Here, we have a video of a drag race between Tata Harrier and Toyota Innova Crysta. Check out which of these two wins!
At IndianAuto, we love performance. We’ve previously tested the real-world acceleration of plenty of cars, and we’ve also featured videos we found online of different cars competing against other cars for performance supremacy. Here, we have another such video with two competitors in completely different classes – Tata Harrier and Toyota Innova Crysta.

The video we see above was posted by a YouTube channel called ‘Drive King’. The video doesn’t waste any time reaching the meat of the content, and we see the drag race in progression right away. While the Toyota Innova is quite a powerful car, we can see that it is clearly at a disadvantage. It pulls away initially, we a few seconds into the race we see the Tata Harrier gaining the lead quickly. Soon, the Harrier is way ahead, and then we see both the cars encounter some traffic, thus bringing the race to an end. Then we have a second run. Once again, we see that the Harrier starts to pull ahead after a few seconds, and gains a respectable lead.
Tata Harrier is a 5-seater SUV, and is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine. This particular model is the BS4 version, capable of generating 140 PS and 350 Nm of peak power and torque, respectively. It came paired to a 6-speed manual transmission only. Toyota Innova Crysta, on the other hand, is an MPV, available in 7- and 8-seater configurations. There are two engine options on offer here. The first one is a 2.7-litre, inline-4, naturally aspirated petrol engine, capable of generating 163 PS and 245 Nm. The second one is a 2.4-litre, inline-4, turbocharged diesel engine. A 5-speed manual transmission is offered as standard, while a 6-speed automatic is available as optional.
While the drag race was entertaining to watch, it is dangerous to perform such tasks on public roads. While the road was empty for a majority of the portion, there was traffic on it. We wish that the video was shot in an abandoned empty street instead of a highway with traffic, that too with slow-moving tractors. Always ensure your safety before you set out to have fun.
