How to interpret car specs

A quick skim through the specs is no good if you have no idea what any of it means. That’s why we’ve put together a mini glossary of all the important car spec definitions to know down below. 
  • Gross vehicle weight
    : Add up the total weight of your vehicle with standard equipment and a full tank of gas.
  • Dimensions: Measurements of both a vehicle’s exterior and interior components. Take note of a previous car you’ve ridden in and compare it to the S5 for an accurate comparison.
  • Drivetrain: A fancy word that refers to how power is transferred to a car’s wheels. Front-wheel drive is the standard.
    Rear-wheel drive
    is common in sports cars for increased handling, while all-wheel drive is perfect for rough off-roading.
  • Engine displacement
    : The total volume of an engine’s cylinders measured in liters. Stronger engines tend to have higher volumes.
  • Ground clearance: The distance between your car’s undercarriage and the ground, measured in inches. Off-roading is better done with vehicles that have higher clearance.
  • Horsepower: Relates to how powerful an engine is. It takes one horsepower to raise 500 pounds one foot in a second. 
  • Torque
    : If horsepower is pure power, torque is the rotating power of an engine that dictates how quickly a car can accelerate from zero miles per hour. 
  • Turning diameter: The minimum diameter a car’s outer wheels take to complete a U-turn.
