Question type: General

How does Honda multi-link rear suspension compare to Chevrolet Cruze rear suspension?

7 Answers

Haven't seen to many Chevy Cruze's on the roads...seems like to early to draw conclusions, in theory if a car has the right stuff (twin a-frame wish-bone rear suspension) will behave itself, in traffic, on the track...in an accident- will have to wait a couple of years 'till it pans out.

There is no comparision. The Honda multi link would perform better than a torsion beam rear axle. I found this - "According to GM, the Cruze's body structure is 65 percent high-strength steel. MacPherson struts are utilized in the front suspension with a solid torsion beam axle for the rear, avoiding the cost and complexity needed for a modern multi-link independent rear suspension used by some more expensive rivals."

Why can't US automakers be more competitive? Techincal details should outweigh marketing...but people go through life with blinders on believing just what they're gonna believe, and only takes a LOUD nay-sayer to shut down what was a terrific idea...

Since the Cruse is a product developed by Germany's Opel and Korean Daewoo, not all the blame falls on General Motors. Chevy does dictate the price range and maintenance procedures so it does have a dog in the fight. Honda car owners expect better handling and are willing to pay for it. Chevy car owners want a low cost device to get them to grandma's house. They will balk at the cost of replacing all those bushings at the ends of those multi-link suspension arms.

ahhh, low-tech.

Great Britain's experience with motor cars very much parallels our own. Got your high-end hand made buggies, and the stamp -em out and call it skippy people movers. That three wheel devil with the lone wheel in front never would have gotten off the drawing board in my Engineering department---"the swallow" I think it was called- darn. it they'd just put the lone wheel in the back-

created because taxation on three wheel cycles is not as aggressive as four wheel. Good example of how governmental policy takes a hand in what we are driving!
