The venerable Nissan Skyline is celebrating a 63-year history, with its tradition of innovative technologies continuing in the 2020 Skyline 400R, which is now available in Japan with Intelligent Dynamic Suspension (IDS) featuring DRiV Continuously Variable Semi-Active (CVSAe) suspension technology. The CVSAe system automatically senses road and driving conditions and independently adjusts the four electronically controlled shock absorbers in real time for comfort, handling and driving enjoyment.
THIS VIDEO demonstrates how the CVSAe system works.
“Since its introduction in 1957, the iconic Skyline has helped set the standard for driving enjoyment. We are pleased to help continue this impressive tradition with Monroe Intelligent Suspension technology in Japan,” said Brad Norton, executive vice president and president of ride performance at DRiV. “Our CVSAe solution is a popular, proven solution that enables consumers to customise their ride experience based on driving situation and personal preference.”
DRiV is part of the Monroe Intelligent Suspension portfolio, which includes selective suspension solutions (Dual Mode) and semi-active solutions with external valve (CVSAe), and two independent valves (CVSA2). The portfolio also includes Kinetic for pitch and roll control.
