How to interpret car specs

If you’re not really sure what you’re looking at when you’re reading a car specs sheets, you’re not alone! Here are some brief explanations for some of the more common and confusing pieces of car specification jargon, so you can really understand all there is to understand about your 2021 Audi S5.
  • Base curb weight: Refers to the weight of the standard base model with no extras and a full tank of gasoline.
  • Dimensions: Dimensions can be hard to visualize—especially when things are measured in units like cubic inches. Comparing the dimensions to a vehicle you’re familiar with is a good way to get an idea of just how spacious that car is.
  • Drivetrain: Refers to the mechanism by which the wheels are spun. This will either be described as front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, or or four-wheel drive, depending on which wheels are receiving power from the engine and when.
  • Engine displacement
    : This is how we distinguish between engines of different sizes. It refers to the amount of volume of air and fuel that is taken up into the cylinders of the engine during a single stroke of the engine.
  • Ground clearance: Important for off-roaders, this is the distance between the lowest part of the car’s body and level ground.
  • Horsepower: This is how we measure the raw power output of an engine. One horsepower is equal to 745.7 watts of power, which is enough energy to lift 550 pounds by 1 foot in 1 second.
  • Torque: While horsepower is a measurement of raw power output, torque measures rotational force. In other words, torque describe your engine’s ability to rotate your car’s wheels against the force of a driving surface.
  • Turning diameter: If you have to do a full 180-degree U-turn, your car’s turning diameter is the diameter of the semi-circle formed by your smallest possible turning path.
