An algebraic variety $X$ is called a homogeneous variety if the automorphism group $\mathrm{Aut}(X)$ acts on $X$ transitively, and a homogeneous space if there exists a transitive action of an algebraic group on $X$. We prove a criterion of smoothness of a suspension to construct a wide class of homogeneous varieties. As an application, we give criteria for a Danielewski surface to be a homogeneous variety and a homogeneous space. Also, we construct affine suspensions of arbitrary dimension that are homogeneous varieties but not homogeneous spaces.
