We've re-looked at every component to create a vehicle with an unrivalled sense of 'oneness' between car and driver. The underbody employs straight-frame construction throughout the framework to boost stiffness and save weight. Greatly increased use of high and ultra-high tensile steel throughout cuts weight, yet bolsters rigidity. Despite being light, the chassis disperses crash energy in multiple directions to achieve performance among the world's best. To achieve nimble handling with great ride comfort, the chassis uses firmer bushings and completely revised geometry for better bump absorption. A highly rigid front suspension cross member combines with higher-ratio electric power assist steering to quicken handling response.
