How to interpret car specs

Not sure how to make heads or tails of all these numbers and abbreviations? Hopefully, a few of these brief terminology explanations will help you further understand your 2011 Audi S5.
  • Dimensions: If you’re having trouble visualizing the dimensions of a vehicle, compare the dimensions of a vehicle you know well to get an idea of the difference between it and the 2011 S5.
  • Base curb weight: A fancy name for the
    of a standard base model with no extras and a full tank of gas.
  • Drivetrain: This is the mechanism that spins the wheels, powered by the engine. It’s usually categorized as front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, or four-wheel drive, depending on which wheels are spun by the engine.
  • Engine displacement
    : A fancy name for the size of the engine. It specifically refers to the volume of air/fuel mixture sucked up into the engine’s cylinders during one stroke.
  • Horsepower: It’s kind of an archaic method of measuring the power of an engine, but we still use it! One horsepower is equal to 745.7 watts—enough energy to lift 550 pounds by one foot in one second.
  • Torque: On the other hand, torque measures
    rotational force
    . It’s measured in pound-feet and describes your engine’s ability to rotate your car’s wheels against the opposing force of the driving surface.
  • Ground clearance: Especially important for determining off-road capability, ground clearance is measured as the distance between the lowest part of the car’s chassis and the ground, assuming the ground is level.
  • Turning diameter: The width of the semi-circle formed by the tightest possible turning path.

How to optimize your car insurance coverage

If you’re insuring a 2011 Audi S5, you’ll still be insuring a “luxury vehicle,” and one that doesn’t have the same standard safety features as a newer model would. This could mean that your S5’s insurance policy might be rather expensive. But with the
app, you can always find the best price.
