Hyundai Venue Diesel VS Maruti Suzuki Swift Petrol Drag Race : Can You Guess The Winner

Drag Race, Swift VS Venue

Every other day we find new videos over the internet about Drag races in India and different cars from different segments being pitted together. Today we saw a video by Pratham Shokeen which pitted two cars from the same segment together Hyundai Venue Diesel VS the Maruti Suzuki Swift.

Engine Specifications

Both the cars were privately owned by the competitors and ready to race, the Maruti Suzuki swift is powered by a 1.2 litre 4 cylinder engine which produces about 88 bhp and about 113nm of torque. While at the same time the Hyundai Venue Diesel is powered by a 1.5 litre UC CRDI  4 cylinder engine which produces 99 Bhp @4000 RPM with a peak torque output of 240 NM 1500 RPM . And Swift of course is lighter then the Hyundai Venue. On paper there is no way that the Swift can beat the Venue let’s find out what happened in the race.

The Race

During the race swift gained a couple car lengths on the Venue as soon as the race started. Then in the second run again the Venue was driven after exchanging drivers still the swift caught the Hyundai and gained a lead. After that both the cars were raced again and the swift won. The reason for the victory Swift had was that swift has a profound power to weight ratio which helps it being a faster car. While the Venue has a heavier body and less aerodynamic dimensions which means that the car lags down a little before pushing along its weight past the Swift.

Safety precautions

Although the car were owned privately by the participants it’s not advisable to conduct such races on public roads. The danger of there being accidents always looms close. Also if proved as this video once published can ,that the owner was in a pursuit of testing the top speed or trying to do a timed run in case of an accident the insurers might turn hesitant to help. 

Be safe and ensure others safety as well first.
