Drag Race Hyundai Creta vs Skoda Slavia
In the first attempt, the two vehicles have their ACs turned OFF and the Traction Control has been disengaged. The launches of both the cars are comparable but the turbo of the Creta swiftly propels it ahead in no time. Once in the lead, it gives no chances to the Slavia to catch up. Creta emerges as a clear winner after round 1. For the second round, the AC in the Creta is switched ON but it is kept OFF in Slavia. This time, however, the lag in the Creta is a bit too prominent and the Slavia trounces the SUV convincingly. The sedan remained ahead from the beginning till the end.
