Toyota Fortuner vs Tata Harrier Facelift Drag Race
This video comes from Rohan Makania on YouTube. He has the two SUVs side-by-side. For the first round, both SUVs have their Traction Control settings OFF, AC OFF and Sports Mode ON. In essence, these are the sportiest settings of both SUVs. As soon as the drivers press the accelerator pedals, the Fortuner zooms past the Harrier. It stays ahead for the entire race. A similar trend emerges in the second round too. Therefore, to give some advantage to the Harrier, they ask the Fortuner driver to switch to Normal Mode and switch ON the AC. Interestingly, the result remains the same. Hence, the Fortuner is the clear winner.

What We Think
Recently, YouTubers have shown a growing enthusiasm for utilizing drag races as a means to assess and compare the capabilities of various automobiles. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to understand that depending exclusively on drag races for such evaluations may not be the most prudent course of action. This apprehension arises from the potential for drag races to inflict lasting harm on vehicles, given that the majority of cars are not designed for prolonged, high-speed, straight-line racing. Consequently, we strongly discourage any endeavours to engage in drag races with your personal vehicle. In truth, most drivers refrain from pushing their cars to such extreme limits, primarily out of safety concerns.
