2017 INFINITI Q60, Under the Hood – Steering & Suspension
Beyond stunning good looks and quality craftsmanship is the driving technology that sets the INFINITI line apart from the crowd. Under the hood of these luxury sports vehicles lies some of the most sophisticated technology and driving dynamics available today. Driving systems found on the new INFINITI Q60 include INFINITI ’s Direct Adaptive Steering (DAS) and Dynamic Digital Suspension (DDS) work in tandem to deliver a smooth ride and responsive handling.
Direct Adaptive Steering
This advanced steering system is now in its second generation. INFINITI introduced DAS technology in 2013, it was the world’s first digital steering system. With further enhancements this new steering technology has been developed to offer exceptional steering feel and feedback for the driver. The intricacies of this steer-by-wire system include an electronic control unit (ECU) that relays steering input from the driver to the wheels instantaneously. It is able to make up to 1,000 steering adjustments per second, without mechanical linkage. With DAS drivers can select a personalized driving mode to customize steering performance.
Dynamic Digital Suspension
Vibrations and bumps are virtually non-existent with INFINITI ’s DDS system. This all-new electronic suspension system monitors the vehicle’s body roll, pitch and bounce rate and reduces or softens unwanted jarring for an ultra smooth ride. Exclusive features of the Dynamic Digital Suspension system found on the INFINITI Q60, include electronically adjustable dampers to regulate control of the damping force for a soft firm ride. New software and hardware including new suspension links and bushings are also in place for enhanced suspension and handling.
