Sportivo rear suspension "independant" or "solid",

Recommended Posts

The sportivo website says the corolla has 'semi-independent rear sports suspension'. It looks like a solid axel to me with a panhard rod running throough the centre. Whats so 'independent 'about it?

It is 'semi' independent because there is no axel linking the 2 hubs (as in solid suspension) but there also is no wishbone suspension as seen in fully independent suspension. The torsion beam simply links the 2 suspension mounts to stabalize the rear end. At least that is my understanding...
