Multi-Link Rear Suspension

On multi-link rear suspension, three transverse and one longitudinal link per wheel (four-link principle) each absorb different forces. This means that longitudinal and transverse dynamics can be configured precisely and almost independently of each other, achieving maximum directional stability and comfort. Only small modifications need to be made to the structure of the multi-link rear suspension for it to be suitable for use on front-wheel drive models as well as four-wheel drive cars.
