Drag Race – Audi Q2 vs Mahindra XUV700
The YouTuber has selected an empty stretch of road and the two contenders are parked side-by-side. The Audi has a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine with 190 hp / 320 Nm. The XUV also has 2.0-litre turbo petrol with 200 hp / 380 Nm. In the first attempt, there are 3 people in both cars. The XUV700 got a better launch and was ahead for a brief duration. But very soon, the German SUV caught up and raced ahead never to be caught by the Indian SUV again. The YouTuber and his team then decided to load the Audi with more people and the XUV700 will have just the driver to counter-balance the disproportionate weight.
However, the driver of the Audi got an even better launch than the previous attempt. Once ahead, the Audi was untouchable for the rest of the race. However, this was not the interesting part, as everyone has expected this. The sophisticated engine of the Audi was just too capable despite being down of power and torque. They decided to perform a rolling acceleration test thereafter. The aim was to press the accelerator pedal completely when they reach 20 km/h. What happened next was quite unbelievable for everyone. The XUV700 went ahead and stayed ahead for the entire race.
