Ground Clearance indicates the distance between the lowest point under the car and the ground. It is also termed as ride height;

  • It is the amount of space in between the base of a vehicle's tires; the shortest distance between a flat level surface and the lowest part of a vehicle other than those parts designed to contact the ground. It is a critical factor in several important characteristics of a vehicle. For all the vehicles, especially cars, variation in clearance represent a trade-off between handling and practicality. A higher ride height and ground clearance mean the wheels have more vertical room for travel and also to absorb shocks.
