CR-V, and XTrail...bone stock, which has the best off-road potential of the lot?"

i told him:
"hey, those things aren't for serious off-road stuff, you'd break them in the process...if you took them to a NASFOR course like on TV. off-road driving is for the REAL off-roader, not some cute little AWD"

now, he's been asking me the same thing for a week now,
i'd appreciate some insights to my friend's question...
thanks!

I don't know which has the best offroad potential but I know which has the least.  The CRV's "realtime 4x4" would bog it down in the mud soonest.

haha! matigas ang ulo ng friend mo!  ;D


anyway, palagay ko ang pinaka-"capable" sa mga soft-roaders ngayon ang Xtrail. medyo convincing yung mga tests na ginawa dun.  ::)

Accdg to Suzuki  the Vitara is a true blue 4x4 equipped with transfer case and a separate frame from body structure (not monocoque).

Hands down, Vitara/Grand Vitara nga.  Pero, would you still consider this as a "soft-ute"?

fifth gear (top gear's rival) made a comparison of this earlier this year. they made a number of tests, the last one would determine which is the most capable of them all during off-roading and the xtrail came the winner, followed by the rav4 then the 4x4 crv.

thanks pipz!

the x-trail does look it can handle the off road stuff
another friend did mention the Vitara...guess i lost account of it...the Vitara AFAIK handles ok...

one of my friends do have a RAV-4...good enough for everyday use, but a bit bouncy on unpaved roads...anyway who wouldn't bounce around... ;)

the CR-V...my friend thought that it was a fire breathing dragon on the rugged roads...i'll let him discover the error of his ways... ;) thanks!

haven't heard anything about the outlander though...it's cute IMHO, but i don'know much about it...AutoFocus said it has a 2.4L I4 SOHCV engine with 136hp...but on Yahoo! (automobile section) it's listed as 160hp...kinda weird if they have the same engine to start with...

thanks again!
