Development of the New Civic Suspension

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.13 No.1

Summary

New front and rear suspensions have been developed for the new Civic to achieve a highly efficient package layout and good vehicle dynamic performance. The reduced front overhang of 60mm, collision safety target and linear front suspension toe curve are achieved by adopting a strut suspension with a steering gearbox that is mounted 250mm higher than the usual strut suspension. The increased rear luggage room width of 142mm and linear rear suspension toe curve are achieved by adopting an in-wheel double wishbone suspension with a lowered rear damper position. By having these suspension characteristics, the new Civic has enhanced handling and riding comfort performance over the previous Civic.
