In this research, the handling behavior of an intermediate class passenger car has been optimized by altering its front suspension parameters. For this purpose, a validated virtual model of the car, constructed by Adams/Car software, has been used. The utilized objective function is a combination of eight criteria indicating handling characteristics of the car. To reduce the amount of optimization parameters, a sensitivity analysis has been done by implementing the Design of Experiments method capabilities. Optimization has been done using the Response Surface Method. The obtained optimization results show a considerable improvement in the system response.
