If you’re looking for the most comfortable ride quality in your SUV, consider investing in the right car suspension. There are many different types of car suspensions available on the market, such as magnetic and air suspensions.

Choosing the best one for you will depend on your needs and budget. Let’s explore the differences between these two car suspensions and how they can help improve your daily driving experience.

Magnetic Suspensions

The first type of suspension we’ll discuss is magnetic, which is a relatively new technology that utilizes magnets to offer improved ride quality.

How Magnetic suspensions works

Engineering explained: On magnetic suspensions

Magnetic suspensions work by creating a cushioning effect when driving over rough terrain or bumpy roads. This cushioning effect helps reduce vibrations, allowing drivers to enjoy a smoother and more comfortable ride.

How’s handling with Magnetic suspensions?

Magnetic suspension systems also provide better handling than traditional suspension systems due to their ability to adjust automatically to changing road conditions. These suspensions are lightweight and require little maintenance compared to other types of car suspensions.

Most Magnetic suspensions are expensive and may not be suitable for all vehicles. Drive a car with this suspension and the next kind (Air suspension), for a true apples to apples comparison.

Air Suspensions

The second type of suspension we’ll examine is air suspension – usually the more offerdable of the two car support system. It is also the most tried and true of these two suspension systems.

How does Air Suspensions work?

These suspensions uses air pressure to create an adjustable ride height for increased comfort and stability when driving over uneven surfaces or rough terrains. Air suspensions offer superior levels of a comfort compared to other types of suspension. This is due to their ability to absorb shock from bumps or potholes without causing uncomfortable vibrations or jolts in the cabin area.

These types of car suspensions are adjustable so you can customize your ride height based on your preferences or needs at any given time. On the downside, air suspensions tend to cost more than traditional suspension systems and require regular maintenance for them to function properly.


When it comes down to choosing between magnetic and air suspension systems for your SUV – it ultimately depends on what you need out of your vehicle as well as what you’re willing to spend on it.

Both types offer superior levels of comfort when compared with traditional suspension systems but come with different pros and cons depending on factors like budget, maintenance requirements, installation costs, expected performance levels etc.

Ultimately though, both options can help you get a comfortable ride quality for your daily driving commute so no matter which one you choose – you won’t be disappointed. With this guide in mind though – hopefully now you know enough about each option so that you can make an informed decision that’s right for you!
