The British YouTube channel Carwow showed on video a drag race between the new Range Rover, Audi SQ7, Bentley Bentayga, and Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S. The strongest was identified by the results of races from a place for a quarter of a mile on asphalt, a couple of cross-country races starts from 50 miles per hour (80 kilometers per hour) for half a mile, and the final test was an assessment of the effectiveness of brakes when slowing down from 100 miles per hour (161 kilometers per hour) to a complete stop.
The top version of the new Range Rover V is equipped with a 4.4-liter BMW engine. The unit is configured for 530 horsepower and 750 Nm, the SUV weighs 2510 kilograms and costs 138 thousand pounds.
At the other pole is a Mercedes-AMG GL63 S. The German crossover is almost 100 kilograms lighter and a little cheaper: prices start from 124 thousand pounds. Under the hood is a 4.0-liter “Bi-turbo eight” with a capacity of 612 horsepower and a torque of 850 Nm.

Volkswagen Group offers technically similar Bentley Bentayga V8 and Audi SQ7 in the UK. Both cars have the same 4.0-liter engine with a torque of 770 Nm, but on Audi, the power is limited to 507 horsepower, and Bentley develops 550 horsepower.
The SQ7 is the cheapest and lightest crossover from the quartet. A car with a curb weight of 2265 kilograms can be bought for 81 thousand pounds. Bentley, on the contrary, is the most expensive: the British flagship will cost 182 thousand pounds. Bentayga weighs 2415 kilograms.
There were no Mercedes-AMG equals in asphalt racing, but the situation changed on the grass and other crossovers fought for leadership. The result of the brake test turned out to be curious: the deceleration efficiency of luxury crossovers is very different.
