Which of the crossovers will be faster – Skoda Karoq or Nissan Qashqai?

February 3, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Skoda Karoq and Nissan Qashqai are very popular crossovers in the European automobile market. But which of them is faster – that is the question asked by foreign journalists.

  Drag races (direct time races) are designed to set two comparatively comparable cars against each other, in order to find out whose dynamic characteristics are better. We are used to seeing sports cars at such competitions, some very powerful supercars, or even hypercars that “sort things out” on some abandoned runway.

But in fact, many of us need more practical everyday cars that can do much more than just give you some exciting minutes in one race.

 That’s why the Motor1.com team decided to compare two popular crossover models and find out which one is actually faster.

So, this time, in the drag racing competition, two of the most popular C-segment crossovers on the Old Continent will participate: the Czech Skoda Karoq and the Japanese Nissan Qashqai. The Japanese rival is equipped with a 1.3-liter turbo engine, while the Skoda has a 1.5-liter TSI analog with four cylinders. On paper, the Qashqai crossover is more powerful – its engine can produce 160 horsepower versus 150 horsepower, which Karoq boasts. It is also important to note that both cars are equipped with dual-clutch automatic transmissions.

 As you can see, the start of the race for the Skoda crossover is not the best, and the reason for this is that at the time of launch, the DSG transmission did not immediately start working. We won’t tell you which car will win this race – watch the video.
