How to interpret car specs

If scrolling through the above tables made your head spin, don’t worry—you’re not alone. All of the technical jargon can be hard to interpret. Here are a few tips for better understanding your Audi S3 specs: 
  • Base curb weight: This refers to
    the vehicle’s weight
    when it has a full tank and is equipped with only standard equipment. 
  • Dimensions: Manufacturers will measure the interior and exterior dimensions of the vehicle to give you an idea of just how big it is. Our suggestion is to compare the provided dimensions with those of a vehicle you’re familiar with. 
  • Drivetrain: Cars can be front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, or four-wheel drive—this simply refers to exactly which wheels are exerting power.
  • Engine displacement
    : This measurement gives you the exact volume taken up by your engine’s cylinders—in other words, it tells you how big your car’s engine is.
  • Ground clearance: This number expresses the space between the lowest part of your vehicle’s chassis and the ground. It’s an incredibly important number to note if you ever plan to take your vehicle off-road. 
  • Horsepower: Horsepower is the unit of measurement used to describe your engine’s power, but it actually has nothing to do with horses. One unit of horsepower is how much power is needed to raise 500 pounds by one foot per single second.
  • Torque: When you’re looking at engine power, torque has to do with how much the motor can spin the wheels. 
  • Turning diameter: How small of a semicircle can a vehicle make while performing a U-turn? That’s the turning diameter. 

How to optimize your car insurance coverage

The specs don’t quite express just how fun and luxurious the Audi S3 is—which, unfortunately, means it can be pretty expensive to insure.
