Harsh ride quality on Nissan Primera - what's the possible cause?

Why would a Primera 2.2 diesel have a very harsh ride on standard wheels?

The Nissan Primera was generally seen as quite a soft, comfortable choice in its day. Is the suspension original? It might be that the dampers are quite tired and need replacement. Also check the tyres pressures – if the tyres are overinflated, the ride might be on the harsh side.
