Not sure I would do this same type of testing in my car but impressive still.
Can’t understand what the guy is saying but the video does speak for itself.
Would be cool to know what he is actually saying.

Excellent video. Wish I knew if he was using the off road mode. I got to play with it off road a little this summer. But nothing like that. The water test was awesome :) and it handled everything perfectly.

From the speed he is moving I am betting he was using the off road mode.

Mmm I only get German subtitles. I am a premium YouTube member.

Tried in
safari
Apple iPhone app
Nvidia shield tv pro Google app

All 3 only had auto generated German.

Same here.
You can get snippets of what he is saying from what you hear and read in German but I’m sure I’m missing a lot still.

Back on topic, I was surprised no water got into the cabin.
Would love to know if there were and subsequent issues with the rear break pads after the testing was done.

I read a long time ago that if you took a car into deep water you had to re lube it after.

I wonder if it is that way with this car.

I assume the rear breaks are no wetter than when I squirt high pressure water into the wheels with wheel cleaning fluid sprayed on.

Lucky for me my wheels do not stick but I do the braking once to dry after extreme wetness program.

Cool video. The translation makes me wish I knew a native German speaker.

A big question is apparently “the king’s question”
The car is a real “piece of cream”

And I’m dying to know what “hip gold” was.

For English subs I had to flip 2 switches:
- CC on
- Settings -> CC/Subtitles -> auto-translate -> English
I do not see cc/subtitles under settings on either of my two devices.

What were you setting this on?

I want the bad translations darn it :)

I am using Chrome on a PC, but others should work. Go to the video in YouTube. Select CC "ON" - it will now be in German. Now, select the Settings Gear (right next to CC). Select "Subtitles/CC" and choose "Auto-translate". Choose your preferred language and let the hilarity begin!

The tires on the car are Michelin Cross climate SUV. I used to have that tire. Very very good one. I am glad that can be used on our cars.
