BMW M340i v Audi S4 v Volvo V60 T8 - DRAG RACE
Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
It’s time for another carwow estate drag race!
First up you’ve got Mat in the Volvo V60 T8. It’s got a 2-litre turbocharged engine up front, along with an electric motor at the back. Combined, they can produce 387hp & 640Nm! As for the M340i, with its 3-litre straight-six turbo it’ll put down 374hp & 500Nm.
And then finally we have the Audi S4, which has a 3-litre V6 diesel (😱) which can produce 347hp & 700Nm!
So the M340i may seem down on power and torque compared to the competition, but it does have one advantage… It’s the only car here with launch control! But will it make a difference? You’d better keep watching to find out!

      Could you do a drag race between the current C43 AMG and the C63 & C63S. I’d like to see the difference if any between the 3 cars.

    I love the Audi but its not my cup of tea. I love the Beemer based on its performance and appearance. But the Volvo is my favourite. Whilst its not the best in terms of performance, it's the most aesthetically pleasing inside and out for me.

      @Eirik A Yes! I have the T8 Polestar Engineered and the launch control works well. But yes it is heavy, and the weight is the enemy. But I can ride in cathedral silence, and enjoy one of the best sound system, the Bowers & Wilkins system 😍. And do 5.0l / 100km (47.04 MPG)!!!

    • Eirik A

      @RevoK Knuckle I didn't know this. Thanks for the info. I guess we better try this on our Volvo V60 Polestar Engineered Edition. (T8, AWD, 400hp+)

    • RevoK Knuckle
      RevoK Knuckle

      Volvo have launch control. In the manual - > Activating Launch Make sure that the vehicle is stationary and that the wheels are pointing straight ahead. Put the gear selector in D position. Depress the brake pedal fully. Then fully depress the accelerator pedal. Release the brake pedal within 2 seconds.

    Would be interisting to compare this bull**** diesel S4 to the old B8 petrol S4 just to figure out if really Audi improve its S4 or if they've only done something stupid... (maybe more stupid than their fake exhaust pipe! XD )

    • Tim F
      Tim F

      @Loïc Bach I mean, it’s more effort to put the Diesel engine in it rather than stick with the petrol V6 it gets everywhere else. I think it’s something to do with emissions regulations plus all the money they ploughed into developing that Diesel engine. I think it’s a huge shame, so t get me wrong. The diesel is a great engine but it’s not a performance engine. It’s not just because it’s slower, it’s just not the same. Do S5 drivers really want a diesel? Crazy. At least offer both as options, right?

    • Loïc Bach
      Loïc Bach

      @Tim F So it’s even more stupid they didn’t make the effort for european market... Or at least make hybrid petrol engine to fit restriction...

      I have a B9 S5, petrol V6. The diesel is only for Europe.

  • alanngli

    Turbocharged, supercharged and charged (70% this time) But honestly, while the Volvo works on paper, it doesn’t work on tarmac.

    With the current launch control drag race/ rolling race and braking distance tests... Wouldn’t it be interesting to add a “drag race WITHOUT launch control” ? As most of the real-life car race scenarios on the roads are spontaneous 😊

  • Jerry Xiao

    The Audi is quicker than the Volvo past 120mph likely because electric motors are significantly less efficient at higher rotational speeds and it the electric motor is direct drive, so it has a decreasing horsepower as speed increases.

      @RevoK Knuckle you do. I own one if the new volvos. Because if you dont it will keep throwing it off because of wheel spin. You can do without but it wont work as good

      Yes! And with the launch control, because yes the volvo has launch control... Read the manual @carswow! -> Activating Launch Make sure that the vehicle is stationary and that the wheels are pointing straight ahead. Put the gear selector in D position. Depress the brake pedal fully. Then fully depress the accelerator pedal. Release the brake pedal within 2 seconds.

    Personally although it’s the slowest car here I’d still buy the Volvo over the others, Just because it’s different. Everyone buys the usual German stuff and frankly although they are generally quicker they are incredibly boring to look at. The Volvo is the best looking of the three by some margin, I also think it’s a much nicer place to sit too.
