Drag Race: VW Golf GTI TCR vs Hyundai i30 N

In this episode of our hot-hatch drag race shootout, Volkswagen's Golf TCR is pitted against the Hyundai i30 N. Can the TCR claim its first win after losing to the Honda Civic Type R? Let's find out!

In our first episode of this hot-hatch showdown, Volkswagen's 213 kW/380 Nm Golf GTI TCR lost to the potent 228 kW / 400 Nm Honda Civic Type R with excessive wheel-spin evident off the line. 

Now, the Golf GTI TCR will look to claim its first win as it goes up against Hyundai's i30 N. The Korean hot-hatch is not as powerful as the Golf GTI TCR and comes to the start line with 202 kW and 353 Nm and equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission while the TCR makes use of a snappy 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. 

Enjoy the race!
