Tenneco Inc. (NYSE:TEN), a global supplier of Ride Performance and Clean Air products and systems is supplying its Multi-Tuned Valve (MTV) suspension technology on the Swift Sport Manufactured in Japan, as well as the Dzire compact-sedan passenger car produced in Maruti Suzuki India Limited. The latest generation Swift, which made its debut in September at IAA 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany, will feature front struts and rear dampers from Tenneco.

Tenneco has worked with Suzuki for over more than a decade, supplying OE front struts and rear shocks dampers for previous generation Swift and Swift Sport models.

“Tenneco’s MTV valve technology has been precision-engineered to offer our customers great flexibility when it comes to tuning vehicle ride characteristics for the best possible balance of performance and comfort,” said Martin Hendricks, executive vice president and president, Tenneco Ride Performance. “Tenneco is excited to continue our long-standing relationship with Suzuki by adding the new Swift to our ever-growing portfolio of OE fitments.”

Tenneco designs and develops a broad range of passive, adaptive and semi-active shock absorbers to meet the needs of OE customers across multiple segments and markets. Offering extensive tuning options, excellent noise reduction and long-lasting durability compared with conventional designs, Tenneco’s MTV valve technology is a leading choice for a wide range of applications. The clamp-disc, full-displacement valve system is engineered to provide precise handling and driving comfort in a variety of driving environments. Tenneco produces the suspension technology for the Dzire at Tenneco’s Bawal plant in India, and at Tenneco’s Gliwice and Hodkovice plants in Europe for the Swift Sport.
