The sub-4 meter SUV segment is one of the most hotly contested SUV segments in the country. Almost every major manufacturer has marked its presence in this segment with the most recent being the Hyundai Venue. While performance is not counted as a criterion for buying a sub-4 meter car, it is always better to have a car that won’t run out of breath while undertaking a truck on the highway. For the same, here is a video by WZ Top speed which compares the top speed of the Hyundai Venue, Mahindra XUV300, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and the Hyundai Creta. Let’s now take a look at the video to see which among them turns out to be the winner.
Now many of you might be thinking why we are considering the Hyundai Creta as a sub-4 meter SUV. That is not the case though and the only reason it is present here is that the guy who made the video decided to do so. Nonetheless, it is now a competition of three prominent sub-4 meter SUV against the Hyundai Creta which sits a segment higher. Before we start the comparison, let’s tell you that the Venue and Creta here are petrol-powered while the Mahindra XUV300 and the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza are diesel-powered. Let’s now check the top speeds of all these SUVs as shown in the video above.
First up is the Hyundai Venue, which did a top gig of 180 km/h but we feel it could have gone a bit higher if the throttle was kept pinned to the floor. Next up is the Mahindra XUV300, which is also the safest SUV of the segment in terms of safety features offered. The XUV300 attains a top speed of slightly below 185 km/h, which is comparable to the Venue’s top speed. The Maruti Suzuki Brezza, though, had a top speed of 170 km/h while the Hyundai Creta touched 180 km/h. So while we have 3 SUVs here that go slightly above the 180 km/h mark, the slowest among the four is the Vitara Brezza which goes to a maximum of 170 km/h. Note that all these results are according to this video only and may have different values in other tests.
Coming to the specifications of the cars used here, The Hyundai Venue here uses the 1.0 litre, 3 cylinders turbocharged unit that puts out 118 Bhp of power along with 172 Nm of torque and comes paired to a 7-speed DCT unit. Next up is the XUV300 which is powered by 1.5-litre diesel engine producing 115 Bhp of power and 300 Nm of peak torque. The Vitara Brezza gets powered by the 1.3-litre DDiS diesel engine that churns out 89 Bhp of power and 200 Nm of peak torque. Lastly, the Hyundai Creta petrol is powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine that puts out 122 Bhp of power along with 151 Nm of torque.
