How to use the car specs data

To select the model you want for a car specs check, use the drop-down menus above, choose from make, model and year – and then decide exactly which model you want when on page. This information will help you if you need basic vehicle info, or you want to know what is your car. It also helps when working out how far your car will go on a tank of fuel, or whether it will fit in your garage. For those who like to know how fast it is, the 0-60mph acceleration figures, how much bhp a car has, and maximum speed data will tell you all you need to know as will its maximum power and torque.

Finally, we also publish that all-important fuel consumption data, which is directly responsible for what any car is going to cost you to run on a daily basis

Car Specs FAQs

What spec is my car?

When buying a car, it is important to know what the exact spec of the car is, so you can work out if it is the right car for you. You can check car details here to get the correct vehicle info and using that information, work out if it is what you need – fuel consumption data helps you plan your running costs, and bhp, engine size and performance figures can tell if the car is suitable for motorway driving, and whether it’s exciting enough for you. Dimensions are also important – is it big enough inside, and does it fit in your garage or parking space?

Can I find my car spec from its number plate?

Yes! You can enter your reg number above and your exact spec details will be shown, as long as the registration is a valid, UK-issued number, post-2001.

How do I check my car dimensions?

The Parkers car specs pages are packed with data that covers everything you need to know about the dimensions of your car. You can check how long it is, to see if it fits in your garage, and how wide it is to get an idea of how manageable it is in town. A very useful dimension is luggage space, which is measured in litres. That might not seem logical – but the good news is that all cars’ boots are measured in litres and it means you can compare models in a consistent manner.

How much horsepower does my car have?

The Parkers spec pages allow you to see how much brake horsepower (bhp) your car has car to know exactly how powerful it is. It’s also useful for comparing similar cars. Checking your power – especially before you buy – is important because it gives you a good idea of how easily your car copes with motorway driving – the more bhp it has the more easily it will cope with long-distance driving, as it will be less stressed at the legal limit. More maximum power also makes driving up steep hills easier, and means the car isn’t as badly affected when it’s loaded with passenger or luggage. 

How to check my car performance

Not everyone has access to a test track, so being able to know how fast it is usually comes down to visiting sites, such as this one, to find out. There are some important benchmark figures that can tell you what your car’s performance is like – its 0-62mph time tells you how fast it is off the mark, while its maximum speed gives you a good indication of how easily it cruises on the motorway at the legal limit. 

What about a vehicle weight checker?

Knowing how heavy your car is might not seem like the most important factor in car ownership, but there are times when knowing its kerbweight (in kg or lb) is essential. Consider if you find yourself towing, knowing your car’s weight and alongside its towing capacity will give you a good idea about how it’ll be when pulling a caravan or trailer. Increasingly, towns and cities are imposing weight limits, too, as well finding them on small bridges – and if you drive a large SUV, it can be quite easy to inadvertently find yourself over any strict limit. Using the Parkers specs pages to check your car details is a very good way of avoiding potential issues.
