With the Civic becoming a unified global model I think the question of suspension is a relevant one.

The Euro Civic uses a twist beam (torsion depnding on your 'terminology') rear setup (because its based on the FIT platform)

The NA Civic uses a multilink setup

Now considering that the Civic and Accord are slated to share a platform, the multi link seems like the most likely simply in the name of comfort...Thoughts or concrete info??

ford is still classleader here

there's room for improvement here with the 10th gen

I am expecting the multi link system from the North American Civic. It just seems that since they are turning it into a global model it would be better to go with the better system and upgrade Europe, rather than the opposite.

Agreed as the multilink is also easier to offer AWD with the eventual update to the ILX...
