It is not every day that one gets to witness a drag race between two three-row SUVs. Check out the video of this race to see who came out on top.
Recently, HMIL launched the Hyundai Alcazar in the Indian market. The three-row SUV comes in three trims (Prestige, Platinum and Signature). The Hyundai Alcazar is powered by a 2.0-litre four-pot petrol (159bhp/ 192 Nm) and a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine (115bhp/ 250 Nm). For transmission, the company has added a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. You get three different drive modes (Comfort, Eco, Sport) and three different traction control modes (Sand, Snow, Mud). The SUV is said to reach from 0-100kmph in just 9.5 seconds.

As you can see in the YouTube video by Aayush SSM, the Hyundai Alcazar 2.0 litre petrol variant (manual) takes on the Kia Carens 1.4-litre turbo petrol variant (manual). In the first round, the Kia Carens take the lead from the start and maintain it. The second round also produced a similar result. After multiple attempts, the Kia Carens was a clear winner overall. The Hyundai Alcazar could not manage to win any round or even offer a good challenge. While the Alcazar generates more power than Carens, it does not deliver it as aggressively as Carens. It is to be noted that such races are conducted by professionals with safety precautions. Trying such stunts could lead to serious consequences.

Both the Kia Carens and Hyundai Alcazar are based on the same platform. However, the Kia Carens are powered by 1.5-litre petrol (115PS/ 144Nm), 1.4-litre turbo-petrol (140PS/ 242Nm), and 1.5-litre turbo-diesel engine (115PS/ 250Nm) options. For transmission, the company has added a 6-speed manual transmission as a standard option. While the 1.5-litre diesel engine is paired with a 6-speed torque converter (automatic transmission), the 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine comes with 7-speed DSG (automatic transmission).
