Theres no such thing as an ideal suspension. Every owner has his own choice of setup.
If you dont like the way your car has been setup by the manufacturer, you can always get it altered. I got it done on my OHC and am very happy with it.

The scope of dicussion is very wide here. You have broadly 4 types of suspension systems-
3. Semi Active
Passive is what you have in most of the cars. All mcpherson structs, double wish bone, multi link etc come uner this category. The rest three are limited to luxury cars. S class, BMW 7 series have active suspension. Semi active and adaptive is available on vehicles like Toyota Landcruiser 100, etc
Among passive suspension, the cars which most of us use, it all depends upon proper optimisation of suspension. PSA peugeot is know for its ability to provide best optimised passive suspension.
p.s- If the aim of the discussion is to find out best handling or ride comfort car, then the only way is to drive it and feel it or ask your best friend:-)

For most of the cars we drive, a soft suspension means more comfort over potholes. But that also means handling suffers. If you take a corner at speed you would feel the car roll.
