The Toyota Innova Crysta in this video is powered by a 2.8-litre oil-burner, which develops power and torque outputs of 173 PS and 360 Nm. On the other hand, the Mahindra XUV500 is propelled by a 2.2-litre diesel engine that produces 155 PS of peak power and 360 Nm of peak torque. As soon as the race starts, Innova Crysta effortlessly overtakes the Mahindra SUV and remains on the first position till the finish line. As you can see in the video that the Toyota Innova Crysta wins first round of the race by a huge margin. In the second round, it clearly shows that why should you avoid doing drag races on public roads. One can see a big truck coming from the opposite direction, which forces Innova to change lanes and come in front of the XUV500.

As a result, the launch of Mahindra XUV500 got delayed and Innova Crysta again wins the race. The Toyota MPV is around 200 kgs lighter than the XUV500. On paper, the torque outputs of both the cars are the same, but the Innova Crysta is 20 PS more powerful. Moreover, even in the top speed run, Innova Crysta would be a clear winner. Due to the BS6 emission norms, Mahindra discontinued the petrol trim of XUV500 in India. The upcoming new-gen XUV500 will be completely different from its predecessor. It’ll sit on a new platform and will have better handling characteristics.
