Car cabin acoustical comfort is one of the factors which attract the buyer prospective buyer on purchasing a new vehicle. Basically the amount of discomfort depends to magnitude, frequency, direction and also the duration of exposed vibration in the cabin. The comfort of the driving influences driving performance. Generally the vibration is caused by two main sources: engine transmission and interaction between tyre and road surface. In this study the effects of vibration to noise in passenger car cabin were investigated. Vehicle acoustical comfort index (VACI) was used to evaluate the noise annoyance level and vibration dose value (VDV) was used to evaluate the vibration level. By using the changes trend of noise and vibration level depending to engine speeds, LP model was used to optimise the vibration level in the passenger car cabin.
