Renault Megane RS tries to outrun a Mercedes-Benz GLA45 and fails

TL;DR – A Megane RS shows us how its 6-speed manual transmission can't outshift the GLA45s' 7-speed DCT transmission

 

A user-uploaded video on Complaint Singapore features a Megane RS and a GLA45s drag racing from one traffic light to the next.

Here's the video for reference:

 
 
Where?

The 22-second video takes place in the CBD area of Singapore, along Central Blvd.

It's not a Hyundai

The caption of the video states that the car racing the Mercedes is a Hyundai, but it's not. It's a Renault Megane RS

Manual vs DCT

Towards the end of the video, you'll notice that the GLA overtakes the Megane RS before the video cuts off.

So, does that mean that a dual-clutch transmission is better than a manual one?

Let's see how Google answered this question.

Quote

DCTs can be as efficient as manual transmissions, and it shifts faster than any human can. This is why the application of DCTs in performance cars makes perfect sense. However, in everyday driving, DCTs will struggle to creep in traffic and on hills. It's an inherent characteristic of DCTs to judder at low speeds.

    We (try to) identify all 14 vehicles involved in the massive chain collision on the PIE

    Personally, I strictly employ the 2-second rule, especially during heavy (heavier) traffic and wet weather.  The extra distance and time provided by the 2-second rule will be crucial for you to react accordingly when the car in front of you performs an abrupt brake. Watch what happens when one doesn't leave a safe distance from the car ahead: What Happened? A total of 14 vehicles were involved in 3 clusters of accidents along lane 1 of the PIE, with two clusters bei
