There was a study done in Portland, Oregon to find the average length of a car. They wanted to see what size parking spaces would be needed to accommodate people.

They measured 390 vehicles (Front bumper of the body to the rear bumper) and found the average length of 13.51706036745407 feet (4.12 meters). This is the average size for midsized sedans/coupes (combustion engines).

A vehicle over 16.40419947506562 (5.0 meters) would be considered a large sized truck or SUV (Usually Commercial sized heavy duty diesels, like the Ford F-350-450).

How many tenths of a second equates to how many car lengths?

That depends on vehicle speed. At 60 mph a vehicle covers 88 feet in one second. It also depends on the length of the car, but assuming the average car is 15 feet in length, it takes less than 2 tenths of a second to travel one "car length" at 60 mph. So in one second, the average car covers almost 6 car lengths! Double the speed - 120 mph - and that same car covers 176 feet in one second; more than half the length of a football field.
