How to interpret car specs

If you are unfamiliar with car specs, those tables might not mean much to you. To help you decipher those 2012 Audi S5 car specs, we’ve put together some useful car spec definitions:
  • Base curb weight: This is
    the vehicle’s weight
    with a full tank and standard equipment, excluding any cargo or passengers. 
  • Dimensions: These are measurements of the car’s width, length, height, etc. You can compare these numbers to a car you are familiar with to get an idea of how the car feels to drive.
  • Drivetrain: Drivetrain refers to how the engine powers the wheels. Front-wheel drive is standard in most vehicles, but the S5 comes with all-wheel drive, meaning power is directed to all four wheels rather than just two.
  • Engine displacement
    : This is what is referred to when you see a “3.0-liter engine”. It tells you the total volume of the engine’s cylinders.
  • Ground clearance: The distance between the lowest part of the vehicle and a level surface—useful information for off-road enthusiasts or for getting an idea of how your car will fare against curbs and speed bumps.
  • Horsepower: One horsepower is the amount of power needed to raise 500 pounds by one foot per second. Sound arbitrary? It kind of is. You can just think of this as a measure of your engine’s power output.
  • Torque:
    Torque is its rotational counterpart
    of horsepower. You can think of it as how good your car is at spinning its wheels.
  • Turning diameter: Simply, the minimum diameter circle your vehicle can create if you crank the steering wheel and drive in a full circle.
