The independent suspension at the front features a lightweight spring-strut axle with longitudinal and transverse links and cross members that have been refined for stiffness. Each front wheel is precisely located, ensuring excellent directional stability, superior handling and reduced pitching under braking, and the wide track optimises turn-in.
The rear axle is equipped with a motorsport-derived multi-link suspension and chassis subframe. Refined axle kinematics for improved longitudinal damping reduce acceleration squat and increase comfort. Lightweight spring struts further enhance agility.
The high proportion of aluminium used in the construction of the axles reduces the weight of the vehicle and of the unsprung masses, helping to improve fuel economy, comfort and agility.
