Youtube in the recent times has been a hub for like mind people to communicate through and express themselves. Auto enthusiast community over the internet keeps on experimenting with cars and another such video trended again,when Yagya Sharma pitted a new gen swift against XUV 300 . Both the cars were petrol and ready to race.
Yagya Sharma has been a venerable name when it comes to proving cars worth, he keeps on uploading such videos where cars go head to head to prove their worth. The race was conducted in 4 rounds once with the Air Conditioning on then switched off and then at the end Xuv 300 was given fair advantage by seating 2 passengers including the driver in the Suzuki swift.
The swift is powered by a 1.2 liter 4cylinder engine produces a max BHP of about 88@ 6000 Rpm and peak torque of 113 Nm @4400 rpm. While the XUV300 is also powered by a 1.2 liter engine producing 108 BHP @5000 rpm and 200 Nm of torque in-between 2000-3500 rpm. The XUV-300 has the advantage in terms of number let’s see how both cars will perform.
In the video there wasn’t s a run in which Swift didn’t prove to be the superior and faster car in every run the swift took an advantage of couple of seconds. Even when the air conditioning in the Swift was switched on the car flew past the XUV300 like a rocket.
Reason for the win
The Utter Reason why the swift always left theXUV300 behind even after being under powered was that of Power to weight ratio. While the XUV 300 might have more power but it weighs 1307 kg . at the same time the swift weighs any where in-between 875-905 kg . now even though the Xuv has more power it loses because of being heavy. While the swift even after being under powered can stretch its legs further.
Although the car were owned privately by the participants its 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.
