The evaluations of ride comfort, handling, and steering feeling have been known as one of the dominant factors for vehicle performance assessment. However, those factors have not been analyzed in-depth in conjunction with general ride and handling design parameters. Thus, we have surveyed some previous studies dealing with subjective parameters and quantitative design parameters. We expect this paper provides some guidance to the future research on the field.
