Ride

Ride - like handling, ride is typically a subjective notion of the car's level of comfort (handling generally refers to the car's dynamic cornering ability).

Manufacturers must strike a balance between ride and handling, bump absorption and stability.

An ultra-soft ride can aggravate body movement during directional changes (bodyroll) and reduce steering response.
