Mahindra launched the XUV700 last year and it quickly became a popular SUV in its segment. One of the main reasons for its success was its competitive price and several segment-first features. Mahindra XUV700 competes with cars like MG Hector Plus, Hyundai Alcazar, Tata Safari in the segment. We’ve seen several videos of the XUV700’s performance and features online. There are also several drag racing videos for the XUV700. Here we have such a drag racing video where the XUV700 is seen competing with a Mercedes-Benz A-Class limo.
The video was uploaded by Rachit Rojha Vlogs on his YouTube channel. In this video, a vlogger who owns a Mahindra XUV700 competes against a Mercedes-Benz A-Class limo in a drag race. To start the race, the vlogger and his friend take their cars to a closed road. There were no vehicles on the road at the time of the race. Before starting the race, they both drove each other’s vehicles to get a feel for what they are competing against. After taking the car for a short lap, the two line up the cars at the starting line.
Vlogger was driving the Mahindra XUV700 while his friend was in the Mercedes-Benz. The race started and Mahindra XUV700 quickly rolled off the line. It looked like Mahindra might win the race but, in seconds, everything changed. Mercedes-Benz quickly narrowed the gap and took the lead. He maintained the lead throughout the race and won the first moto. Before the race started, the vlogger and his friend mentioned in the video that they had never done anything like this before and that this was their first drag race. They return to the starting line and then prepare for the second round.
On lap two, Mercedes-Benz got off to a better start and took the early race lead. Mahindra XUV700 can be seen behind it, but it could not overtake the SUV at any time. The Mahindra XUV700 rider can be heard saying in the video that he and his XUV700 are unable to shift gears properly. The Mercedes, on the other hand, gets an automatic transmission, which means the driver only has to hold down the accelerator pedal. For the third lap, the drivers swapped cars. The vlogger was now driving the Mercedes while his friend was in the XUV700.
The third and final round begins and, as expected, Mercedes-Benz was in the lead. The Class A sedan won the third round and was announced as the winner of the race. There were several reasons why Mercedes-Benz won the race even though it was competing against a much more powerful vehicle. The Mahindra XUV700 petrol version is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that generates 200 Ps and 380 Nm of peak torque. The petrol version of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan is powered by a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine that generates 160 hp and 250 Nm of peak torque. The weight of the car, the gearbox and also the design of the car helped him win the race.
