Benefits of DCC Pro controlled shock absorbers

Electronically controlled shock absorbers from KYB have been adopted by Volkswagen Group to equip new Tiguan, Passat Variant, Škoda Superb and Kodiaq models with the new Dynamics Chassis Control Pro (DCC Pro).

DCC Pro systems use double valve shock absorbers to independently control the extension and compression oscillations caused by the car body and the wheel movements while driving.

These valves react to road conditions and driving situations in a few milliseconds. The ECU activates the respective extension and compression solenoids to independently adjust the internal pressure of the shock absorber to suit road conditions and the driver’s preference – from comfortable to sporty!

The damping characteristics are automatically adjusted in a continuous way, which in conjunction with the full independence between extension and compression movements, brings the vehicle comfort and control to the highest level, according to KYB, which it reported provides safe, dynamic manoeuvrability and a ‘flying carpet’ ride experience.

Long-term partnership

KYB and the VW Group have been collaborating for several years, including the sporty Audi RS suspension, and since then have cooperated extensively for the VW brand. This new development is part of KYB’s policy to further strengthen its partnership with the German car manufacturer. The “hard development and validation process” engineered between KYB and Volkswagen teams has made it possible to offer this technology.


KYB stated it will continue to grow in advanced technologies, aiming to provide high added value to its customers in these “challenging times” for the sector.

KYB produces electronically controlled shock absorbers in both Asia and Europe, in its manufacturing facilities specifically built to be at the forefront of high technology shock absorber manufacturing.
