However - the key critical elements which aids in ride quality are:
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.
You must have heard of terms -
as stated by Owners, Car Reviewers. For Layman and easy understanding - By calling a Suspension - Soft or Stiff means height adjustment of Coil Springs which impact overall ride and handling on City and Highway Conditions.
The compression rate of springs by which it will go up and down define ride quality. Here are details :-

Been the Suspension is stiff the overall weight dynamics are better balanced out and cornering ability of the car is also better controlled. Enthusiast Cars, SUV Cars generally get Stiff Suspension for better high speed and Cornering Dynamics

This, even for Cars with Soft Suspension to maintain equilibrium - 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.
