KW automotive, the suspension manufacturer, is one of the leading manufacturers with a huge portfolio of coilover suspension kits for Compact and Mid-size cars with permanent all-wheel-drive. Now KW has developed a coilover suspension kit, that is separately adjustable in compression and rebound forces for the latest Mercedes-AMG A35 4MATIC (W177).
A KW Variant 3 equipped Mercedes-AMG A35 4MATIC gets the benefit of improved driving dynamics and a sporty stance. The approved level of lowering is 5 – 30 millimeters at the front axle and 10 – 30 millimeters on the rear axle. Driven on long distances the A35 is still sporty-comfortable.
With the coilover suspension kit, the Mercedes turns precisely, and the drivers get direct feedback of the car through the well-balanced suspension setup in every driving situation. Even at the limits of driving physics, the A35 AMG has enough safety buffer. Together with the short wheelbase, the Mercedes-AMG A35 4MATIC transforms with the KW Variant 3 coilover suspension kit to an astounding hot hatchback who cuts through every corner.
The purpose of compression stage damping in a car suspension supports the body structure and regulates the spring and the damper itself. Depending on the dialed setup you have the ability to influence the body roll and handling via the adjusted compression stage level.
With twelve clicks the adjustment can be dialed in the low-speed range of the compression damping speed and independently with 16 clicks in low-speed range of rebound damping (piston rod velocity); the high-speed compression stage valves are already preconfigured and can’t be dialed further by the driver. Especially the high-speed compression forces influence the ride comfort.
If driven on wavy tarmac on poorly maintained roads the KW Variant 3 coilover suspension dampening these impacts fast and precise.
If this so-called high vertical wheel acceleration happens, the pre-configured high-speed compression stage valves will open totally, and the wheel can immerse by driving over cross joints or corrugations. Through our damper technology you still have a harmonic dampening and ride sporty.
We further improve the dampening at the AMG A35 with the use of progressive suspension springs. Everyone who decides on a KW coilover suspension kit always gets a vehicle-specific development we validated in countless real-life tests and at our 7-post-rig.
Separate from the adjustment of the compression forces the KW Variant 3 is also adjustable in the low-speed range of the rebound damping forces. The adjustment is always direct at the piston rod with 16 clicks. If the rebound valves are opened, the ride comfort increases; if they are closed, the handling becomes more direct.
Similar to the compression valves, the rebound valving is also built with low- and high-speed valves. Only at high traction stage forces, the damper fluid flows through the high-speed main valve.
In addition to the gain in driving dynamics and sporty ride comfort, the KW coilover suspension kit convinces with their years of high-quality workmanship.
