Boss suspension. Please do tell me about the cars which comes fitted with such suspension.

About the video. Yes it funny, I thought it was just a joke. But then I gottu know that this video explains the cars ability to nullify the Roll factor of the car. Irrespective of any road undulations, you will always enjoy a stable ride

It's actually the "Bose Suspension" better known as Linear electro suspension. It's a technology being developed by Bose and still at prototyping stage, as far as I know, there are no production cars available with this technology. Here's the link to the official Bose site that explains this technology-
Bose Learning Center - Bose Suspension System

I would love that almost 0 Roll ride. i.e We will only feel the vertical disturbances, all horizontal shaking and disturbances are neutralized.
There are several reasons why HN suspension is not implemented in low end cars-
1. It is expensive to manufacture
2. It is expensive to maintain and repair
3. You need specialist garages with engineers who have been specially trained for this to repair these suspensions

This is the reasons why HN suspension is only available on premium citroens (like the C5 that starts from 16,000 pounds) and not on their base models.

Considering this, Captiva should offer the best comfort in riding. i.e the flying carpet feel.
A captiva comes with a multi-link suspension and not w HN suspension. And no it does not have a magic carpet ride, test drive a camry or teana and you'll see that their ride is a lot more plush than a captiva.
