SEAT Glossary

All the details.



The stabiliser consists primarily of a U-shaped bent bar from 10 to 60 millimetres in diameter.

The middle part of the "U" is mounted transversely on the car body and rotatable in rubber bearings and the angled endings are connected to the wheel suspension. Thus, lever forces, which occur on one side, have a balancing effect on the opposite side.

Stabilisers improve directional stability and therefore the driving behaviour of a car. At the same time, they decrease the inclination of the bodywork and they also reduce lateral rolling movements. The improved directional stability makes cornering even safer and more comfortable.
