Less Torque Steer Effect

The increasing power output of front wheel drive vehicles means that the so-called 'torque steer effect' is becoming increasingly obvious to the driver. Although sophisticated suspension concepts that can reduce the negative effects exist, they introduce additional links or control arms and are usually not considered in the B and C-class vehicle segment, as they are expensive and require significant body modifications. The front suspension concept called 'Revo Knuckle' reduces steering disturbances and can be implemented in a common body platform with a McPherson-type suspension.
