SUSPENSION FEATURES
Improved rigidity and handling stability: E-type multi-link rear suspension adopted
Improved handling and riding comfort

  1. Four-point rubber mount system front crossmember adopted
  2. Oil-filled bushing for front lower arm
  3. Front shock absorber with large bore piston adopted
  4. Front spring layout optimized
  5. Separated input type front shock absorber mount adopted

Enlarged trunk compartment: Separated positioning of rear shock absorber and coil spring adopted
Improved marketability: Adhesive-type balance weights adopted (aluminum alloy wheels)
Environmental consideration: Steel balance weights adopted to reduce the use of lead

WHEELS AND TIRES OUTLINE

  1. An adhesive-type balance weights has been adopted to the outer side of the aluminum alloy wheels. Due to this, a stylish wheel design is realized.
  2. In consideration of the environment, steel balance weights have been adopted to reduce the use of lead in the vehicle.

FRONT SUSPENSION OUTLINE

  1. A strut-type front suspension has been adopted.
  2. Due to the tight connection of the four-point rubber mounts to the body, high handling stability and improved riding comfort is provided together with low NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) with no loss of mount rigidity.

FRONT SHOCK ABSORBER CONSTRUCTION

  1. Excellent response shock absorbers with large-diameter pistons and built-in rebound springs which suppress inner wheel lifting during cornering have been adopted for improved riding comfort and handling stability.
  2. Separated input type front shock absorber mounts have been adopted. Due to this, the shock absorbers function efficiently, improving steering stability and riding comfort.
  3. In addition, to reduce shock absorber inner friction that occurs when lateral force acts on the shock absorbers, the coil springs have been optimally positioned.

FRONT LOWER ARM CONSTRUCTION
An oil-filled bushing has been adopted for the backside of the front lower arm. Due to this, superior handling stability and riding comfort, and low NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) have been achieved.
FRONT CROSSMEMBER CONSTRUCTION
A four-point rubber mount system has been adopted for the front crossmember. Due to this, the application of preload in the vertical direction has improved rigidity providing enhanced handling stability, and the utilization of horizontal flexibility has improved riding comfort.

REAR SUSPENSION OUTLINE

  1. An E-type multi-link rear suspension has been adopted.
  2. A wider luggage compartment is ensured due to the separated positioning of the shock absorber and coil spring.
  3. Also due to the separated positioning of the shock absorber and coil spring, side force on the shock absorber is reduced so that the suspension system operates smoothly and riding comfort is improved.

REAR SHOCK ABSORBER CONSTRUCTION

  1. Monotube shock absorbers with superior damping characteristics such as response have been adopted, improving handling stability and riding comfort.
  2. Chambers that are gas-pressurized via a free piston have been equipped to provide excellent oil cooling capability and minimized cavitation. Due to this, stable damping force is provided.

REAR CROSSMEMBER CONSTRUCTION

  1. Due to the use of a hollow-steel construction rear crossmember, weight reduction is achieved while rigidity is improved.
  2. The rear crossmember is tightly connected to the vehicle body in six points, ensuring high rigidity.
