is suspension of Skoda Rapid good enough for Indian road conditions?

Skoda Rapid follows the refined traditional suspension system for both Front axle and rear axle i.e. front Suspension is powered with McPherson Suspension system with Lower Triangular Links and Torsion Stabilizer and the rear Suspension comes with Compound Link Crank-Axle and some small components like linkages and spring mountings are enough to complete the Skoda rapid suspension system. According to me most of the cars on Indian roads are also using the same suspension combination as Skoda is using in Skoda Rapid which means this suspension combination is enough to drive on all drivable roads in India. As per above mentioned parameters I would conclude that Skoda Rapid have the right Suspension to tackle Indian roads.
My friend mentioned above that suspension system of Skoda Rapid McPherson Suspension system with Lower Triangular Links for front while Torsion Stabilizer and the rear Suspension comes with Compound Link Crank-Axle. I have also seen this type of suspension system configuration in many running cars in Indian market which simply concludes that suspension system of Skoda Rapid is perfect for Indian roads which means you can travel on any road car freely. The best thing I love about this suspension is that I provides full smooth ride if I compare with other cars of its class.
Skoda Rapid has improvised a redefined traditional suspension system in both front axle and the rear axle. The lower triangular links and Torsion stabilizer for the front axle and link-crank axle for the rear one with small linkages and spring mountains are just abundant enough to complete the car's suspension system. Many of the Indian manufactures do use the same suspension technology which means this car can be easily driven in the Indian roads and highways. This combination of suspension provides a hassle-free ride, without any jerks and is smooth enough to travel in any road no matter what the condition is.
