The video has been uploaded by Mundodi VLOGS on their YouTube channel. The brief video exhibits a Skoda Fast approaching a stream and crossing the opposite aspect. Skoda Fast does it with none issue. The water was truly fairly deep and the bumper of the automobile was touching the water. There have been additionally rocks underneath the water. The motive force slowly strikes safely over rocks and waves to the opposite aspect. It was fully full of passengers and eventually a Honda Metropolis can also be seen on the opposite aspect. Evidently the Metropolis too crossed the identical water crossing a couple of minutes again and was ready for the Skoda Fast to reach.
The Skoda Fast is a household sedan and it has a floor clearance of 163 mm. Not solely this, these water crossings could be extraordinarily harmful.
