There are several videos of drag races available online. There are videos of cars and bikes racing against each other and we have featured some of them on our website. Here we have one such video where Jeep Compass diesel manual and a Hyundai Creta diesel automatic SUV is competing against each other in a drag race. Jeep Compass is a premium SUV and is positioned a segment above Hyundai Creta. Compass is powerful as well. Which one would win the race? Let’s check out the video to find out.
The video has been uploaded by Vivaan Tagra on their YouTube channel. In this video, vlogger talks about his plan to do the drag race and also the technical specification. The Jeep Compass seen here in the video is a diesel manual SUV. It is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generates 170 Ps and 350 Nm of peak torque. The Hyundai Creta on the other hand uses a smaller 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generates 115 Ps and 250 Nm of peak torque.
On paper it looks like the Jeep Compass is going to be the clear winner. Both the SUVs were lined up for the race. They chose an empty road for the race with no other vehicles on it. The vlogger was sitting inside the Jeep Compass while his friend was in the Hyundai Creta. Both the SUVs had 2 passengers in it. The cars were lined up and the Creta was in the Eco mode. The race starts and surprisingly, Hyundai Creta takes the lead. Jeep Compass driver can be seen pushing the car hard to overtake Creta but the gap between both the SUVs keeps on increasing.
The Jeep Compass could not get a good launch which meant, Creta was the winner of the first round. The Creta was put in Comfort mode and the Jeep Compass has no such drive modes. The cars were lined up and the race starts. Unlike the first round, the Jeep Compass driver managed to get a good launch for the SUV. Both Creta and Compass were right next to each other and were competing for the lead. It was very close from the beginning itself. After covering half of the distance, Jeep Compass finally took the lead and won the race by a very small margin.
Power delivery in both the SUVs is different and that is one of the reason why Creta managed to give a tight competition in the second round. For the third round, the Creta was in Sport mode and the driver’s remain the same. In third round, the Jeep Compass driver could not get a good launch and that meant, the Creta immediately took the advantage. Creta won the third round and the vlogger called for one more round so that the Compass can get a good launch. Both the SUVs line up and they start racing again. Just like in the second round, Hyundai Creta and Jeep Compass were next to each other. For few seconds, Hyundai Creta pulled ahead but as the speeds increased, Jeep Compass started overtaking the car and won the last round by a small margin.
Jeep Compass performed very well in the race. Hyundai Creta performed even better despite having a smaller less powerful engine. The reason behind its good performance was the automatic transmission, less weight and also the power delivery. The power delivery in Creta was a lot more aggressive than that of Jeep Compass.
