All vehicles, sedan and hatchback models utilize an independent MacPherson strut arrangement for each rear wheel. Each suspension unit consists of a combined coil spring/shock absorber strut, a lower control arm and a radius rod.
Station wagon models use a more conventional leaf spring rear suspension with a solid rear axle. The springs are three-leaf, semi-elliptic types located longitudinally with a pair of telescopic shock absorbers to control rebound. The solid axle and leaf springs allow for a greater load carrying capacity for the wagon over the sedan.
