Drag Race: Renault Clio RS18 vs Volkswagen Polo GTI

Who is ready for a warm-to-mildly-hot set of drag races? Well, we're going to post them anyway. Here's the first one, where the limited edition Renault Clio RS18 takes on the Volkswagen Polo GTI.

Over the next four weeks, we'll be rolling out a 4 part video series, featuring some of the hottest (warmest?) hatches available right now in South Africa. It's called the Ultimate Warm Hatch Shootout, and it's exclusive to Cars.co.za.

Stay tuned and subscribe to be the first to see two more drag races and a track race featuring the 2018 Polo GTI, the Renault Clio RS F1, the Mini Cooper S and the very special Toyota Yaris GRMN.

In this video, the Polo and the Clio go head to head on the quarter-mile drag strip. The race took place at sea level on a cold day, so Ashley Oldfield and Ciro De Siena braved the elements to bring you this cracking race.
