Airmatic

More ride comfort, more vehicle dynamics

In combination with variable damper control, the air suspension system ensures ride comfort and dynamic handling at a very high level. The damping at each wheel is adapted to the current driving situation and road surface condition. This is done rapidly and precisely using two separate valves for the compression and rebound of the dampers. The occupants enjoy a soft basic suspension setup and the secure feeling of high handling stability as speed increases. Hardening of the spring rate, for example on bends and when braking, effectively reduces rolling and pitching movements. With the “Comfort” and “Sport” settings, AIRMATIC can be configured for more comfort or sportiness. Thanks to the pneumatic all-round selflevelling suspension, the vehicle maintains a constant level irrespective of the load. The suspension level can be raised by 30 mm to increase ground clearance. At high speeds the suspension is automatically lowered by up to 20 mm, helping to reduce aerodynamic drag and improve handling stability.
