BMW X3 M40i vs Volvo XC60 Polestar vs Audi Q5e: DRAG RACE

It's time for an SUV drag race - but with a new school vs old school flavour! Representing the new, we have the Volvo XC60 Polestar and Audi Q5e! The Volvo is definitely the better of the two, with a 2-litre turbo engine that combines with an electric motor, it can put down 405hp and 675Nm of torque! As for the old school, we have the BMW X3 M40i! With its straight-six 3-litre turbo, it can produce 354hp and 500Nm of torque! So will the newer hybrids have what it takes to bring down the M40i? There's only one way to find out... LET'S RACE!

  • Ehmm how generous of you giving the Volvo & Audi 1 win each? They lost all the three races. Didn't the BMW passed you before you said brake in de 2nd race.>?. .helloooo -*&*%^@&#^!@*()$&)#$..

  • It’s annoying that Matt didn’t set the Volvo up properly. Polestar Drive mode, traction control off. That Volvo is quick despite it’s heft. Also, the only true opposite number for the Volvo P* is the Audi Q5 e, as the BMW doesn’t have a hybrid power train.

  • Volvo drives like a cheap japanese car on US pavements BMW, Audi and Mercedes all ride much better... They need to soften the suspension at this price level because their elegant look and interior doesn't match the luxury quiet ride that mosy people would look for in this segment..

    jackjackMuaj më parë
  • From what I realized, in the drag race the Volvo was not in Polestar mode but in the Hybrid, which is not the fastest! In resumption tests, when Polestar mode was activated, the regenerative brake was also applied, which drastically reduces performance for obvious reasons - the car is braking !; both errors can be seen on the panel, where you read 'Hybrid', during the Drag Race and you see the letter 'B' for brake (regenerative) in the second test of resumption, so the Volvo did even worse! The presenter was not familiar enough with the Volvo!

  • Volvo is the best looking, has the best interior, and its still fast enough and great in the corners. Id take it plenty fast enough for a mid size suv.
