A car’s engine size, also known as the engine capacity or simply CC, is the size of the volume swept by each of the cylinders, which inside combine and burn air and fuel to generate energy. The larger the engine size, the more fuel your vehicle consumes, the more power it produces, and the more your car accelerates.
Engine capacity is also measured in litres—at times you may see such things as 2.0i or 3.0D written on the outside of a vehicle, and these simply stand for 2-litre petrol engine or 3-litre diesel engine, respectively. The size of the engine ultimately decides the power and bottom-line price you will pay, so it is an important factor to consider.
