Trapezoidal-link Rear Axle

The trapezoidal-link rear axle features a lower trapezium-shaped link, an upper wishbone and a track rod located behind the trapezoidal link. The spring is connected to the trapezoidal link and the damper is coupled to the wheel carrier in a space-saving layout. This design produces excellent driving and handling characteristics with outstanding comfort. The driving stability, especially when cornering, is better than the stability from other constructive solutions although the costs are also higher.
