In combination with continuously variable damper control, the AIR BODY CONTROL multi-chamber air suspension system provides top-class ride comfort and driving dynamics. The damping system adjusts to the specific driving and road conditions at each wheel.
This is done rapidly and precisely using separate valves for the compression and rebound of the dampers. The passengers enjoy a basic suspension that is soft and, as the speed increases, a secure feeling from the high level of driving stability. A stiffening of the spring response, for instance on bends or when braking, effectively reduces rolling movements. Via DYNAMIC SELECT, the AIR BODY CONTROL function allows a choice of three levels: “Comfort”, “Sport” and “Sport +”, for a more comfortable ride or a sportier style of driving. The pneumatic all-round self-levelling system, meanwhile, keeps the vehicle’s level constant, irrespective of the load it is carrying. At speeds above 138 km/h the suspension is automatically lowered by 15 mm, helping to reduce aerodynamic drag and further improve handling stability
