BMW X3 M40i vs Volvo XC60 Polestar vs Audi Q5e: DRAG RACE
It's time for an SUV drag race - but with a new school vs old school flavour! Representing the new, we have the Volvo XC60 Polestar and Audi Q5e! The Volvo is definitely the better of the two, with a 2-litre turbo engine that combines with an electric motor, it can put down 405hp and 675Nm of torque! As for the old school, we have the BMW X3 M40i! With its straight-six 3-litre turbo, it can produce 354hp and 500Nm of torque! So will the newer hybrids have what it takes to bring down the M40i? There's only one way to find out... LET'S RACE!

    Xc60 did the quarter mile 0.2 secs faster than the S60 with the same drivetrain. I have a feeling that the s60 was not fully charged, unlike the xc60

    Who cares about a few milleseconds! The Polestar XC60 wins on quality and looks. In fact the Audi and BMW are downright ugly in design.

    Why don't you do a drag race and all the challenges with Volvo V90 Cross Country, and Audi A4 All road and maybe Ford Fiesta 1.4 TDCI, VW polo 1.4 TDI and a Corsa all 2004-06. That would be interesting and fun to see.

    The X3 M40i flies and I was surprised to see it beat out the hybrid cars in this test. Sport Plus mode is an absolutely insane and it's still down over 100hp from the X3M. Love the X3 as a daily driver especially with the adaptive suspension. Does everything perfect except wish I could figure out how to disable start stop in comfort mode 2ithout having to push the button everytime...😣

    Look at the q5 start, that is a joke! Is this a start on EV Mode, so the petrol engine kicked in later? The q5 tfsi e is a massive beast from the line, way quicker than this.
