Amplitude Reactive Dampers

What’s the Benefit?

Owners benefit from dampers that are secure and tight feeling in corners, yet smooth and supple when cruising, for greater ride comfort.

The Feature:

The HR-V uses extremely sophisticated dampers that are often only found on luxury vehicles.

  • These dampers have a second piston valve, enabling them to provide the right damping force for the driving condition.
  • For example, road bumps will trigger lower damping forces, for a more compliant ride quality, while tight cornering will produce higher damping forces for sportier turning with less body roll.
