|Honda's Next-Generation Chassis Technology|
| Tokyo, July 2, 1997
Honda has always been committed to the pursuit of ultimate driving pleasure through improved vehicle dynamics. This commitment goes hand in hand with a similarly unwavering stance toward safety. Ultimately, interface between man and machine, or how automobiles can be made to further contribute to our lives is what has been directing these efforts.
We believe that whatever the circumstances or the person driving, vehicle stability is an essential element in the pursuit of both ultimate driving pleasure and safety. Honda has thus focused its efforts on chassis stability, increasing the car's basic ability to accelerate, corner and brake, to further enhance active safety.
As a further step in its development of proprietary high performance front wheel drive chassis technology, Honda is introducing today the following new technologies:
With the incorporation of these new technologies, Honda is setting new standards in chassis performance, with an unprecedented combination of safety and driving pleasure. These technologies will be offered on mass production vehicles, bringing a new spectrum of driving pleasure to a wider range of customers.
