Who's ready for a hot hatch drag race?! We've got the new VW Golf GTD going up against the Octavia vRS \u0026 the BMW 120d!

Now we know what you're thinking... And yes, you're right, they're all diesels. But wait! Just because they're diesel doesn't mean this won't make for an interesting drag race. Just check out how evenly matched these three competitors are...

First up we've got Mat in the GTD. It's powered by a 2-litre turbocharged diesel, which can produce 200hp \u0026 400Nm. As for the Octavia vRS? Well, it's also powered by a 2-litre turbocharged diesel, and just like the GTD, it can put down 200hp \u0026 400Nm!

And last up we have the BMW. It's also powered by a 2-litre turbocharged diesel, and while it matches the others on producing 400Nm of torque, it's oh-so slightly down on power, at 190hp.

So there's no denying they're pretty evenly matched, especially when you consider they're all FWD, they all weigh around 1,500kg, and they all cost around £32,000! But can you guess which will come out on top? You'll have to keep watching to find out!

    Keep these diesel drag races going. Preferably at short piers until they’re all gone so people with diesels won’t keep telling us why lower fuel costs have anything to do with driving cars. I’m pretty sure my local will serve me urine for free but I’ll stick to the beer.

    These diesels will depreciate like stones. People rave about fuel economy but always forget about the facts: service is more regular, diesel particulate filter replenish is expensive and mandatory, when you floor it they actually aren’t economical, they sound rough, handle like bags of shit due to the weight of the engine, and the resale value of diesels is getting worse. Diesel tax is set to come in in the next 12 months. I wouldn’t touch a diesel hot hatch, it’s false economy.
