Advantages of Horsepower

When shopping for a new car, you may come across the term horsepower, but what is horsepower and how does it relate to cars? Horsepower is simply a unit of measurement that helps car manufacturers differentiate how their cars relate to other models. Here are some points to help you better understand horsepower:

  • Horsepower - Simply put, horsepower is the amount of power produced by an engine. In cars, this would be related to speed. The faster you want your car to go, the more horsepower you need.
  • High Horsepower - If you are looking for a stylish car that accelerates fast, then a high horsepower car is for you. They tend to be expensive and use more fuel due to their capabilities.
  • Low Horsepower - If you are looking for a small or compact car, then you do not need a lot of horsepower. These cars tend to be more affordable and have better fuel efficiency.
