    Default Civic X Turbo

    Bought civic X few days ago , as I was driving it out of my car porch i noticed one of its wheel just moved up.
    This was shocking for me.
    I then parked my other cars at the same place with the same angle , but all of them kept their base .

    I am not saying it's a flaw, or anything . But I would like to know why there is no stretch in rear suspension?
    Why is it like this?
    Any specific advantages of this ?

    But one this is sure , this car is not for bumpy off roading .

    Totally normal. My friend has a similar ramp and my car and his cars do the same thing when getting up or down, the rear wheel cocks up. It's all to do with angle of incline.

    it is totally normal given the angle of your ramp, our corollas (and 8th, 9th gen civics in past) do it all the time on the ramp of my home, even small hatches like cultus, khyber do it if I reverse em out with full steering lock. and when moved in hurry, corolla 2005's tyre goes as high as more than half foot.

    I don't know man. The incline doesn't look too steep. I think it's the design of this civic. Suspension travel has been kept minimal and the rear stabilizer bar is stiffer. Might not be too comfortable on Pakistani roads.

    They've stiffen the suspension and reduced wheel articulation (less suspension travel).

    There are two things. One, the chassis is stiff which means that it doesn't twist. This is a good thing.
    Second, if this car has a rear stabilizer bar, that too is very very stiff. For sporty driving it's good but it compromises comfort on bumpy roads.
    However if there is no rear stabilizer bar then the suspension travel is limited by the manufacturer which again is not too helpful on our roads.
