It’s time for a hot hatch vs performance SUV drag race!

Now you might be looking at this line-up and thinking it’s a pointless race. However, once we delve a bit deeper at the specs, you’ll see this race might be a bit closer than you thought!

Starting off with the Golf R, it’s powered by a 2-litre 4 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that can deliver 320hp & 420Nm of torque. It’s relatively light, too, weighing in at 1,550kg.

Then we have the Audi, which has double the number of cylinders under the bonnet, where it houses a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 that puts down 507hp and 770Nm of torque. It’s also oh-so-much heavier than the Golf, tipping the scales at 2,250kg!

So sure, the Audi has way more power, but it’s also 700kg heavier! And more importantly, while the Golf will set you back £40,000, it’s only half the price of the Audi! So is it worth paying so much more for that extra power? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

    Love the Golf R ✅ But I am not sold on the cheap looking front seats. Golf’s have been a steady car for VW and would like to see some better options when it comes to one or two options that Audi will offer, at the end of the day most parts fit the the entire lineup in the VW Group

    An interesting quarter mile test would be if both cars had a stage 1 tune, meaning the ecu is delimited and performance optimized. I think the SQ7 would become an absolute monster fully delimited.

    @carwow Hi from Russia! Sorry for my bad English. On Volkswagen, audi, skoda cars, the limit of revolutions during the soundcheck, if the gearbox is in position P. If in position N, then the engine can gain full revs without limit. On the golf R, gearbox was in N mode, so there is no engine RPM limit. I often notice on your videos that the P mode is selected on the car, in this mode they always have an engine rev limit.

    To launch Audi’s hit the traction control button to put it in sport traction mash the brake all the way to the floor and then do the same to the accelerator and then let it build at whatever it’s highest point is mine is 4k and then go. It sounds like he was brake boosting when he said it was creeping up at the line.
