Cars with Best Suspension in 2019

Suspension is build up of several components like - Link Rods, Lower Arm, Bushes, Springs, Shockers (aka as Dampers) etc which aids in Ride and Handling Character of Vehicle.

However - the key critical elements which aids in ride quality and Springs and Shockers. You must have heard of terms - Soft Suspension and Hard Suspension. 

For Layman and easy understanding - By calling a Suspension - Soft or Stiff means height adjustment of Coil Springs for overall ride and handling. The compression rate of springs by which it will go up and down define ride quality. Taller Springs are generally referred as key to Soft Suspension, while shorter Springs are key to Stiff suspension

» Soft Suspension - Calling Suspension to be Soft Suspension means that the car is tuned for better ride on slow speed, In City drive,. You drive well on City Roads, even Marginal bad roads on slow speed and overall ride turns to be soft. 

Although Smaller Bumps are absorbed easily on slow speed, but sharp bumps or bad roads can be felt in cabin in case of soft Suspension.

Some downside of Soft Suspension is this will cause relative higher body roll making car higher speed dynamics and compromise on cornering ability on speed. Also if the Car is Fully Loaded - despite higher ground clearance - this will come down and may find under-body scraping on bad roads, speed breaker 

» Stiff Suspension - Calling Suspension to be Stiff means that the Car Performs better in over all ride and handling on high speed with better grip and handling on highway. Been the Suspension is stiff the overall weight dynamics are better balanced out and cornering ability of the car is also better controlled.

Downside is Car with Stiff Suspension will let Bad roads, Potholes percolate in Cabin on slow Speed. If Suspension is on Stiff Side, you may find low Speed Ride and Handling not as plush as Cars with Soft Suspension.

If you are in looking for off road, faster performance car, relative better cornering abilities – you may admire on Stiff Suspension

While Springs supports the weight of the car and force require to compress, Shocker (aka as Dampers) help prevent the car from bouncing up and down so as to remain in contact with the road surface.

In case of Softer Springs, Dampers - Inertia movement let the tyres to loose contact with road surface in case of road bumps or tend to have higher body roll on taking steep turns and thus causing the vehicle to understeer. Its best for OEM to give suspension a fair amount of rigidness yet keeping them soft enough as combination to give best in ride quality and handling characterstic to the car.

So - Car Manufacturers uses Best R&D to determine an equilibrium in play to give fair amount of Rigidness for High Speed Drive yet keeping Suspension Soft enough to have good drive on City roads.

No Fords? Aspire and Ecosport are arguably the best in their segments, the Sports version of both cars are clearly the best, both in ride quality and handling
