Body Rigidity

Body Rigidity

Body rigidity is one of the keys to the safety, comfort and durability of a car. The less a vehicle "twists" on uneven road surfaces or when cornering at speed, the safer its road characteristics are.

Rigidity varies according to different types of body. Generally, the structure of an open-top car cannot be as rigid as that of a closed body.

The body structure’s static rigidity is both a key technical factor and a relevant part of the subjective feel for safety and ride comfort. Dynamic rigidity is a crucial factor in outstanding dynamics, good vibrational comfort and balanced acoustics.
