OVERVIEW

The front suspension features long travel McPherson struts to optimize on and off road performance.

The suspension components are mounted on a subframe. The subframe is mounted on four bushes which have differing compression rates to absorb lateral and longitudinal loading. This provides a rigid platform for front suspension cornering loads, frontal impact absorption and also provides a towing point for off-road recovery.
