Furthermore, McPherson strut and coil spring front suspension with 3-link rigid axle with coil springs rear suspension supports the braking system in keeping the vehicle stable. Under TECT (Total Effective Control Technology), collision impact gets reduced due to the absorption of impact energy. This happens because basic structure of the car is made in solid, lightweight material integrated with ladder frame body monocoque.

Suzuki APV arena is an entry level MPV that does what it is intended to do. However, being a budget car, do not expect much luxury or drive quality from it.
