Family Feud: BMW 428i Takes On 430i xDrive From Rolling Start

Since most of the drag races we’re used to seeing involve either hot hatchbacks, supercars and even hypercars, this BMW 4-Series “challenge” feels pretty fresh.

Not only are both of these models regular, day-to-day cars, but it’s also interesting to see which four-cylinder turbocharged BMW power unit comes out on top.

We had to dive into the video’s comments section in order to figure out which car is which, and apparently, the camera car is said to be the 430i xDrive, while the gray Cabriolet model is the 428i.

Without saying which one won, we will acknowledge that as a slight underdog, the 428i performed better than expected, although not in a surprising fashion. We tested the 428i Cabrio back in 2015 and found that its 245 PS, 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) turbocharged four-pot was punchy.

Back then, we sampled the xDrive version, which could hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.5 seconds. Going with a rear-wheel drive model such as this one will shave 0.1 seconds off that time.
