WATCH: Monster SUV drag race - Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 vs Porsche Macan Performance Package

Let's settle this one on the drag strip...which mid-sized SUV is fastest between the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 and the Porsche Macan Performance Package?

The AMG uses a 4.0-litre turbocharged V8  capable of 375kW/700Nm. Its 0-100km/h sprint is a claimed 3.8 seconds.
