Recently here automatic+ we reveal the list of the 10 slowest cars for sale in Brazil. But now it’s time to show more speed. So that the list is not only boring with millionaire sports cars, only models that are produced in our country were classified. Even cars from Argentina or Mexico could not enter this top 10 list.
The data was collected by our partners at the bird according to the official information provided by the car manufacturers.
1. BMW X3 M40i and X4 M40i – 4.5 seconds
Despite the appearance of imported cars, the brothers X3 and X4 are produced in Brazil. Specifically, the M40i version of the duo has a 3.0 6-cylinder turbo engine with 387 hp and 50.9 kgfm of torque. Not only are they the fastest cars produced in Brazil, they are also the most powerful and among the most expensive.
2. BMW X4 30i M Sport – 6.3 seconds
Lowering the horsepower to 252 hp and 35.7 kgfm of torque available in the 2.0 turbo four-cylinder, the X4 30i M Sport still puts the German brand at the top of the list. It’s 1.8 seconds slower than the summer M40i, but still quick enough to leave the next model on the list 0.7 seconds behind.
3. Audi Q3 and Q3 Sportback – 7 seconds
Assembled at the same Volkswagen T-Cross plant in Paraná, the Audi Q3 and Q3 Sportback siblings use a four-cylinder TFSI turbo engine with 231 hp and 34.7 kgfm of torque. Satisfying performance is aided by quattro all-wheel drive making the Q3 the best luxury SUV available in Brazil today.
4. BMW 320i – 7.1 seconds
The best seller of luxury cars in Brazil, the BMW 3 Series can boast of being the fastest growing in Brazil. It runs from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.1 seconds thanks to a four-cylinder turbo engine with 184 hp and 30.6 kgfm of torque. It’s worth noting that the model was recently modified here and is made in Araquari, SC.
5. Citroën C4 Cactus THP – 7.3 seconds
With zero sporty brags, the Citroën C4 Cactus THP is the fastest overall SUV in Brazil. That’s because Stellantis has a Pulse Abarth with genuine sporting intentions, but which is slower than the Cactus THP. The Frenchman has a 1.6 THP four-cylinder turbo engine with 173 hp and 24.5 kgfm of torque.
6. Fiat Pulse Abarth – 7.6 seconds
The world’s first Abarth SUV, Fiat Pulse gets the 1.3 T270 four-cylinder turbo engine with 185 hp and 27.5 kgfm of torque used by Stellantis SUVs. But the different layout and the extra pepper that Abarth added, changed it. It’s also one of the funniest models in the category.
7. Land Rover Discovery Sport P250 – 7.8 seconds
With 249 hp and 37.2 kgfm of torque produced by the 2.0 turbo four-cylinder engine, the Land Rover Discovery Sport is the fastest 7-seater in Brazil. Including, he is the only car on this list to carry more than five people.
8. Fiat Fastback Limited Edition Powered by Abarth – 8.1 seconds
Despite using the same engine, the Fiat Fastback Limited Edition Powered by Abarth is 0.5 seconds slower than its Pulse Abarth sibling. This is due to the extra weight and modifications made to the 1.3 four-cylinder turbo flex engine with 185 hp and 27.5 kgfm of torque. Could it be that the fastback’s long name also weighed on him in this race?
9. Peugeot 2008 THP – 8.1 seconds
How is it possible that the same model is on the list of the slowest cars in Brazil and also on the fastest? But this is the case of the Peugeot 2008. Thanks to the 1.6 THP engine with 173 hp and 24.5 kgfm of torque, it reduces the time from 0 to 100 km / h from 14 seconds to the expected model to 8.1 seconds.
10. Volkswagen Polo GTS and Volkswagen Virtus Exclusive – 8.5 seconds
Powered by a 1.4 TSI engine with 150 hp and 25.5 kgfm of torque, the Polo GTS and Virtus Exclusive siblings appeal to a different audience. The hatch is sporty in look and nature, while the sedan disguises itself as a sports car because it looks more elegant and without fancy things.
