Turbocharged engines work by forcing more air into the intake compared to an engine of the same size. Generally, turbocharged engines are smaller than conventional engines. This is beneficial for a couple reasons. First, smaller engines are more efficient. They weigh less and also produce less emissions. Power and performance are increased because every stroke of the piston generates more power than a conventional engine. Turbochargers also produce more torque, which helps drivers accelerate quicker and more efficiently. The sportier drive is preferred by many sports car enthusiasts.

How fast do new vehicles depreciate?

One additional point that is often neglected when talking about turbocharged engines is that they are quieter than conventional engines. The air that enters the engine is more filtered, resulting in a refined exhaust noise. While loud engines may seem cool, it can get annoying when you’re spending hours on the road at a time.
