Volkswagen Adopts KYB DCC Pro Shock Absorbers for Various Models

Volkswagen Adopts KYB Shock Absorbers for Various Models

The new models are scheduled to hit the market in the first quarter of 2024.

The Volkswagen Group is utilizing DCC Pro electronically controlled shock absorbers from KYB Corp. to equip new Tiguan, Passat Variant, SKODA Superb and Kodiaq models.

The new models are scheduled to hit the market in the first quarter of 2024.

DCC Pro (Dynamics Chassis Control Pro) systems use double-valve shock absorbers to independently control the extension and compression oscillations caused by the car body and the wheel movements while driving.

These valves react to road conditions and driving situations in a few milliseconds, according to KYB. The ECU activates the respective extension and compression solenoids to adjust independently the internal pressure of the shock absorber to suit road conditions and the driver’s preference (from comfortable to very sporty).

The damping characteristics are automatically adjusted in a continuous way, which, in conjunction with the full independence between extension and compression movements, “brings the vehicle comfort and control to the highest level.”

“This provides safe, dynamic maneuverability and an unprecedented ‘flying-carpet’ ride experience,” KYB adds.

KYB and the VW Group have been working together for several years. Since collaborating on the Audi RS suspension, KYB and Volkswagen have cooperated extensively for the VW brand.

“KYB will continue growing in advanced technologies that provide high added value to our customers in these challenging times for the automotive sector,” the company said in a news release.
