Harrier was one of the most anticipated SUVs from Tata Motors that launched last year. It quickly became popular among buyers because of its looks, features and pricing. Toyota Innova on the other hand belongs to an entirely different segment but is famous among customers for its low cost of maintenance, comfort and a bullet proof engine. We have seen many drag race videos in the past and here we have one such race between the Harrier and Toyota Innova Crysta.
The video has been uploaded by Drive King on their youtube channel. The vlogger has chosen a straight stretch of highway for this drag race. The competitor here are the BS4 Tata Harrier and Innova Crysta. It is not known whether the Crysta is a petrol and diesel version. The race is conducted in two rounds. First round starts and from what we can see from the video it seems like Toyota Innova Crysta was quick off the line.
Within seconds, the Harrier caught up and smoothly overtakes Crysta from the right side. Harrier maintained the lead through out the stretch and won the round. Before starting the second round, Innova Crysta took the right lane and it is not known whether they swapped drivers as well. The second round starts and we see similar result once again. Innova Crysta moves off faster the line and Harrier overtakes it.
One of the factors that is leaving Innova Crysta behind is its weight itself. In comparison to Tata Harrier, the Toyota Innova Crysta is much more heavier. This definitely affects the acceleration and top speed. By looking at the result it seems like the Toyota Innova used here was 2.4 litre diesel variant which generates 148 Bhp and 343 Nm of torque.
The Harrier on the other hand has a BS4 2.0 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generates 138 Bhp and 350 Nm of peak torque. The Harrier has a slightly more torquier engine than the Innova Crysta but the weight advantage advantage meant Harrier could easily win the race. As seen in the video, the race was conducted on an open road which is dangerous. We do not recommend conducting such races and is always better to opt for a private track or a closed section of the road to conduct such races.
