Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos are currently the most popular mid-size SUV on sale in the country. Both SUVs have several things in common like the engine and platform. They also share several features. Jut like Creta, Kia Seltos also became an instant hit in the market when it was launched in the market. We have seen several comparison videos of these SUVs on the internet. Here we have a video of Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta showing both SUVs engaged in a drag race. This race is conducted to find out which one of these SUV performs better.

The video has been uploaded by Manish Jat on his YouTube channel. The video starts with vlogger showing both the SUVs. The version used in this race are powered by 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generate 115 Ps and 250 Nm of peak torque. The vlogger picks up an empty stretch of road for this drag race. The vlogger is driving the Kia Seltos and his friend is driving the Hyundai Creta.

The race is conducted in four rounds. In the first round, the Kia Seltos takes the lead and maintains it throughout the race. The all-new Hyundai Creta was right behind it but, could not overtake Seltos. Kia Seltos won the first round of this drag race. In the second round, the same thing happened, the Seltos took the lead and maintained in throughout the race.

In the third round, the drivers swap the car and the vlogger is now driving the Creta and his friend is driving Seltos. This is were things get interesting. In third round, the Creta moves off the line quickly leaving Seltos behind. The Creta maintained the lead throughout the race and won third round. In the final round, same thing happened again.

The vlogger can be seen mentioning in the video that, the track on which they were racing was not perfect and had some issues. They searched for several tracks but, they all had stones in it. The one seen in the video is the best they could find for this purpose. That is one of the reason why the drivers were not confident on the track. This is not the first time, they are doing a drag race between Seltos and Creta. They had done similar races in the past but, in that race Seltos won by a huge margin because they forgot to turn off traction control in the Creta.

The Creta and Seltos as mentioned above are powered by the same set of engine and generate same amount of power. Both SUVs even weigh almost the same. The reason why Seltos won the first two rounds an Creta won the other two is because of the experience. In comparison to the vlogger, his friends who were driving the car were may be less experienced and that could be the reason why they were not pushing the car to the limits. Both SUVs are equally capable of winning the race and at the end, it all comes to the one thing who has a better start.
