What’s the Benefit?This design enhances steering geometry for high-performance driving while simultaneously minimizing torque steer, for more direct and enjoyable cornering and acceleration.
Compared to the design for other Civic models, this suspension uses additional, highly rigid components to separate the steering axis from the damper axis.
This helps insulate the steering system from the effects of delivering 306 peak horsepower through the front wheels, known as torque steer.
