Torsion Beam Rear Suspension

The torsion beam rear suspension is the most economical layout for non-driven rear axles. Two trailing arms are linked by means of a cross member, which also serves as an anti-roll bar. The advantages of this layout are good directional stability when cornering and a compact design, making for convenient use of space at the rear.
