We find out which of these machismo off-roaders of similar size is better at managing their fuel consumption

The Toyota Fortuner and the Mahindra Scorpio N are two big, feature-loaded and powerful SUVs in the Indian market right now. While they go about it in different ways and are operating on different price points, they appeal to the same buyer. Both these SUVs get the choice of petrol and diesel engines with manual and automatic transmissions.  As high-mileage vehicles, both are expected to cover a lot of kilometres between refills. So, we subjected the diesel automatic 4X2 variants of the top-spec Fortuner Legender and Scorpio N to our real-world efficiency tests. 

Have a look at how thirsty these SUVs really are:
