Lotus to help Kia improve ride and handling

Kia will be working with chassis expert Lotus on all future models to improve their ride and handling – well at least for Kia’s that will be sold in the UK. A spokesman for Kia said that the new strategy will provide an upgraded suspension that is tuned specifically for UK Roads.

The first car to receive the treatment will be the new Soul. It will get higher compression and rebound rates plus adapted bump tops to help the car from bottoming out on large potholes.

The spokesman said that the changes will help stop the harshness of the road getting into the cabin while improving steering feel.
