As part of our Expert Review series, we have conducted a 0-100 speed test of most new cars of 2021. We have compiled the 0-100 acceleration time parts to give you an idea of what these new cars have got.
Yes, these cars have different engine types and sizes. We are just having a fun compilation of their speed tests. Here it is.
First up, we have the first sedan launched in 2021, the Changan Alsvin. We reviewed the top-of-the-line Alsvin DCT Lumiere variant and recorded its 0-100 acceleration time at 11 seconds.
Next, we have got the second sedan of this year and the cheapest sedan in Pakistan overall, the Proton Saga. The car’s top-of-the-line Ace Automatic variant achieved 100 kilometers per hour in 13 seconds.
Hyundai’s competitor against Corolla and Civic was also launched this year, and we saw it getting from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.22 seconds.
Hyundai’s other newly launched sedan is up against the likes of Accord and Camry, and its 2.5L variant’s 0-100 acceleration time is 9.72 seconds.
Toyota Yaris is not a newcomer in the market, but we did include it in the 0-100 speed test because why not? Interestingly enough, the top-of-the-line Yaris variant took more time to achieve 100 km/h than Alsvin but less than Saga. It was 11.14 seconds.
Honda Civic RS Turbo
Another not-so-new sedan is also a part of this speed test: the Honda Civic RS Turbo. The car won the whole thing with the fastest 0-100 acceleration time of 8.18 seconds.
Toyota Corolla Cross
After sedans, we have a couple of newly launched SUVs. The first one is Toyota’s hybrid SUV, Corolla Cross, whose Premium High Grade variant went to 100 km/h in 10.15 seconds.
The second SUV is the MG HS, with a 0-100 acceleration time of 11.17 seconds.
DFSK Glory 580 Pro
Next, we have the DFSK Glory 580 Pro, and its 0-100 acceleration time was recorded at 15.13 seconds.
BAIC BJ40 Plus
Lastly, Pakistan’s one and only locally assembled jeep BAIC BJ40 Plus Honorable Edition reached 100 km/h in 9.20 seconds.
Here are the results from fastest to slowest acceleration time.
