    • ‘The front springs have been stiffened by 10 per cent, the diameter of the front anti-roll bar has been increased, the front subframe strengthened considerably, and the damper settings have been altered to suit.’
    • ‘These include new damper control settings, revised front suspension spring rates, and front and rear anti-roll bar rates.’
    • ‘The suspension is independent strut/coil springs in front, and a torsion beam in back with an anti-roll bar at each end.’

    • ‘All use the same anti-roll bar and spring rates.’
    • ‘Indeed, active anti-roll bars have been outlawed.’
    • ‘This real-time damping ability alters the relationship between ride and handling by allowing the use of softer springs and smaller anti-roll bars without adversely affecting body motion and wheel control.’
